Scotland’s animals need you

Scotland is a beautiful country filled with iconic wildlife but they need your help.

Every year, the Scottish SPCA rescues over 10,000 wild animals and they are taken to our one-of-a-kind wildlife hospital. Our resources are stretched to the limit but the casualties keep coming in and each animal needs specialist treatment and care before they can be released into the wild.

By hosting your wildlife themed fundraiser, you’ll be helping ensure that animals across Scotland can continue to receive the care they need from the Scottish SPCA.

It’s free to sign up, so get ready to Go Wild for Wildlife.

How your support helps

 

By taking part in Go Wild for Wildlife, you will be helping care for animals in Scotland like Honey the badger.

Honey the badger

Honey the badger was found alone on the Cramond promenade in Edinburgh at only five weeks old.

She had a few small injuries so we suspect something dragged her from her sett and away from her family. Honey was very unsteady on her feet and wouldn’t have survived on her own in the wild.

Once she had weaned at 12 weeks old, her diet included scrambled eggs and porridge!

Young badgers are very sociable creatures so they need a lot of stimulation and interaction. Thankfully for Honey, she was joined by two other young badgers and they have become best friends! They spend their days playing and sleeping in the specially designed artificial badger sett at our one-of-a-kind National Wildlife Centre, learning the skills they will need for their eventual release back in to the wild.
