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.

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.

These two Mute Swan’s (Cygnus olor) were brought into us from different locations on different days. They were both treated inside our hospital and then introduced to each other out on one of our outside pools. They got along straight away sharing the pool very happily. After being ringed it was decided one was male and the other female. A short while later they were both released together at a private pool where hopefully they will stay together! 💚

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! 🧡
