About the centre

Every year the Scottish SPCA rescues thousands of sick, injured and orphaned wild animals.

We help every kind of wild animal in Scotland and are the only national animal welfare charity which rescues birds.

National Wildlife Rescue Centre

Most of the wild animals we rescue are cared for by our dedicated wildlife team at our National Wildlife Rescue Centre in Clackmannanshire, which has veterinary facilities, seal pools, aviaries, wild mammal enclosures, a stable block for deer casualties and can care for up to 1,000 oiled birds at a time.

From otters, red squirrels and foxes, to seagulls, bats and hedgehogs, we indiscriminately care for all of Scotland’s wild animals, should they need our help.
