Registered Charity No
East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (East Sussex WRAS) is an award-winning community charity established in 1996.
The charity has grown from a one-man band to a registered charity with a small fleet of veterinary ambulances and a veterinary hospital capable of caring for around 300 casualties at any one time.
The charity has 5 veterinary ambulances, two technical rescue transits, two response ambulance cars and 1 patient transport vehicle for moving animals to off-site pens or transportation to specialist centres.
Our Veterinary Hospital is registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons as a Veterinary Premises so we can order and hold our own supply of veterinary medicine. This is used by our Care Team and Veterinary Surgeons to provide humane and respectful treat to all wildlife casualties abiding by the Animal Welfare Act.
The charity now deals with around 4-5000 casualties every year.
There is a crisis in East Sussex as more and more rescue organisation close down, meaning our charities workload is every increasing and the demand on our service ever growing. It is difficult to keep up with the demand, but with your help and support we can make this happen and secure the future of our precious local wildlife.
