Latest Success Stories

Please find below our success stories.

I gave rest and recuperation to a Barn Owl on behalf of Church Walk vets Barrow, when it showed the natural signs of defensive measures towards me.

We took it back to the place it was found and released it back to the wild on behalf of the vet.
