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.

Could you set up an amazon wish list? I don’t have a car or live that close by but I’m happy to donate!

If anyone around gallows corner Tesco’s in Romford has anything, I’m happy to take this on your behalf. Can meet at Tesco to collect. 🦔🦔🦔

Happy to collect from Stanford and Corringham and deliver to the hospital

The Crown in Billericay are happy to store donations 😁. Donna Vanner organises

Will bring you some tins of dog food tonight!!!!!

Is it dog food you buy for hedgehogs?

How do we access your wish list on Amazon?

What’s the address pls? X

I have loads of towels (at least 10 bath towels) in Mitcham but no means of transport. Happy to post x

Ill drop some newspaper down tomorrow

Just a thought. Have you a stall at the vegan fair Sunday? I could drop newspapers off there. Others might be able to do the same if you posted on Southend Vegans perhaps.

I have some duvet covers if any good. Xxx

Where do we deliver donations to? X

I bought you both in earlier, was nice seeing you , Thankyou for all your hard work with the animals

I live locally so will sort out some towels and sheets for you and drop them off. What times are you open this weekend? Xx

Are you still looking for places to rehome the hedgehogs ?

I will BRING some in!

I have towels. Are there any collection points nearby?

Where can we deliver this?

What time are you open till? as I have loads of newspapers

Can you make use of baby milk?

I’ve ordered you 2 sets of digital scales from your Amazon wish list. Should be delivered by the 6th Xxx

Hi hun. In our local Co op store they did a thing where they let a local pet charity put a box in for donations, might b worth trying to get that in your local stores xxx

If someone could collect I have a couple of hundred newspapers at my house I deliver a local paper and last week they where left out in the rain no good for reading but good for using in other ways. I live in Avelely Thurrock.

Does it matter what tinned cat/dog food? How cheap it is etc

You all do a fantastic job ❤️

I have some broadsheet newspapers which I'll deliver soon as I can

We delivered a big bag of dog biscuits today, hope the foxes and badgers like them ❤

Can I have address where I can send?

where do you have a donation point for food tins etc close to Hockley? 😍 Apologies if someone has asked and I’ve missed the reply! X And if so, what’s best to donate?

Have you got a amazon wish list? I’ve notice other rescues do, it’s a good easy idea

My parents have been saving newspapers for you. I’ll collect them and get them to you very soon

Would love to donate but cant get there, does anyone collect in Billericay area or is there another way to donare stuff?

Will have a sort out of Library papers today and deliver Saturday with chocolate biscuits 😉 xx

Would tinned dog food be any good? I have loads that my Dachshund won’t eat?

Are you still looking for gardens to relocate hedgehogs? Were happy to help. Please inbox me . Thanks

I have a spare duvet - is that of any use to you?

I dropped a tonne of towels and blankets off on Saturday

I have a few old towels,duvet covers and pillow covers if that's any use

You should set up an Amazon Wish List which enables people to buy stuff and get it shipped straight to you. Don't forget to post the link on social media!

Do hedgehogs like chocolate biscuits then?

I have a few metro newspapers at work but wouldn’t be able to get them to you

Where is their amazon wish list?

Where are you based?

Can you pick up from Laindon ?

I have sheets if you need them ?

Hi. I could assist 8.45 till 2.45pm most days during the winter months. Could I help or do you require someone to do a full day up to 6pm. Thankyou

How old do you have to be as my girls would love to come volunteer - I'd be with them too of course.

I wish you were nearer to me! Xx i would love to help just too far for me to come back and forth from colchester everyday

If I didn't have small humans to look after I'd be up for this - so gimme like 10 years and I'm there xx

I can help Monday afternoons through to evening if that helps at all? I drive and live about half hour away? I would love to lend a hand and help out 😁

I would love to help but I can’t drive yet 😭 As soon as I pass my test, I’m applying! ☺️

I am hoping to have more spare time in the new year . What are the hours and what does it involve?

Do you take work experience students from Writtle college? My son could help every Wednesday for the next 12mths if so?

I drive. Where is this based please?

Aw, I really wish I could teleport myself there to help you all out. Miss you all 😞 Hopefully, you can get some more Writtle students and wannabe vets come to help you out ! You won't get any better experience than working there. If you want real proper experience with animals and see the ture nitty-gritty side of working with animals South Essex Wildlife Hospital is the place to be 🦊 🦉🥰

I used to volunteer here years ago when I was at college. It was great! Unfortunately I don’t live close by anymore 😞

Are you easy to get to if coming by train? xx

I can help out wednesdays ...from 8.00 till 6.00 if needed ...
