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.

Did this fox come from Dagenham Essex as we have one near us that has this very skinny tail and other stuff going on rang Rspca And they don't want to no

Poor baby 😔 Great idea to share re potential feeder, though. Well done and thanks for all you do. 🙂

This is just torture for these beautiful animals, scratching themselves slowly to death ☹️you have in the last five years sent me two separate mange treatments and both times I found success. It’s really really wonderful seeing them return with fur eventually again. Thank you for caring. I chose to volunteer a donation to help with future medicines for the many foxes you help. Bless you. ❤️💐

My word what a gorgeous face this little beauty has. Thank you for looking after them 💜🥰

Thank you for the medication I received in the post on Friday 14/2/20 for the poor Fox I’ve been feeding with seriously bad mange. Fox didn’t come for 2 days but came on Sunday 16/2 I took your advice & put some honey on a piece of bread mixed with the meds which he ate, then I gave him more food, fingers crossed 🤞 his on the road to recovery 🙏🙏 Next medicine is next Sunday 🙏 Thank You 😍

God bless it thank u for saveing it one of God's creatures which has every right to be hear as us xx

Over years I have been able to treat several foxes and it is great to see them recover. Thank you for caring.

Thanks to the hospital, I have successfully treated foxes on two separate occasions. It does work so do contact them.

You gave us some treatment for our fox and after the first dose his eyes started looking brighter. It was amazing to see him getting better and better. He ended up with a beautiful bushy tail and was a very cheeky fox

Ah so awful, well done & thank you x

You helped me treat a fox I feed which now has a lovely bushy tail again xxx

Treated fox who was living back of next doors garden, put his meds in his food. Used to hide food, knew he would find but didnt want to damage his scavenger instincts. Was so lovely seeing him get better week after week.

I have a very good looking , healthy fox visiting so I’ll keep an eye out for any changes , well done to you all

Bless you for your wonderful work x

Do you still need donations for your quiz night raffle? If so when is a good time to deliver them?

My friend works at Yankee Candles and gave me something to donate to the next auction/event 😀 Want me to pop it by the hospital some time this week?

I've got some bits x will pop them in tomorrow x

I will have some bits for you too. Xxx
