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.
