To help the wildlife we love, we have to raise around £260,000 a year. We don’t receive any government funding, so we rely on our generous supporters, sponsors and the general public to keep us going. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to maintain the high standard of care we offer our animal patients.
We urgently need your support to care for injured wildlife and carry on our work in the future.
Money goes towards staff costs, medical treatment and supplies, food, bedding, transport, heating, lighting and much more.
You can help by making a one-off or regular donation, becoming a Cuan member, sponsoring a wild creature, joining our 100 Club or doing a spot of fundraising for us.
Every penny counts, so if you’d like to make a donation, however small, please click one of the links below.
Or, if you are making purchases for yourself via Amazon, use Amazon Smile instead, and nominate Cuan Wildlife Rescue as your chosen charity. We will receive a percentage of what you have spent at no extra cost to you.
Another way to donate, without any cost to you, is to join Give as you Live. This means we get a small amount of money every time you make a purchase online, from sites such as Amazon, eBay, Tesco, John Lewis, Sainsbury’s, Just Eat and Trainline.
It’s not just donations of money that can help the charity! We always have items on our wish list such as cat and dog food, British finch seed, dried mealworms, soft bill bird food, Pro Plan small puppy biscuits, Complan, tissues, black sunflower seeds and sunflower hearts, chick crumbs, mixed corn, black bin liners and even old newspapers!
Most items can be bought from CJ Wildlife or Amazon. We are also supported by Garden Wildlife Direct, who have kindly agreed to donate 10% of any purchase made through the link below to us. So you can buy an item from our wishlist to donate and we will receive some money as well!

Could you organise a fundraising event on behalf of Cuan Wildlife Rescue?
These don’t need to be big events or raise lots of money. Small contributions are equally important, and we couldn’t keep the centre running without them. We can help with publicity and display material where appropriate.
Possible fundraising ideas include:
- Helping with stalls at fetes, shows and so on
- Getting sponsored to do a walk or marathon, jump out of a plane, or whatever you like!
- Coffee mornings
- Book stalls
- Car boot sales
- Quiz or bingo nights
- Cake sales
We are always looking for new fundraising ideas – let us know if you have any suggestions at [email protected]
You can create your own fundraising page in aid of Cuan Wildlife Rescue. Click here for details.
We also appreciate help advertising our own events. If you could put up posters in your local area or contact local newspapers, please get in touch.
