Thank you for choosing to support our self funded, non-profit, small Charity. Our Charity Number is: 1194952.
We receive no funding from the Government, Lottery, or any large organisation, and solely rely on donations and support from lovely people like yourself.
What costs do you have to cover? You may ask.
Veterinary and medications are the biggest and most important and necessary costs that we regularly need to raise money for. Medications and Veterinary assistance is expensive and we do not receive it for free.
Vets do have a duty of care to see wildlife by law when brought in by a member of the public but most animals are usually put to sleep as they do not have the facilities to care for them. Rescue centres may receive a small discount but are always charged when bringing any animal/wildlife to see a vet, or requesting medications or prescriptions.
We also have to cover all food, formulas, and special diets for a variety of different species.
In addition to that, our incubators run 24/7, along with heat pads and heat lamps for our youngsters and the poorly, which is expensive in electricity.
Every single penny raised solely goes on running the rescue. Not one penny lines anyone’s pockets and nobody gets paid.
