For the attention of members of the public finding injured birds.
Bird Flu/Avian Flu. Updated information as of 1st July 2022
Due to the severity of the bird flu outbreak which is now killing seabirds at an alarming rate, the RSPCA had made the extremely difficult decision not to accept new seabird admissions. This is to protect our other wildlife currently undergoing rehab, as an outbreak in any of our centres would require all birds to be euthanased.
We never want to turn away any animal in need but we must protect our current patients from this highly contagious, incurable and deadly disease.
The National RSPCA animals rescuers are continuing to attend reports of sick and injured birds. Please ring their Helpline 0300 1234999 to report any sick or injured birds. The RSPCA Helpline is receiving unprecedented numbers of calls at the moment so please be patient when you ring. Your call will be answered.
If you find a dead bird please report it to DEFRA on 03459 33 55 77 (Option 7)
Avian flu can be carried by all birds but waterfowl, gulls and birds of prey are the most common species reported.
The current strain of Avian Flu H5N1 has been known to transfer from birds to people. The risk is low but the United Kingdom Health Security Agency is taking the possibility of zoonotic infection seriously and is taking a strict approach to the situation.
As a result of this situation our frontline officers are wearing FFP3 masks, eye protection and gloves when coming into contact with any bird in line with up to date guidance from DEFRA.

Hedgehogs in gardens can be fed on dog food or cat food, but not ones containing fish, and given water to drink until they hibernate. Under no circumstances should they be given milk as this can make them really ill or worse. Piles of fallen leaves and small twigs are ideal for them to hibernate over winter in gardens.
Please do not use netting in your gardens or allotments as hedgehogs get trapped in it. We have had many casualties taken to the vets that have been trapped in netting, some of them in a really bad way and some who despite everyones best efforts have sadly not made it.
Hedgehogs should not normallybe out and about in daylight. It is a sign that they are in trouble. Hedgehogs can be taken to our local vets for checking over and given any necessary treatment. They will then go to Jane, our hedgehog volunteer, or another hedgehog rescue.
Please see our designated hedgehog page for more information.
Every cat that comes into our care has a full health check including being tested for FELV/FIV if appropriate. This is really important and especially so if going into a household that has existing cats. All cats are treated for worms and fleas. Our cats are given treatment for fleas and ticks that last for 3 months. With the exception of young kittens all cats are neutered and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Adopters of young kittens are given a voucher to cover the cost of neutering when the kitten is old enough. All this treatment costs our local branch over £120 for a male cat & £160 for a female. We keep cats in our care for a minimum of 3 weeks until they have been given both vaccinations. It costs £37 a week to board a cat so add that to the veterinary care makes the total cost in excess of £260 even if a cat is lucky enough to find a new home straightaway. Sometimes cats can spend many months in our care before they find their forever home. Many cats also need extra veterinary care, (not many come in in tip top condition!)such as dental treatment.
If you are looking to adopt a cat please look at the lovely pictures on our cats looking for new homes page, download and complete the Perfect Match form or ring 07712459857 for more information on cats and kittens.
