alley Forge Native Wildlife Refuge is entirely on private property and is NOT open to the
general public. We are not a zoo or animal park and rescued wild animals still in our care
are never put on direct public display.
We believe that birds or mammals that are to be returned to the wild, must not be
exposed to unnecessary human contact, so that they do not become unwary of what
unfortunately often remains the greatest danger to them. That’s specifically why we
choose to be here, in such a secluded location with few near neighbours.
Consequently, we do NOT allow unauthorized visitors onto our premises, for security
reasons and for quarantine control purposes.
If you have a rescued wild animal that you might want us to take into care, please
contact us to first confirm that we are able to assist. We have very limited resources and
simply cannot offer a place here for every possible casualty ... often other rehabilitation
facilities may be more suitable for some species, and we can give advice as appropriate.
If we should be in a position to help, invariably WE will arrange to come to YOU ...
or can meet you at an agreed rendezvous point ... so that triage
for each casualty takes place off-site, allowing us to minimize any
risk of introducing diseased animals here, and also to allow a
valued judgement as to where & how appropriate initial
treatment and/or care should occur.
Our first priority must always be to safeguard the well-being
of those birds & mammals already in our care. Unfortunately,
this means that on occasions we may be unable to admit
certain casualties, irrespective of all other factors.
If you are unsure whether or
not any wild animal needs to
be rescued, contact us first
for advice before handling.
We are contactable for
wildlife advice & support
Monday - Friday
0800hrs - 2100hrs.

will report all such incidences to the
police and/or appropriate authority.
