The charity was set up by Samantha Bedford in 2004 and is run by a team of volunteers and funded by public donations.

Ms Bedford said: “We’re really just about giving local sick, injured or orphaned wildlife a chance to get back out into the wild where they belong.

“Almost all of our casualties have had some adverse interaction with humans, road traffic accidents, window strikes, pet attacks and sometimes even human cruelty, so we feel it’s right for us to also be here to help them recover from those adverse interactions.”

The team converted a garage, to create treatment rooms, at her Houghton regis home.

She said: “To be honest we could do with it being about ten times bigger but we cope.

“We provide somewhere for the public and also the RSPCA and local veterinary practices to bring wild animals so that they can receive treatment, where possible, and return to their natural environment as quickly as possible.”
