We treat many wildlife casualties every year. these include swans, buzzards, kestrels, sparrowhawks, deer, badger, hedgehogs, otters & squirrels amongst others.
Many unfortunately sustain serious injuries which cannot be treated and so we have to put them to sleep. Some however can be treated and released back into the wild thanks to our local rehabilitation centre, The South of Scotland Wildlife Hospital, which is situated in the grounds of Barony College, north of Dumfries.
This registered charity relies very much on the work of a dedicated few people and very little funding. If you wish to support them please call them on 01387 860461 or check out their web site.
So, if you do come across an injured animal or bird - in the first instance please phone the Scottish SPCA who may help with funding treatment of individual cases. They may be contacted by phoning 0870 73 77722.
