Before you get in touch, please take a moment to read the FAQs below. Due to limited resource, we regret we may not be able to respond to enquiries which are covered by the information below.
Unfortunately, no. Since 2020 we have had to move away from hands-one animal rescue work, especially rehoming pets. Due to the ongoing pandemic and our health issues, it is not safe for us to undertake homechecks or have visitors to our house to adopt animals. Please visit the links page to see details of other rescues in the area who may be able to help.

All pigeons we release wear a ring with our phone number on it – 0844 5868 634
If you see one which is happy and healthy and living their life, there’s no need to do anything. We always appreciate ‘sightings’ though. If you can take a picture, that’s perfect, otherwise you can email us a description of the bird, location, and colour/position of rings e.g. a blue bar in Carshalton Ponds with a green ring on their right leg.
If the pigeon is unwell or injured we will ALWAYS take them back here for care, regardless of any other restrictions on our intake. Please call the phone number on the ring and follow the instructions or email us.
Unfortunately our pigeon space is now full. To find help with pigeons and other wild animals please visit helpwildlife.co.uk
We are a very small rescue run from our home. We don’t employ any staff and we do not have a suitable environment for work experience/DoE etc.
We’d encourage you to support a more active rescue from our links page where possible. We do have some permanent resident animals (pigeons and degus) so we are grateful for donations of the following where other rescues can’t use them
- chinchilla/degu/pigeon food
- paper or cardboard bedding materials, newspaper and shredded paper
- small towels such as those up to hand towel size
We are currently unable to use donated cages, wheels etc as well as other types of food and bedding (such as sawdust or woodshavings).
We do have a phone number – 0844 5868 634 – but you’ll find the answering service refers you back to this website. This is simply because we have very limited time to take calls and the answer to most questions can be found on this website. If you have a question not covered here, please send us an email (see ‘I’d like to contact you about something else’ below).
As we operate from our private home, our address is only given out on a need to know basis. This is to avoid animals being abandoned on our doorstep. If you need our address, please contact us by email first.
