WE URGENTLY NEED YOUR SUPPORT – PLEASE HELP

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

The past 12 months have been the most difficult in our 36-year history, financially at least.

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

fundraise for the past 12 months.

 

Coupled with this, 2020 was our busiest year ever, with casualty numbers exceeding

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

There is now light at the end of the tunnel but we have a lot to make up

and, despite the fantastic response that we have received from our members and supporters

we still need your help.

 

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.

 

PLEASE HELP US TO CONTINUE HELPING BRITAIN’S WILDLIFE

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

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.
