***MANGE TREATMENT***
Do you know of a fox with mange? If so, we can send you tablets to help treat it. Left unattended, the mange will become infected and the fox will die. By sending us just FIVE POUNDS, we can send you a proven homeopathic treatment for the fox. For ways to send us money, please click here.

As you may be aware, we have had to cut down our opening hours dramatically, in response to the financial climate, and lack of volunteers. This has not, however, stopped the number of animals which we have been caring for. We are receving anywhere up to 10 injured animals a day, with 5 animals per day being the average. Sorry the website has not been kept up to date, but our limited time has been put into other efforts.
