Secret World Wildlife Rescue is a fantastic volunteer based rescue charity situated in the Somerset. As the only 24/7 animal rescue charity in the South-West, Secret World has rescued on average 4000 animals per year since it was set up in 1992. They specialise in rescue, rehabilitation and eventual release, and have a team of around 623 volunteers that help out with everything from the day-to-day care of the animals up to going out and rescuing the animals.
Like any charity, Secret World relies on charitable donations to continue running their rescue vehicles and caring for the animals, as the numbers they take on each year can cause a large drain on resources, as well as the employment of trained animal careers and vet nurses with strong commitment to providing medication, veterinary care and time to recover. The fundraisers need to raise a total of £1,000 a day in order to maintain the standards that they work to. (more…)
