Your Help Is Gratefully Received

Gentleshaw wildlife centre survives almost entirely on donations from the public, admission and all the profits from the shop sales go towards the upkeep and care of our animals.

Sadly this is not enough as it costs us hundreds of pounds every week for vet bills, food etc. If you would like to make a donation, please send a cheque or postal order to the address in the ‘Contacts’ section of the website, (all donations, however small, are gratefully accepted). Or use the paypal button on the front page.

Alternatively, you can help us by sponsoring any animal or bird from the centre. Visit the 'Adoptions' page for details of cost and what you will receive for your adoption.
Please Note: adopting an animal does not mean you can take it home, but it DOES mean you help to care for its welfare and upkeep, which is very important).

Should you prefer to not make a monetary donation, we always require items to help us maintain the centre. Please contact the centre if you have building / office / groundworks services or materials you are able to donate.

If you require more information on how you can help the centre please contact us.


Please print out this page and indicate your required adoption package.

Send the completed form below, along with a cheque for the appropriate amount, made payable to "Gentleshaw B.O.P Hosp." to the address on our Contacts page.
