Burton Wildlife Rescue and The Linjoy Sanctuary is a 24 hour emergency rescue service for British wildlife and poultry/waterfowl in the UK.  We are a recognised charity with the HMRC ref XT15867 and run entirely on public donations.  We operate from two sites - Burton on Trent and Etwall - and take in wildlife from the midlands and other areas in an emergency.  

We take ALL species of wildlife regardless of conservational status and aim to rehabilitate and return to the wild.  Where this is not possible we offer sanctuary to those animals that can live happily in captivity with a good quality of life.

 Bringing in an injured animal? Please consider giving a donation. As a private charity we receive no government or corporate funding or grants.  It costs us approx £1500 a month to operate the rescue.

 If you are requesting a call out to collect an animal such as a bird, we may ask you to contribute to the fuel if the situation is not an emergency or an animal that is requiring capture/rescue from its surroundings.

Please call before bringing an injured animal.  Injured animals and donations can be dropped off at the following address.

NOTE: Due to the nature of our work, we are not open to the public and visits to the sanctuary are strictly by appointment only.
