Help us look after sick, injured and orphaned wildlife.

Welcome to Cuan Wildlife Rescue

Shropshire’s only 24/7 wildlife rescue centre

We rescue, care for and rehabilitate sick, injured and orphaned wild animals and birds. Then we release them back into the wild.

Each year we admit and treat around 6,000 creatures and need to raise £477,000 for day-to-day running costs. Please help us by donating time, money or items from our wishlist.

If you’ve seen an injured wild animal or bird, call us for advice on 01952 728070 or visit our contact page.

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.

The Windmill Inn at Rowton, hosted a quiz with a difference on Wednesday 15th November in aid of Cuan Wildlife Rescue and The Friends of The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, Oswestry.

Jane, Jesse, Julie and the Windmill Inn’s customers raised an amazing £700, which will help us care for the sick, injured and orphaned wildlife that will soon inundate us at the hospital, as we will shortly be entering Spring.

Thank you, The Windmill Inn, for supporting us, we really appreciate your kindness.🙏

This adult Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes) was brought into us after being hit by a vehicle. When he first came in we thought he was sadly unlikely to survive due to his condition. However, after a few days rest he made a full recovery! He was released back home by our Fundraiser Deb and one of our volunteers Caz. Here is a video of his release! 🧡

This European Green Woodpecker (Picus viridis) was brought into us after being found with a wound to his head. The wound was cleaned up and he was started on some pain relief and antibiotics. The next day he had perked up massively so was collected again by the finder and released back home! 💚
