Tiggywinkles, The Wildlife Hospital Trust, is a specialist hospital. Tiggywinkles is a free wildlife hospital, the busiest and most advanced in the World. Started 1983 by the Stocker family in their back garden, Tiggys has treated over 300,000 patients. Utilising the latest technologies, the best veterinary nurses, and Specialist veterinary surgeons, the hospital gives wildlife the best care, treatment, medicine and love available. Tiggy’s aim is to get everything back to the wild.
Thanks to donations, Tiggy is a free service. The busiest day Tiggy can have over 1,600 patients on site.
All British wild animal casualties brought to the hospital are treated completely free of charge and are released through a controlled programme, back to the wild, when they are fully fit.
Every casualty is given a chance, we only ever use euthanasia as a last resort. Any animal or bird unable to be released back to the wild is maintained at the Hospital, in as natural conditions as possible. Every creature matters.
Veterinary treatment is carried out by an amazing team of highly trained wildlife and veterinary nurses and specialist consultant veterinary surgeons. This enables us to give our patients ground breaking treatment and the best possible care. The veterinary team has pioneered much of the treatment now used for wildlife throughout the World. Tiggywinkles expertise and knowledge on all species is shared globally.
Over the years Tiggywinkles have perfected techniques for hedgehogs, badgers, deer and other species and have a commitment to passing on this information through books, papers, courses and lectures to veterinary schools. The sharing of our treatments and techniques are helping many millions of casualties across the world, most of which are now being looked after thanks to the positive attitude of Tiggywinkles.
