Cullompton Wildlife Care Centre has specialised in hand rearing and caring for orphaned and injured wildlife from across Devon for 24 years. Currently we are unable to accept further rescues, but are able to give advice. Although a relatively small centre, several hundred different creatures have been cared for every year including:
  • hedgehogs
  • bats (reg. carer)
  • owls
  • small mammals
  • rabbits
  • leverets
  • ducklings
  • swans
  • fox-cubs
  • squirrels
The Centre started in March 1992 from the home of Doreen & Martin after finding there was little support for orphaned creatures in the area. After a short period of time of taking in casualties from local people & vets, the demand grew from a much wider area with creatures coming from across Devon and Dorset. Wildlife referrals also came from vet practices, in addition to the RSPB and the Wildlife Trust, who do not deal with actual wildlife.
