Vale Wildlife Hospital & Rehabilitation Centre
Vale Wildlife Hospital & Rehabilitation Centre, located in Beckford between Tewkesbury and Evesham, is one of the UK's largest wildlife hospitals, treating over 7,500 animal casualties annually.
The journey of Vale Wildlife began in 1984 in Cropthorne, Worcestershire, in the family home of the founder, who was inspired to help wildlife after caring for an injured tawny owl. This experience highlighted the plight of wild animals injured, often indirectly, by human activities.
Over the years, the centre has seen many changes, including a move to its current site in 1992. The founder sold their house, bought a mobile home, and invested in land and essential resources to establish the hospital.
Starting from a ploughed field, the site was developed by hand, beginning with a 16' portacabin as the initial treatment centre, which was later replaced by a donated ex-builders workshop.
In the late 1990s, Vale Wildlife Hospital embarked on a significant project to build a new hospital facility, raising over £200,000 for this purpose. In July 2001, they moved into the new building, which has since been at the heart of their rescue and rehabilitation efforts.
The centre has been dedicated to providing care and rehabilitation to a wide range of wildlife, striving to return healthy animals back to their natural habitat.
