Care for Wild Animals

Wild animals should not be kept as pets but sometimes you may come across injured animals or abandoned youngsters.

If this happens, have a look at What to do with orphaned animals or What to do with injured animals.

As soon as you can, take the animal to the nearest vet. All vets will provide free treatment for a sick or injured wild animal or bird (including pigeons).

If you have the time and transport, you could take the animal to Stapeley Grange RSPCA Wildlife Centre in Nantwich, Cheshire, where it will receive specialist care and rehabilitation.

Animal health

The RSPCA national website contains a wealth of information and areas of interest – Animal Care (including wildlife advice), Science Group and more.
