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.

Today I was able to release some of my favourite birds. Firstly some of our housemartins…7 of those. Then 8 of my absolute favourites , which many of you will know are Swift’s. These birds fascinate me , they aren’t the easiest to rear by a long shot but seeing them slowly climb in flight into the clouds, always takes my breath away. They will stay airborne for the next two years approx, until mature to mate. They will then return to the UK to their own nest sites to have their own young with their chosen mate. Isn’t that just incredible?
I just love them 🥰

Without a doubt, hoglets are our most common admitted animal at the moment. Some days taking anything between 10 and 25 in a single day!
Whilst they drink milk from their mum, it is not cows milk. They are lactose intolerant and will make them very poorly, which in some cases can be fatal.
Should you find hogs or hoglets, please contact us for advice . Keeping an animal safe and warm is often lifesaving without attempting food or water until it can be brought in.
