We started off treating just a small number of bird casualties nearly 50 years ago but we now have the knowledge and expertise to treat circa 3,500 wildlife casualties and 125 different UK species. The strain of accommodating a huge increase in patients is putting a huge strain on our resources and facilities. The problems we faced this year highlighted the need for us to adapt our services so we can efficiently manage the number and variety of wildlife species we are now faced with.
We are in need of a specially adapted animal transport vehicle to safely transport sick, injured or orphaned wildlife who require veterinary attention to our veterinary clinic, as well as attend local rescues to wildlife casualties. Transportation of animals is an extremely difficult and sensitive task and must be carried out with extreme care in a suitable vehicle. Wild animals do not cope very well in a ‘captive’ environment so ensuring they are kept calm and secure in a controlled environment during transit is important. Fitting the vehicle with specialist units to house travelling patients will help prevent them from falling or escaping from the vehicle and reduce the experience of severe jolts or shaking which could cause further injury or unnecessary suffering.
If you are able to offer support towards our Animal Ambulance appeal to help us adapt our services so we can continue to care for wildlife then we would be grateful. Every species plays an important role in our environment, your support could help facilities like ours help wildlife to continue to play their roles.
