Stapeley Grange is one of four RSPCA wildlife centres based in England that supports the rehabilitation of sick, injured, orphaned and confiscated wildlife.
We admit animals from south of the Scottish Border to south of Birmingham and across North Wales. Each year we deal with over 5,500 wildlife and domestic casualties.
Our facilities allow us to rescue, rehabilitate and release almost all species of wildlife (with the exception of seals and deer).
Bringing in wildlife
If you discover an orphaned wild animal always seek advice before disturbing them.
However, if a wild animal has been truly abandoned or injured then we can help.
Stapeley opening hours
Our wildlife centre is open for the admission of wildlife casualties but opening hours depend on the time of year and are subject to change.
- Nov - April: 8am - 8pm
- May - Oct: 8am - 9pm
Out of hours, the best thing to do is call our 24-hour cruelty: 0300 1234 999.
How to contact us
Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre,
Telephone: 0300 123 0722
Unfortunately, because welfare of the animals is our priority, we can’t allow the public to tour the centre or visit any animals. Too much human contact can prevent animals from making a full recovery. However, supervised educational visits to support vocational courses or groups can be booked in advance.
Teamwork at Stapeley Grange
Here at Stapeley our wildlife team of 13 are supported heavily by volunteers and student placements. Together they provide the necessary veterinary and husbandry care for all our admissions.
The way in which we work with our wildlife casualties is based on years of experience, post release monitoring and research.
More than wildlife
Stapeley Grange also has a rehoming cattery that supports our inspectors with cats who have been injured, abandoned, neglected or become the victims of cruelty.
The centre also runs an education programme offering schools and the community an opportunity to learn about wildlife and the environment.
