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, please wear a face mask.  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.

A huge Thankyou to one of our lovely volunteers, who very generously bought and donated these new scales. Just with the sheer number of hedgehogs that we have in , our one set of hog scales just hindered the volunteers work and Karen could see this.
So Thankyou Karen so much 🦔🦔🦔🦔🦔

Hi, we have some dog biscuits which the badgers don’t eat (!!), hillbrae can use them so if anyone can collect and take them that would be great! Ring or message us if you can! Thanks x

Thank you to everyone who voted for us at Mygivingcircle. We have been awarded a £500.00 grant!

They have now started a new campaign which ends on 30 December with another award for the top 10 charities in each category!

Please vote for us again if you can. You do not need to make a donation to vote, & can vote as many times as you want between now and 30 December

This money will really make a difference to us this year, as we have been unable to have our usual fundraising events to raise the money we need to contnue our work with the wildlife

Thank you.

Thankyou to all that have enquired about the operation on the cygnet today. The hook was so embedded in her chest, but thankfully was removed without too much trouble . She’s now on antibiotics and will go home as soon as her healing is done. #muteswan #angryswan #greatvet #hookedswan

This cygnet has taken 2 weeks to catch by our fearless volunteer. A fishing hook has embedded in his check. Likely to be an operation tomorrow #muteswan #keepyoupoted
