West Hatch Wildlife Centre

West Hatch wildlife centre in Taunton, Somerset treats thousands of animals from the far South West, the West Country and southern England every year.

The veterinary staff are complemented by experts in animal husbandry and rehabilitation, enabling the highest standards of treatment and care.

During the busy summer months, our staff are supported by tireless and committed volunteers – we just couldn’t survive without them!

Bringing an injured animal to the centre

The centre is open for admission of wildlife casualties 365 days a year from 8am - 9pm.
Out of hours, please call the 24-hour cruelty line: 0300 1234 999.

Visiting West Hatch

Because the welfare of the animals is our priority, we can’t allow the public to tour the centre as too much human contact can prevent animals from making a full recovery. However, supervised visits for vocational courses or groups may be possible. These need to be booked in advance.
