Animal rescues

We have a specialist team for large animal rescues, these most frequently include cows, horses and sheep. 

We also get 999 calls relating to smaller animals which may be in trouble such as birds trapped in netting. 

Getting advice

We ask that members of the public call wildlife or animal charities first for advice as they are the experts and may be able to assist. If we are needed, we can be contacted and we will assess the situation.  

We take into account whether the animals are trapped at height or are in inaccessible areas, and whether there is a risk that a member of the public will put themselves in danger to reach them.
