Aww ...Blyth Wildlife Rescue will make sure the big old hedgehog i found being chased by magpies is healthy ... And will eventually return him to the garden. Isn’t that brilliant ... ? Gave ‘em £50 for making me happy. read more
I called BWR this morning about an exhausted Razorbill found on Boulmer beach. Within 5 minutes my call was returned and 15 minutes after that, the bird was collected and taken back to base for some TLC. Very impressive indeed (though I know you can’t always respond so promptly as I’m sure you’re often run off your feet!)read more

Friendly and prompt assistance was received in the matter of a somewhat underweight autumn-juvenile hedgehog which my girlfriend and myself rescued outside our flat last night - two volunteers were able to pop by tonight and collect the hedgehog so that it could get the level of care it needed 😀 as a token of my gratitude I've ordered something from your Amazon Wishlist as a donation for the ongoing cause.read more
My neighbour and I found a 4 to 5 week old hedgehog and my aunty put me in touch with the centre and although I'm in Durham she met me half way so she could take little Harry to get big and strong over the winter ready to return him to me in the Spring for his release! Where would we be without these kind souls, well-done to you all and THANKS xxread more

i contacted Blyrh Wildlife Rescue this morning (5th May 2019) to report an injured fox, having spoken to an extremely kind lady living almost on the site where the poor animal had been struck by a motor vehicle, and who had taken the animal to her home. Within the hour, BWR had collected the fox and have it in their intensive care unit. Many an organisation would probably have written-off the animal or at best, ended its'life humanely. Not so, BWR! They are doing the utmost, and I cannot thank them enough. Our prayers are with the fox and BWR. Stevie Matthewsread more
I was advised to return an orphaned dove to the place it was found even though there was no sign of the nest or parent and cats were congregating. Thankfully I sought advice from experts and the baby who has a vitamin D deficiency is now being properly cared for in Whitby. I could not have submitted the dove to certain death.read more

Fabulous people who are dedicated to helping wildlife 24/7
These guys have been out to us twice now, once to rescue a nest of young blackbirds after the mother was got by a cat, and again tonight to rescue a young wood pigeon with a broken leg. Would recommend, and support as much as you can. Thanks so much!read more
always there and always care.
Came out late one night last week to collect an injured young wood pigeon we found in the garden which had possibly flown into a window or similar. Great service ran by volunteers xread more
These guys are doing an amazing job!
Amazing rescue, who go above and beyond to help every animal handed to them. Wouldn't trust anyone else like I trust Blyth Wildlife and so grateful for the service they provide. They have helped me and my family with many rescued/injured animals over the years. People don't always appreciate how hard they must work to look after all of these animals. Thanks to all involved.read more
Thank you so much for helping with the baby rabbits. I hope they are doing ok.
Amazing, came within 20min to pick up a lone baby hedgehog out in the day 🙂 I'm sure she's/he's under excellent care nowread more
Outstanding service, these guys do a fantastic job out of the goodness of their hearts! I hope the chicken settles in, he she is lucky you came and finally caught after a challenging chase on a busy road! Well done! My son enjoyed helping, I told him he was a hero for helping catch the chicken and he said no the man with the net is the hero haha ( he’s 3 years old ) thanks again!!read more
These people are fabulous, after finding two little hedgehogs at the bottom of garden, we rang for advice, we took advice of setting up of little home for the night to see if mam would come back, but unfortunately she hasn't so these lovely people have taken our little boy and girl in to be cared for and fed up before coming back here to be let back out into the wild. Was nice of the lady to come and meet us to collect them and even told us a little about them which was nice can't wait to see them again x thanks again to all involved xread more

Fantastic group of volunteers doing an amazing job. Keep up the good work guys
Even though we contacted the charity at a very busy time we found that they were extremely efficient, caring and responsive. John turned up at our door to collect the sick animal whereas other organisations and vets etc were reluctant to take him in or prepared to even meet us halfway. Every animal's life matters, they are not expendable and you get the feeling that this organisation truly has this thought as one of their core values. Thank you John.read more
Brilliant quick response to a call about a seagull chick tonight hopefully with a happy ending
Absolutely disgusting service. I contacted the charity in good faith after reading reviews raving about their concern for wildlife and their kind nature. However, I was appauled at the way "John" addressed me over the phone, I called the the charity in distress after witnessing and stopping a young wood pigeon from being brutally attacked in the family garden. The voice on the end of the phone shouted at me for ringing multiple times in a row and not leaving a voicemail. Myself, a 20 year old girl, and the young pigeon were in distress and I considered it to be an emergency, I was in need of emergency advice. Instead of asking the circumstances the man was abrupt and rude not acknowledging the stress I was feeling. I understand there may be other emergencies to attend however each should be dealt with in the same respectful and kind manner. I commend the charity and it's work but feel that they should have more empathy to those who are also trying to help a creature facing an emergency, life or death situation. I am still in shock at the poor pigeons ordeal myself and to be spoken to in such a way has left me disheartened and very upset.The call was made at 8:17 am, Saturday the 26th of May 2018.read more
simply outstanding response to a late night message for advice, turned up to pick the wood pigeon up after giving me advice on how to catch it. very special people who run this establishment. Well done!!read more

Fantastic people who care and save our wildlife xxxx
Just found this link please share �� these guys do a great job!!!
A massive thank you for coming to collect the wee jackdaw last night, who'd fallen down our house cavity. I know you were very busy & it really does show how dedicated you are to helping wildlife that you still found time to call around to collect the little one. If anyone can give him a chance of a life it's you guys. Hopefully the rest of his family will remain safely in the nest up in the roof (tho we're not going to replace the airbrick just yet....just in case!!). Thanks again for your help �read more

Yes a wonderful memory...when a tawny owl fell down our chimney and perched on the ledge inside. Eventually tumbled into our bedroom during the early hours of the morning.
