We are sorry but Wildwood Trust cannot accept sick and injured animals brought to us by members of the public and we do not take in any pets needing to be re-homed of any species.
Our vets and the zoo licensing authority advise us that we should not allow injured or sick animals found by members of the public or pets needing to be re-homed inside the park boundaries as this increases the chance of transfer of disease to Wildwood's animals.
Contact your nearest vet if you are at all concerned about an animal's welfare - many vets do not charge for wildlife injuries.
