High on a misty, windswept moor, or in a corner of a four-in-the-morning North Devon town, our
animal ambulance leaves the scene of another rescue. But as another animal is taken to safety, it’s only
the start of our animal rehabilitation work…
Animal rehabilitation begins
After the rescue and first aid comes animal rehabilitation: days, weeks or months of painstaking care from our volunteer team, the vets and the RSPCA’s West Hatch wildlife rehabilitation centre who so kindly help us. Occasionally, animals are so badly traumatised that no amount of rehab can put them right. But in most cases, it’s amazing to see the transformation from the injured, mistreated, underweight or terrified creature that we rescued.
A visit to our Misty Centre or our Barnstaple special care unit reveals the difference our unpaid volunteers make to dogs, cats, goats and dozens of other species. And every issue of our newsletter is packed with rehabilitation success stories.
Animal rehabilitation takes time and money
Grabbing animals from the jaws of adversity and giving them new lives takes time, money and commitment from people like you. Veterinary costs, physical therapy and animal rehab don’t get any cheaper. That’s why we rely on support from caring individuals and local organisations.
