Help us look after sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.

Welcome to Cuan Wildlife Rescue

Cuan Wildlife Rescue

Cuan Wildlife is a wildlife rescue centre where we take in sick, injured or orphaned wild animals and birds, with the aim of nursing them back to health. We regularly admit over 6,000 animals & birds in one year. Once fully recovered, great emphasis is placed on returning them to the wild - in most cases, this means back to the area from where they came, where they may have a mate waiting, or where, at least, they will be familiar with their territory or hunting ground. Cuan Wildlife rescue is a registered Charity which is dependant on donations from the public and businesses.

Any donations, bottles or soft toys, can be dropped at our wildlife hospital or at our charity shop in Much Wenlock. Thank you so much for your support - we look forward to seeing lots of you at our Open Day on Sunday 14th July 🦊🦆🦉🦇🐍🦔

This Feral Pigeon (Columba livia domestica) was found by a member of the public with one of its wings stuck in netting under one of the Shrewsbury railway bridges! We sent a volunteer out to assess the situation but sadly it was not safe for us to attempt the rescue. Luckily Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service were able to help us get the poor bird down! Some how he escaped uninjured and after a few days in our care he was released once again! 💚

A massive thank you to the fire crew from the fire service that came out to help!

With the high number of animals in our care we are currently using a lot of cleaning products to keep up with the mess they keep making, such as these beautiful badger cub (Meles meles)! Trying to keep up with the large amount of laundry is a real challenge, as well as keeping surfaces and cages wiped down constantly.

That being said we are desperately low on washing machine laundry liquid, washing powder, kitchen roll, and a couple other items that can be seen on our Amazon wishlist.

If anyone can help with these items that would be amazing. These can be purchased from our amazon wishlist via the link below or bought else where and brought/sent straight to us at the rescue centre.

As always, thank you for your support! 🦡🤍

Who can guess what species this baby is going to grow up to become? 🤔

It’s a Gull! We aren’t 100% sure on the species at this point as some Gull chicks look very similar, however we believe him go be a little Herring Gull chick! 🍟

When Cuan Wildlife were contacted by Pippen Smith Et Al for a rescue story for her new book, we were more than happy to contribute. There are many wonderful rescue stories in the book, including our story about a coot that was rescued in freezing cold conditions which took place over several days. The book is available on Amazon - all royalties from the sales of the book will be donated to helping animals.

Happy reading!
