WE URGENTLY NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO SURVIVE – PLEASE HELP

IF YOU CAN HELP BY MAKING A DONATION, PLEASE CLICK HERE

This year has been probably the most difficult in our 36-year history, financially at least.

Most of our meagre ‘back-up’ funds have been used up because we have not been able to

fundraise for the past 6 months.

 

Coupled with this, 2020 has been our busiest year so far, with casualty numbers exceeding

those treated in the same period last year and therefore our expenditure has increased as well.

Now we seem to be entering the second wave of the pandemic, Vale’s future is particularly uncertain

and, despite the fantastic response that we received from our members and supporters earlier in the year,

we cannot sustain this continued lack of regular funding.

 

I have to admit to being very worried about the charity’s future.

 

There are very few large wildlife hospitals in the UK and to lose Vale would be a massive blow to the

UK’s sick and injured wildlife, not to mention the loss of over 25 jobs.

The UK’s wildlife faces more problems today than ever before and unfortunately most of these problems are caused by people. A vast majority of the casualties we treat at Vale have sustained their injuries through coming into contact with humans: road traffic accidents, cat and dog attacks, fence injuries, mower and strimmer incidents, habitat loss, building work, new roads, snares, the list is endless. Some people say that injured wildlife should be left alone, we shouldn’t interfere but should ‘let nature take it’s course’. I would agree wholeheartedly with that sentiment if indeed the problems encountered by our wildlife were ‘natural’ but very few are, and I believe we have a duty to try to put right the damage that we are doing.

Casualties can be brought to us at any
time. Unfortunately we are often not
able to collect small animal casualties
from you as our staff are needed in the
Hospital itself. We rely on you bringing
the animal in to us.
