Wildlife and Pet Advice & Rescue

Rescued Tawny Owl

The Wildlife Trust does not have the skills or facilities to care for injured animals, but there are several organisations across Birmingham and the Black Country who do. If you have found an injured animal we hope the contact details below will be helpful to you. Also, consider calling your local vet - many vets will treat wild animals for a reduced charge, often only the cost of any medicines used.

Please let us know if any of these contact details are incorrect.

Wildlife Crime

If you witness a wildlife crime the OFFICIAL GOVERNMENT ADVICE IS TO RING 999. If you are concerned about giving your own details you can contact CRIMESTOPPERS.

For more information about wildlife crime go to the Wildlife Crime page on DIRECTGOV

The Partnership for Action Against Wildlife Crime (PAW) is a multi-agency body comprising representatives of the organisations involved in wildlife law enforcement in the UK. You can find out more on their  DEFRA page
