Appeal for Wildlife Treatment Unit
Our wildlife rescue operates throughout the year and helps rehabilitate injured wildlife, birds and hedgehogs brought into the Animal Sanctuary on a daily basis. We are the only Wildlife Rescue open seven days a week in Derbyshire dedicated to helping wildlife.
We’ve seen demand for our services increase dramatically with local vets and Wildlife Trusts referring cases to us. We’ve out grown our existing facilities and we are launching a fundraising campaign this year to build new larger treatment unit to allow us to cope with the demand. We estimate the project will cost £10,000 for erecting a new building, constructing a treatment room for injured wildlife and recovery unit with a free flight aviary for birds. This good news is we have areas suitable to site the units and just need to raise enough funds to make this dream come true.
Last year we helped over 300 hedgehogs and a dedicated unit for treatments would make the world of difference to us.
Help Us Raise £10,000 for equipment and housing for wildlife
It’s not just hedgehogs. We have helped many injured birds from owls to baby mice. Whenever possible we release all wildlife back into the wild. Some even stay on at the Sanctuary and live free around the center. A pigeon and a dove decided they liked it so much, they decided to have a family right next to our visitor center.
We’ve had great success with our ‘Hedgehog Talks for Kids’ last year and hope this new facility will allow even more schools and volunteers to come down and get hands on with wildlife and learn about their care.
