Thanks for visiting our site

If you have a wildlife casualty, please call or text the charity’s helpline on 07910 643 122 and leave a message. We will try to return your query as soon as possible. Please understand that our limited service is overstretched daily and it is simply not possible to return each and every single call and message sent to us, sometimes amounting to over 30 -50 calls per day in the Summer months. We operate a voicemail service used to triage all the incoming calls. We also work with over 25 veterinary surgeries across several counties – you may wish to contact your local vets for assistance – they will quite likely take in the casualty and refer to us for further care

Since the attacks and subsequent closure of our Main Aviary Site in May 2015, we have limited space and resources to house many patients at any one time.
Currently, BWR has only 3 small aviaries in full operation, which forces us to be selective in the animals we take in.
We are working with other charities both regionwide and nationwide to transfer animals that need larger facilities or more time in rehabilitation.

Since the vandalised Main Aviary Site was demolished, we have been unable to find another new site to construct existing and new aviary buildings for the rehabilitation of our patients.  Therefore, we ask for your respect and understanding of our difficult circumstances.

Please visit our Facebook page for frequent updates and to find out more information about our work, history and other information

For advice and support, you can call our charity’s helpline on 07910 643 122 but please be aware that this service is operated by volunteers and your respect and understanding is appreciated during this difficult time

If you have a severely injured animal in need of URGENT help, you may also contact your nearest Vet or contact the RSPCA for further assistance. We work with over 25 Veterinary Practices throughout Tyneside and Northumberland who regularly refer animals into our care.
