this is an American rescue but applies equally to the UK. we have rescued 4 injured cats in the last 10 days, before the warms up and the cats are used to being indoors more often now is the time to build a catio for them to keep them safe and give wildlife more of a fighting chance against the man made hazards that challenge their survival.

Will you take a few minutes to hear their stories – and to share this video with your cat-loving friends? (These stories may be too graphic for some; be forewarned.) Thanks to Second Chance Wildlife Center in Gaithersburg, MD Wildlife Center of Virginia and City Wildlife for sharing their stories.

Well done to those Office workers 🙌🏼 x

Pest control, what a feckin cheek, humans are a feckin pest!

Well done and thank you to the office guys

Anyone going to name and shame the pest control company then?

Well done to the office workers. Foxes are such beautiful creatures.

Well done to the office workers for saving these two lives

Maybe a silly question... but do pest control companies trap and kill foxes? Is this legal? 😔

Well done to the two guys . Pest control should be ashamed of themselves for this absolutely disgusting cruelty

Pest control are disgusting they are all inbreds someone should lock them in a cage.pest control use their company as a cover to kill wildlife animals. Psychopaths in disguise springs into mind.

Sad day today as we were called out to rescue this young badger who was trapped behind a fence panel. Sadly, despite first impressions he had a number of long standing injuries and his wounds, and his infection, were just too great to save him. Thanks to everyone at the South Essex Wildlife Hospital for doing everything they could. ... See MoreSee Less

the latest seal arrival, we are trying to get our stables refurbished, this one is nowhere near ready but we had nowhere else to put the pup. we are desperate for a purpose built unit for these animals. our application for the south Essex insurance brokers charity grant has got through to the next stage thanks to everyone who voted for us , if we are fortunate enough to win we will have the funds to complete a vital addition to our facilities. ...

we had a lovely fox come in today, it was found caught in netting , fortunately the rspca officer who collected him noticed he had a little problem, down below and didn't release him. the poor fox had a burst testicle so sue the hospital manager suggested it would be better for the fox to have it removed rather than try and repair it. Tom had the injured part off pretty quick and the fox is currently recovering. never let an animal go after removing netting, they are often injured somewhere! ... See MoreSee Less

British divers marine life rescue bought a seal in yesterday and another today . although very poorly they still put up a bit of a fight and being grey seals they have rather fierce looking teeth ! one has some infected bite wounds, possibly caused by an out of control dog, the other a respiratory infection. ...
