Urgent appeal! Save Oxfordshire Wildlife Rescue!

Oxfordshire Wildlife Rescue desperately needs your help to survive.

For the last couple of years, we’ve been operating on rented land, and unfortunately, our landlord has given us notice to leave by October 2024, citing uncertainties with the future of the farm. If we don’t find a new home, the reality is that Oxfordshire Wildlife Rescue will probably cease to exist.

OWR is a wildlife conservation charity that rescues, rehabilitates and releases sick, injured and orphaned wild animals throughout Oxfordshire and most of Berkshire, and sometimes even further afield. Thanks to our incredible supporters we’ve grown exponentially since 2017 and now take in around 3000 animals each year.

But to secure the future of OWR and the future of our local wildlife, we need to buy our own land. If we cannot do that then charity will no longer be able to help not just our amazing but threatened wildlife, but the thousands of members of the public who turn to us for help or advice when they find an animal in need. With nowhere to operate from, we will probably have to shut down.

Land is not cheap, especially in the area over which we operate. Please, will you make an urgent donation today to help us purchase land and relocate?

We know times are hard for everyone right now, but if you’re able, please help us find our forever home and save the Rescue. And if you’re unable to donate, please share our campaign far and wide - tell your colleagues and friends and family, share this campaign on social media, or even hold your own fundraising events – every penny will help.

Thank you.


You can make a difference by donating today to Oxfordshire Wildlife Rescue. Covering Oxfordshire and much of Berkshire, OWR is a wildlife conservation charity dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of sick, injured or orphaned British Wildlife. We admit thousands of animals per year, from voles, toads, swifts, garden birds, and hedgehogs by the hundreds, to foxes, owls and deer, most of which are found by concerned members of the public.

All funds raised through this platform will go directly to the #SaveOWR relocation fund.
