Get Well Soon, Kathy

Sending our heartfelt best wishes for a speedy recovery to Kathy over at Meltham Wildlife Rescue in Yorkshire - we all hope you are back home from hospital very soon and able to take up the reigns once more.


In the meantime, the hospitals there are CLOSED to new admittances, so please use our website to help find your nearest alternative rescue centre. Their sanctuary's own answerphone will also give out more local rescue information. Fear not, this is just a temporary measure and the birds etc currently in their care will be well tended to, just that as Kathy does the minute-by-minute intensive care herself, they are preventing any issues whilst she is 'out of action'. We are continuing our own hands-on care and support to them at this time.
