Leicestershire Wildlife Hospital home page


Leicestershire Wildlife Hospital is a charity dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of sick, injured, orphaned and distressed wild animals and birds throughout Leicestershire and the surrounding region.

The aim of the hospital is to provide first aid followed by recuperation, rehabilitation and eventual release back into the wild. Any animal unable to be released or relocated is maintained at the hospital, in as natural an environment as possible.

The hospital treats all casualties free of charge

This takes a great deal of money, which has to be raised in any number of ways. All of our money goes to help our casualties.

The hospital is called on by local vets for wildlife cases and from members of the public calling with wildlife emergencies.  We receive no funding other than what we can raise ourselves.

To support our work, please make a donation via Just Giving.
