About Us

Oak and Furrows Wildlife Rescue Centre became a registered charity in 2006 and along with charity status came an increase in calls. As a result Oak and Furrows has had to expand and develop the centre in order to cope with demand.

Annually the centre takes in over 3,000 wildlife casualties and receives between 6 and 7,000 telephone calls for help and advice, all this achieved by a dedicated team of people comprising of staff, volunteers, friends and supporters, without whom it would not be possible.

Oak and Furrows operate a 24 hour Wildlife Rescue Service, 7 days a week, 365 days of the year. The centre relies on donations to survive and does not receive any government funding.

Our aim is to provide care for wild animals in need so that they can be returned to the wild fit and healthy for a second chance. To do this, we are always in need of help. If you'd like to get involved, take a look at our Getting involved and Ways to Donate pages.

Please be aware that due to the nature of our work and the sensitivity of the patients in our care we are not open to the public (other than to deliver wildlife casualties or donations to support our work), visitors are not permitted unless by prior appointment. Call the centre on 01793 751412 if you need to visit for any reason.
