Help us look after sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.

Coronavirus Guidelines

We, at Cuan Wildlife Rescue are committed to keeping members of the public, our staff and volunteers safe during these times with the Coronavirus.  Therefore, we may ask you some other questions when you ring us up after finding an animal!  These are for safety purposes and not designed to be intrusive or cause offence, I hope you can appreciate that we need to ask them.

You will be asked; if you have had contact with anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus, feel unwell or are showing any of the symptoms associated with it.  We may ask you to leave  the animal in a safe place so we can collect it without having contact with you.  Again, please do not take offence, it is to protect you and ourselves.

If you do come to our hospital, please wear a face mask.  There is hand gel available to use before and after entering.  Please do not ‘borrow’ it (!), it is for use for everyone who comes.  There are handwashing facilities available.

Thank you for your understanding, we still need to care for Britains’ wildlife and continue helping the orphaned, sick and injured that need us.  Thank you for your support.

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 5,700 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.

Unfortunately not every story is a happy one.
This poor badger was brought in after being seen running across the road not looking quite right.

He was extremely emaciated with infected territorial wounds on his back end and could see his was an elderly gentleman.
Because of his very poor condition the kindest thing for him would be to euthanised.

This beautiful girl has made an amazing recovery! We are so happy for her ⭐️

Now she will spend some time in her enclosure to gain a little weight. She will soon be released back where she came from.

Please vote for us to share in a £50,000 grant at https://mygivingcircle.org/cuan-wildlife-rescue

This grant would mean so much to us because it will help towards the cost of a much needed new Badger Enclosure.🦡

2021 has been an extremely busy year for badger cub admissions. Unfortunately not just for Shropshire badgers but for other orphaned badger cubs from other counties too.
This has had a tremendous impact on Cuan Wildlife Rescue’s hospital & rehabilitation facilities and we are now in desperate need for a new rehabilitation enclosure.
Please help us to help rehabilitate badger cubs so that they can be returned back to the wild where they belong 🙏🏼
It won’t cost you a penny as voting is free.So please vote at :
