HART Wildlife Rescue is a UK registered charity (#1066760) operating a wildlife hospital in Alton, North East Hampshire, providing a rescue, treatment and rehabilitation service for wildlife from all over Hampshire and surrounding counties. HART also gives professional advice to vets, the RSPCA and members of the public from all over the country, as well as providing talks and work experience opportunities for students.

Please DO NOT bring any animals to the hospital without calling first as we may need to prepare for the animal or can advise you of an alternative option if that would be better for the animal, such as a nearer centre. Sometimes animals which appear to need help are in fact fine, and we can give advice in these circumstances to avoid taking an animal from the wild if it is not necessary. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a collection service.

Telephone 01420 562335

This line is manned from 9am – 5pm (September – March) and 7am – 8pm (April – August) and 7 days a week, outside of these hours please dial the emergency number given in the answerphone message which is covered 24 hours a day.
If you have a wildlife emergency and cannot reach us, please contact your local vets out of hours service or the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999 for further advice, you can also go to www.helpwildlife.co.uk to find other local wildlife rescue centres.
