Success Stories

Meet the animals who we have found new homes or returned to the wild

Homer

Homer had an extremely swollen, infected wing on arrival which we are currently treating. Unfortunately he didn't recover the ability to fly so we found him a permanent home with Burton Wildlife Rescue.
Frank and Ava

Frank and Ava

Frank and Ava were born in a risky situation. We raised them and they have since been returned to the wild.
Franz

Franz

Fran was treated for parasites and a respiratory infection and was then returned to the wild.
Andi

Andi came to us as she was biting in her home. She is definitely a girl who knows her own mind. Happily we were able to find her a home she approved of where she now lives with neutered males.
Eric and Hattie

Eric and Hattie

Eric and Hattie's nest was disturbed by building work. We raised them and they have now been returned to the wild.
Coco and Mumu

Jenny and Julia came to us when their owner passed away. Julia had a large lump which we had removed. They have since found a lovely new home.
Cass and Snow

Cass and Snow

The girls came to us when their tank broke and their owners couldn't afford to replace it. They have now found a lovely new home.
Monster

Monster

Monster had been living alone in a pet shop 'adoption centre'. She has now found a new home with a neutered male for company.
Charlie

Charlie

Charlie left her nest too soon and got caught in a rainstorm. She has now been returned to the wild.
Hooley

Hooley

Hooley broke his leg when he fell out of his nest onto a pavement. He made a full recovery and has since been returned to the wild.
Munch

Munch

Munch was handed in when her cagemate died. She has now found a home with a neutered male degu for company.

In Memory

We work so hard for all our animals but sometimes it’s just not enough. Every loss hurts so we keep their pages up on the website as a tribute to them.
