South Essex Wildlife Hospital

Dedicated to putting ‘life’ back into the ‘wild‘, SEWH is a wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and public advice charity. We care for sick and injured wildlife and aim to release animals back into the wild.

No injured or sick animal is turned away. SEWH relies entirely on donations.

If you find a sick, injured, baby animal or bird please call us on 01375 893893 for advice on what to do. See HERE for more details.

We help thousands of birds and animals each year.
They wouldn't be alive today without your help. Even a small sum will make a big difference.

We still have 10 fox 'cubs' looking for release sites. They need to get back into the wild asap as they are now pretty big! If you have a rural location , the local population of foxes isn't too big and are healthy and you are happy to feed them till they disperse please get in touch. We hope to only need 2 more venues , 5 cubs to each if possible. Thank you 🦊 ... See MoreSee Less

Unfortunately that's a really big ask these days, too many people means too many houses, means too many cars and roads and too many guns 😩😩 I hope they find somewhere suitable, integrate well and are happy 💖💖

We are willing to support a release site - there are a couple of foxes and deer out the back other than that a old badger waddles around now and again - we are in Ramsden Heath and back directly onto open land, hedges and forest

We are in a suitable location. We have a fox cub visiting and a mum somewhere but not aware of anymore foxes. How’s the best way to get in touch? We’re in East Hanningfield.

Shame , I’m not classed as rural , I have a dyke running the back of my property and a mummy fox with her babies ( not babies no more ) lives there who I feed every night , wish I could help x

❤️ i have cubs in my garden every nite, theyre so cute. Dont know it all the ones i see are all one family or lots of different ones 🤔

Have emailed before about the hedgehogs too , more thank happy to have you release any animals in my garden have sent pictures before via email 🦔🦊

We have foxes up our hill in Chafford Hundred, with cubs frequenting our garden often & a den on the hill. Would these get on with the others??

Oak road Crays hill, full of fields and forests everywhere and not too many houses

i have a family that come into my garden on a daily basis.. .4 of them, i absolutely love them and dont mind their visits one bit.... just wish my dogs felt the same, they go apesh** when they see them , thankfully a wall and a window between them all

Just make sure the hunting people don’t take them on the pretext of rehoming them! Never can be too sure nowadays!☹️

I'm in Bulphan have a hedge at the back of my garden that leads on to fields will happily have hedgehogs and foxes we have both visit our garden already

Would love to do a badger release🥰

All foxes do very well in my area. Plenty of locals regularly feed them. I would love to help. Please get in touch. I live in Loughton

Susan Jane do you think the fields behind your house would work? Xxxx

Martin Allen another animal story? Xxx

I sent you a DM......

Charlotte Read can’t we have some out the back?xx

Ann Kyle

Julie Warren

The old Pitsea land field

Pauline Steele ?

Just a question, will they disdperse if you keep feeding them? We have juvenile foxes on our allotment site that we are "subsidising" with food.

Thank you for all the hard work you do. We brought a fox cub in yesterday that possibly could have been poisoned. He was in our neighbours garden. We hope he has recovered, but if not was put to sleep so no longer suffering. Thank you for taking care of him.🙏👍

Aww I hope you find them a home soon. I’m in the suburbs, we have so many foxes living among us because their habitats are now our back gardens 😢

Not sure how the fox population is in our area but would be happy to help. We are in wivenhoe near a wooden protected area. Just PM me
