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.

When you are online shopping , why not register with Give As You Live first? You can then shop with thousands of retailers, who donate a small percentage of your shop to Cuan Wildlife Rescue! No cost to you, but valuable fundraising for us to help British wildlife! Every little helps and we would be so grateful for your help.

We would like to say a BIG thank you to those who have bought anything off our Wishlist. Also to those who have purchased us Amazon gift cards! These gift cards allow us to get supplies that we are in urgent need of, just like live Waxworms for feeding the baby birds!

We are currently in particular need of live foods at the moment as we are getting many birds in that need feeding every 20 minutes morning until dusk! These, or the gift cards, can be found on our Amazon Wishlist via the link below if anyone is able to help!

Thank you all so much! 💚

This week is Mental Health Awareness week. Started by the mental health foundation, this event takes place every year to bring people together and focus on getting good mental health.

As our staff and volunteers know, taking the lives of animals into our own hands not only can take a toll on you physically but also mentally. When the centre is incredibly busy in the summer months our staff and volunteers can become very stressed trying to care for so many sick and orphaned creatures. Also having to make the tough decision to stop a patients treatment, having to euthanise animals (sometimes multiple times on a daily basis), or seeing an animal you put your heart and soul into take a turn for the worst can truly negatively impact our mental health. Sadly with wildlife rehabilitation, although there are so many brilliant and amazing things we get to see and experience, there are also some difficult and sad times which we often do not share online.

During the hard days it can be difficult to remember all the good parts, so here is a video compilation of some of the many releases that we have done. The part that definitely makes our job worthwhile and why we do it! The cases we need to remember during those difficult periods!

Remember, it’s okay to not be okay! Be kind to everyone, you never know what they are going through behind closed doors. Please speak to someone if you are struggling. Nobody needs to suffer in silence.
