Meet the Animals

The Starlight Trust is an animal welfare and rescue organisation based in Surrey

Current Animals

These are some of animals currently in our care. Apologies – this year has been so busy, it has been impossible to keep the site updated with all the animals we’ve admitted. We hope, early in 2019, to make some changes that will make the site easier to keep updated. Meanwhile, we will at least ensure that pages for animals for rehoming are up to date so visitors know which animals we have for adoption. Currently (21/12/18) we do not have any animals looking for homes since we have been focusing on pigeons the last couple of months. We’ll update once this changes.

The tags below their pictures tell you the current ‘status’ of each animal/group.

In treatment – guests currently receiving extra care such as medication or hand feeding.
In Recovery – guests who have been poorly but are now recovering.
Under Assessment – pets we are getting to know or wildlife we are assessing for release.
Pre-Release – wild guests who are preparing to go back to the wild.
Reserved – pets who are reserved for their new home.
Adoptable – pets who are ready to start their new lives. Could you be their new family?
Permanent Resident – wildlife unable to be released or pets we have decided should stay here due to health or behavioural issues.

Success Stories

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

Stirling and Archer

These boys were handed in as their people weren't able to handle them. After neutering they now have a lovely new home with experienced owners and lots of girlfriends.
Rita

Rita

Rita came to us with a severe virus and badly broken wing. We weren't sure she would survive but felt sure she would be here permanently as her wing was such a mess. To our surprise she made an amazing recovery and has since been returned to the wild.
Harry

Harry

Harry came to us with a swollen wing. Unfortunately he didn't recover the ability to fly but he is a chilled out sort of chap so he now lives in an aviary.
Blue

Blue

Blue was a lost racing pigeon. He wasn't tame so he was rehabilitated with wild pigeons and has since been released.
Spot

Spot

Spot came to us unable to fly. She was treated for coccidiosis and has since been returned to the wild.
Coco

Coco

Coco was advertised free online so we picked her up and found her a lovely new home
Cece

Cece

Cece came to us when the child she was bought for lost interest. She has since found a lovely new home.
Ralph

Ralph

Ralph came to us when his brother died. He hadn't been handled much so was tense and afraid. He was neutered which calmed him considerably and he now lives with some girlfriends.

Martine and Ivan

Martine and Ivan were born in the loft of a house in Wallington. Their habit of stomping about at 5am meant they weren't particularly welcomed so we removed them and advised the householder on preventing future visits. They have since been released.
Arty

Arty

Arty was found with a broken leg. It healed well and he has since been returned to the wild.

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.
