Red squirrel welfare

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.
