Please note - a listing on this site is not an endorsement. Please click on each listing for more information about exact location, contact details and areas of operation. You are strongly advised to check the policies of each organisation before surrendering an animal to them, especially if it is of a species some might misguidedly consider "vermin" eg pigeon, squirrel, mouse or rat.

Location here refers to where the rescue is based, the actual geographical area covered may be significantly larger. We recommend you try all appropriate numbers in your area and in surrounding counties and you can also enter your county into the search facility to view all rescues covering that area.
