WHAT WE DO...
We dedicate our time to providing a 24 hour emergency service for sick & injured wildlife in the Salisbury & surrounding area. In addition we have a telephone help line for emergencies & general advice on wildlife care.
With support & help from the local vets we have a sound knowledge of treatments for various creatures. We work endlessly to find new ways to help creatures survive and improve their prognosis.
Today the rescue service, help line & care centre are run by volunteers. We always makes sure there is an ambulance operating 24 hours a day 365 days a year. We look after the wildlife at the centre or often in the case of very young or sick we give them 24 hour care in our own home.
Our sole aim is to help the wildlife in our area, alleviate suffering & ideally release them back into the wild as soon as possible. Those not able to be released remain at the centre or go to a suitable sanctuary. Many creatures are alive today that would otherwise have died from their injuries.
We all help to maintain the animal houses & build new ones to provide the level of comfort & suitability the wildlife deserve.
Wildlife rescue is 100% voluntary non profit organisation which has no other funding & therefore we rely on fundraising events, donations & membership fees from “Friends of Wildlife Rescue”. All money raised goes to help the animals & so your support has a direct impact on their lives.
