Thanks for visiting!
We hope you find our website interesting and useful, We have run our registered charity since 2007 and we ran it unregistered since 1993 and did little bits before that. We only recently changed our name from "Wyre Forest Animal Trust" as we needed to move to a premises with more space, as we have become more popular in this area and our old name was not fitting as we no longer live near the Wyre Forest, but we still cover all our old areas but they are more easily accessed from here.
It is so sad but many of our wildlife species are dying out and will soon become extinct, some species even before our children grow up.
Prince Charles and the Government, say we need to protect these animals for our future generations but this is left to our councils and to charities like us to provide.
Unfortunately most of our local councils do not have the finances to provide for this as the funding they have is swallowed up with other projects they feel are more important and in most cases this is sadly true, so it falls on charities and other organisations like ours and the generosity of the public to generously donate and help us in other ways to keep these organisations going, Support is urgently needed by these Charities and Organisations, for local Councils to make it easier for people like us to keep running and be sympathetic to our causes by allowing us to be on site 24 hours to be here for these animals bought into us, as not many are healthy, and many are very sick, as we are after all taking some pressure off them to do what the government assure us they are supposed to be doing
Applying for permission to run these Charities all costs money and that money all comes out of the funds that are donated to us or the money we have to worked hard to raise to pay for the care of these sick, injured or orphaned animals.
We are out most weekends at shows and other events to raise money for the medical help, feeding, treating the ill, and feeding and treating those animals that usually hibernate over winter but they are too small to survive hibernation in our cold winter. We are here to feed the orphaned and sick animals throughout the night all through the year, We offer our services to the emergency services, when they find any animals in distress and needing attention during there shift, this can be day or night, We have worked with the British Hedgehog Preservation Society since 1993 as carers for the injured and orphaned Hedgehogs that people have found around this area and need help. I started by volunteering for the RSPCA in 1993 by offering my help in washing the seabirds that had washed ashore covered in crude oil and dying, during the Milton Haven (South Wales) "Sea Empress" disaster, sadly most of them did die, some while we were cleaning them,Its a time that will stick in my mind forever, It made me realise how precious these animals were, but we were helpless to save more than a few. I will at a later date try to add a video i took at that time.
There is no money for us to be made for our charity work but every animal we can release after nursing it back to health is worth millions to us is satisfaction that that creature would have died without our help.
REMEMBER IF WE CAN HELP YOU WITH ANY ANIMAL BE IT WILDLIFE OR AN UNWANTED PET WE WILL DO WHAT WE CAN AS THESE ANIMALS LIVES ARE OUR LEGACY. WE MUST DO WHAT WE CAN.
