Brent Lodge Bird & Wildlife Trust

Wildlife Hospital, Chichester, West Sussex

Brent Lodge Bird & Wildlife Trust is a wildlife hospital based in West Sussex. We are a voluntary organisation that has been treating and rehabilitating injured, sick and orphaned wildlife for over 40 years. We receive over 3,000 patients each year.

We invite you to watch our short informational video above (tap it to play) for more information. Further details about the organisation are also available on our About Us page.

Urgent Winter Wishlist

During the Winter season 95% of the patients that arive at Brent Lodge are hedgehogs, many are either too small (under 600g) or too sick to survive the cold months ahead.

By the end of the season we could have cared for up to 350 hedgehogs, as you can imagine they eat us out of house and home.

There are many ways you can help us get through the Winter months just by kindly donating some basic necessities.

On average at the peak we get through up to 100 tins of cat/dog food a day……yes a day, so by kindly donating tins of pet food (meat based preferably not fish) you can help the hedgehogs build up their strength.

We also get through 1000’s of newspaper pages during Winter, not only do the hedgehogs need a bit of bed time reading but we use strips of newspaper to line the cages. This helps to keep the hoglets warm, safe and cosy, which will aid their recovery.

Alternatively you can kindly make a donation online by clicking on the ‘Donate’ button for us to purchase some items on your behalf.

If you think you can help us by providing simple necessities such as food and newspapers, your generosity will be much appreciated!!

Thank you in advance.        

  (This supply of newspapers will only last 3-5 weeks)   (We can get through 100 tins a day)

Approval for new hospital re-development

We are really pleased to say that we received confirmation that our plans were successful and given permission to go ahead with the site re-build.

The re-build is required due to the ever-increasing number and variety of patients we are treating each year, recently we had to turn patients away due to lack of space which is not what we like to do. We are just simply running out of room to safely rehabilitate patients and having to ‘house’ birds and mammals in the same area meaning some animals are located too close to their natural predators, which is not ideal. Much of the hospital was built in the 1980s on a shoestring budget, so the buildings are no longer fit for purpose and is not an ideal working environment for staff and volunteers.

As well as a new hospital we also have plans to build several new outside enclosures, an education room and a reception area. The redevelopment will be staged in five phases, with a target to complete the final build of the hospital within three years. As a relatively small organisation we are limited to generous voluntary funds, so the success of our project is determined by increased funding from the community.

PayPal

We are delighted to say we’ve now added Paypal as a payment function, with all the benefits of shopping with Paypal as a payment option on the Brent Lodge online shop checkout. Quick, easy and simple to use, using the PayPal function takes under a minute. So why not treat yourself.

Thank you to everyone who voted for us

We were really lucky and humbled to receive the Hero to Animal award presented to us by Fred Dineage at the Observer Community Awards. Receiving this award means so much to us and we would like to thank everyone who voted for us.

Brent Lodge Wildlife Winter Wonderland a great success!

Thank you for all of your support at our Brent Lodge Wildlife Winter Wonderland on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November.

It was a great success and enjoyed by all, helping to raise over £6,500 towards the care and treatment we provide our patients.

“Thank you for organising a wonderful event; we’ll certainly be visiting again although I do tend to take newspapers etc to the shop in Havant as much closer. Good luck with all your new initiatives”

It was our first visit today as we’re from Kent but have family in Selsey. What a wonderful place. We really enjoyed it , & we picked up a few Xmas presents from the stalls. Everyone was so friendly & we can’t wait to come back again”

“We had a lovely day at the wildlife hospital . Everyone very friendly love the cakes & coffee. Great atmosphere well done to all the volunteers.”

Thank you everyone for your support, we look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Our Hazel Dormouse is still doing well! She's sleeping a lot though, and because of this she isn't losing the last 4 grams she needs in order to be released. So she will stay with us a while longer. ... See more

This little guy came to us as he'd fallen out of his nest, he's in an incubator and feeding himself. He just needs to get bigger and stronger before being moved to a bigger aviary, then released.
