Winter Opening Hours

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.

Feeding garden birds in the snow

Birds need warmth in this cold and wintry weather. Therefore it's great to include foods that have high fat content such as bacon rinds, cooked rice, pasta and grated cheese. These foods can encourage unusual birds to your garden.
I’ve had long tailed tits visit my garden, I’ve lived here over 15 years and never seen one here. d Sources

Birds love eating fresh fruits and delicious berries that can be found hanging off trees. Try a few soft bodied fruits on your bird table so it’s easy food for them. Hanging bird feeders from your bird table will make your garden attractive to a wider range of birds. Stuff them with sunflower seeds, fat balls and nyger seed and watch as goldfinches, tits and songbirds crowd to them.
Birds like to feel safe and sheltered nearby while they are feeding. Place your bird table close to thick hedges and overhanging trees so they can quickly hide should there be any danger.

You can put out cat/dog meat too. Mash lightly for the smaller birds.
Don’t forget the ground feeders too. Many birds prefer to eat here so place food for them in a sheltered area.

I’d love to see your feeding birds today. Let’s spread some happiness abd watch our beautiful wildlife 😍

We have had many call outs to large animal rescues over the last couple of weeks.
Our rescuers often can search for hours if the finder is unable to wait with the animal.
Our work really can be a rollercoaster, highs and lows , smiles and tears.
The fox below was put in this warm cage , with cozy blankets after being found tucked behind a hedge next to a road. It was clear he was heavily concussed. He rested like this for 3hrs when he quietly slipped away.
Any loss is heartbreaking, but to know the animal is safe, warm , pain free is a comfort to us all , making every effort worthwhile by the team. #sleepwellmrfox
