To join a team rescuing red squirrels
Experience caring for sick and injured animals.
Would need quiet home and a spare room or outside space.
It's not for the faint-hearted as often animals have abscesses, horrific wounds or maggots that need removing.
Sometimes very young animals need attention during the night.
