Wildlife rescue

Every year the Scottish SPCA rescues thousands of sick, injured and orphaned wild animals.

We help every kind of wild animal in Scotland and are the only national animal welfare charity which rescues birds.

National Wildlife Rescue Centre

Most of the wild animals we rescue are cared for by our dedicated wildlife team at our National Wildlife Rescue Centre in Clackmannanshire, which has veterinary facilities, seal pools, aviaries, wild mammal enclosures, a stable block for deer casualties and can care for up to 1,000 oiled birds at a time.

A record year!

In 2014, we cared for over 7,200 wild animals, which was a record! This included rescuing wild garden birds, water birds, birds of prey, seals, red squirrels, badgers, hedgehogs, otters, pine martens, fox cubs and many more wild animals who desperately needed our help.

Please help

You can help us rescue and rehabilitate Scotland's sick, injured and orphaned wildlife and help us build our new wildlife rescue centre by joining the Scottish SPCA by making a monthly donation.
