Cuan Wildlife Rescue Coronavirus Guidelines

We, at Cuan Wildlife Rescue are committed to keeping members of the public, our staff and volunteers safe during these times with the Coronavirus.  Therefore, we may ask you some other questions when you ring us up after finding an animal!  These are for safety purposes and not designed to be intrusive or cause offence, I hope you can appreciate that we need to ask them.

You will be asked; if you have had contact with anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus, feel unwell or are showing any of the symptoms associated with it.  We may ask you to leave  the animal in a safe place so we can collect it without having contact with you.  Again, please do not take offence, it is to protect you and ourselves.

If you do come to our hospital, there is hand gel available to use before and after entering.  Please do not ‘borrow’ it (!), it is for use for everyone who comes.  There are handwashing facilities available.

Thank you for your understanding, we still need to care for Britains’ wildlife and continue helping the orphaned, sick and injured that need us.  Thank you for your support.

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 4,800 animals and 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.

This weekend is going to be nice weather, many people will be pleased to get out into the garden and start getting it tidied up. From now and the coming weeks, female hedgehogs will be nesting and getting ready to have their young. Their favourite spot is often under sheds or alike. So if you suspect a Mum may be in there with young ,DO NOT DISTURB THEM "AT ALL" . In the early days after giving birth she may harm or even eat them if you do. PLEASE if you happen across a nest and the mum starts to run, pick her up and pop into a high sided box ( recycling boxes are great for this) . At this point give us a call to ask what to do next.
The reason for picking up mum is that she will automatically abandon them if disturbed and the young won’t have a mum.
Please help us to help our wildlife ... if you have any questions, do ask.

This will melt your heart. Watch the story of these fox cubs as they are now in our care. A heartbreaking story where their mother was killed but to see their reaction to each other when they all met again is beautiful. They will remain in our care until they are adults and ready for release in a safe area. Thank you to Hayley for putting together such a good video.
During this hard time for all, animals such as these are coming in daily and we really need to help to continue to care for them.
You can do so by buying items from our amazon wish list, these cubs are eating puppy milk replacer and puppy food like there is no tomorrow!
Or you can donate to their care by our website

Thank you so much for your support, it means the world to us and the wildlife needing our help.
We will keep you updated on their growth!
