Animals don't have much. What they do have is a life and they will fight tooth and claw to keep it.

Carers List

Please remember most of these people are home based and not large charities. If a phone is not answered try another one. If you get absolutely no response from any of these numbers (unlikely) use the list on the BHPS web site (link at the bottom of the page), call a vet or the RSPCA. If you have a sick or injured hog, please do not give up, it probably won't last while you decide what to do next.

Rehab Centres

NB: If you run a rescue or rehab for wild animals and would like to be added to this list, let us know via the contact page. Please ensure you supply the name and phone number of the veterinary practice you work with.
