Easyfundrising is an easy way to raise money for Leicestershire Wildlife Hospital
Introduction To Us
Our aim is to rescue, rehabilitate and release wildlife casualties brought in to us. This may include treatment, long term/short term hospitalisation and monitoring.
We receive no government funding and rely completely on donations given by the public or by funds we have raised with the public’s help – running events, items given to us to sell, car boot sales etc. Registered charity number: 1078817.
Because we are a charity, we must dispense funds raised towards keeping the hospital open such as funding utility bills, building facilities so that we can keep up with the demand of casualties brought to us. This means we rely heavily on dedicated volunteers to helping our cause both on the animal care side and the fundraising side.
If we can treat it, we’ll do just that taking into consideration the animals wellbeing throughout the process. We have dedicated staff on hand to hand rear orphaned wildlife brought to us and to care for critically ill patients. Please note, we can no longer treat invasive species due to new licensing laws (see ‘news’ for more information).
As a wildlife hospital we do not take in domestic casualties – animals that are tame, pets, not of a wildlife species. Hospital staff will release patients brought to our care by members of the public back to their found locations if appropriate (to reduce stress). In the event that a domestic animal needs help please contact RSPCA or local vets for assistance.
