Find a rescue

Due to Google Maps now charging for map searches the interactive map is no longer tenable, it was costing us money for you to do searches, we have therefore had to terminate the facility until we have time to switch to an entirely new mapping system.

Check the list of Rescues local to Berkshire below
or use the Help Wildlife map at the end

N.B. Rescues are extremely busy and often unable to answer phones. The places you see on TV with lots of paid staff, running around in vans, are few and far between. Most work out of homes run by a single person with volunteers to help clean and feed. Although some might, please do not expect the rescues below to come out to you, and if they can’t answer the phone, leave a message. If your plans change, let them know so they are not waiting around.
