Wildlife Aid is a hospital and rehabilitation centre for all British wildlife and was founded by Simon and Jillian Cowell. It achieved charitable status in 1987 and has a fully equipped operating theatre, x-ray facilities and lab and also provides a 24 hour helpline to provide advice with wildlife emergencies nationwide. Wildlife Aid has facilities to care for deer, foxes, badgers, small land mammals, raptors,water birds and native land birds. Trained volunteers can carry out rescues of large mammals and birds and other helpers bring in casualties that members of the public are unable to bring to the Centre. Wildlife Aid also takes wildlife issues into the community with its talks to schools, community groups and businesses in Surrey and surrounding areas.

The Wildlife hospital takes in casualties every day of the year between 9.30 am and 8.30 pm and is manned by trained helpers who can deal with most emergencies. The patients are cared for by voluntary staff who each spend an average of 5 hours every week helping to look after the patients. The Centre is under the supervision of a local vet who makes regular visits, plus several visiting vets who provide additional emergency cover and advice. It is funded entirely by donations from supporters and charitable bodies and from its own fundraising initiatives.

Every year Wildlife Aid takes in several thousand patients and deals with upwards of about 5,000 telephone enquiries from callers in Britain and Europe. It is not normally open to the public but has an annual fund raising Open Day in May/June.

Wildlife Aid is supported by its Members and supporters.
