A few days ago I announced that my blog will carry an unlimited number of FREE advertisements for wildlife and animal rescues and with readers in more than 80 countries I'm inviting enquiries from anywhere in the world.
I am offering this because there are lots of very small charities, organisations and individuals out there who are working tirelessly on behalf of sick and injured animals and they are doing so on the tiniest of budgets, relying on donations and the generosity of strangers in what are difficult times financially for many people.
So, with that in mind, I am very happy to tell you about two of our first advertisers....
The Nutkin Ward
First, I'd like to introduce you to a wonderful lady by the name of Tess who set up The Nutkin Ward in 2010 in Middleton Cheney, Northamptonshire.
Very quickly she found herself inundated with wildlife casualties in spite of having little room to accommodate them... “I don't think people realize how small I am. Its me, an 8 x 12ft shed and a couple of small aviaries. Overflow can often be found in the bathroom or spare bedroom!”
But even with limited space, last year alone Tess, who is a registered veterinary nurse, admitted more than 400 casualties. And she doesn't discriminate “I will take in and care for any wildlife. I always think it's so strange that people will distinguish between animals that deserve help and those that don't. In my opinion any animal deserves help be it bat, mouse, owl or pigeon.”
With hardly any spare time to fund raise, (as you can imagine looking after so many patients!) Tess nevertheless relies on donations and The Nutkin Ward has an Amazon wish list which can be found by clicking HERE or click on the ad below to visit their Facebook page.
London Wildlife Protection
Our second amazing organisation is London Wildlife Protection who offer a 24/7 rescue service for birds and animals in and around London. They are a volunteer run organisation and endeavour to provide a rescue and ambulance service when possible for all trapped, injured, sick or young birds and they also save eggs and nests. “Our core values are to investigate and increase public awareness of animal abuse, educate the public, protect and promote animal welfare legislation, and offer non-lethal wildlife control. London Wildlife Protection has a no-kill policy which means that we NEVER put down sick, injured or unreleasable animals.”
London Wildlife Protection are a Not For Profit Organisation, and rely solely on donations from the public for provisions of foods and medications.
