first aid kit Wildlife Hospitals


Each year in the U.K. an estimated five million wild birds and animals are injured or disabled in some way.  Many of these injuries happen when animals come into contact with people.  Some are accidents, some not!

The organisations listed below are run by dedicated people, often voluntarily, who offer help to wildlife casualties by treating them, and where possible, releasing them back to the wild.

This listing is provided as a free resource.  It's not possible for us to check every centre ourselves.  We can only go by recommendations made by website visitors and the owners of the rescue centres themselves.  If you'd like to add a hospital please email us
