Please remember that Blyth Wildlife Rescue is a small charity with limited resources to deal with all enquiries reported to us. All members are unpaid volunteers and work extremely long hours caring for our patients and keeping the whole system running.
If you have an animal safely contained that is severely injured and in need of urgent help, it may be best for you to take the animal to your local vets for attention.
It is very likely that the vets will then contact us directly and refer the animal to us if it is deemed to be treatable under our care.
However, feel free to contact us directly and we will try to respond to your query as soon as possible.

Photos and Videos can be sent via WhatsApp using 07910 643 122 – you may be asked to provide photos or videos on the triage call to help us make the best informed decision for a wildlife casualty in order to provide correct advice

If you at a location that is remote, hard to get to or with a wildlife casualty that requires specialist handling such as Deer, Badger, Fox or large Seabirds, please remain with the casualty and get in touch – please do not attempt to recover the animal yourself – call 0330 229 17 10 and select OPTION 2
You may also contact us via our Facebook Page, where one of our Page Admins will respond to your query as soon as possible
Please DO NOT repeatedly call the phone line after an initial call unless to provide an important update regarding the animal in question – repeat calls and voicemails simply take up more of our time, block the voicemail mailbox stopping other important messages, leading to an increased workload and longer response times
We now have a dedicated Email address where you can direct your query – someone will try and return your message as soon as possible, but please understand these queries are dealt with as the lowest priority. Please Email firstname.lastname@example.org
In the case of Hedgehogs or any other species that benefit from being returned to exactly where found, we WILL be in touch to arrange this with you should the animal be successfully rehabilitated.
