All wild animals that come into our Surrey-based wildlife hospital are treated and rehabilitated completely free of charge. Our aim is to return every animal that is capable of surviving, back to its natural environment. We are not species specific and will treat any form of British wildlife.
There are several ways to become involved with the Wildlife Aid Foundation (WAF), one of which is to have a look at – and becoming involved in – some of our active animal care campaigns, under the Get Involved tab. One such campaign is focused on the ever-decreasing hedgehog population, “Saving Harry”.
Another way to help the Wildlife Aid Foundation (WAF) is by joining our team, by either volunteering or applying for a job. Working at the centre can be incredibly rewarding and we are always in need of new volunteers. You can see some of the amazing people who work with us, already, below. Be sure to visit our Volunteers’ page and working for WAF page.
Finally, one of the most important ways that you can contribute to the animals’ welfare is by visiting our adoption pages to adopt an animal, such as a fox, hedgehog or badger. The cost of each adoption goes directly towards the care of our patients, whether by way of specialist medicines or life-saving surgeries.
Here at the Wildlife Aid Foundation (WAF), we do not believe that it is right to keep any wild animal in captivity, so, if, despite our every effort, an animal cannot be returned to the wild to live a full and healthy life, we will afford that animal the dignity of a peaceful and pain-free death in a warm and comfortable environment. Every day, however, the care and dedication of our volunteers allows us to see remarkable recoveries that, otherwise, would not have been possible.
