HART Wildlife Rescue Charity Profile
HART Wildlife Rescue is a registered charity who runs a wildlife hospital in North East Hampshire, providing a rescue, treatment and rehabilitation service for wildlife from all over Hampshire and surrounding counties. HART also gives 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. HART is run entirely on donations.
There is no doubt that without HARTís help, many injured, sick or abandoned wild animals would suffer long and painful deaths, or would be put to sleep unnecessarily. Happily, over half make a full recovery and so can be returned to the wild.
HART Wildlife Rescue was founded in early 1996 by June and Bob Gibbs at their home in Overton as a result
of a request from an RSPCA officer to overwinter some hedgehogs at Dellands. Originally known as the Hampshire Animal Rescue Team, the service HART offers has constantly needed to change and grow as more and more casualties are brought to us.
The hospital deals with around a thousand casualties every year and has just moved to new purpose-built premises near Medstead in North East Hampshire, with excellent modern treatment and rehabilitation facilities. We have an animal ambulance to rescue and transport casualties. We also have two charity shops, one in Alton and one in Andover.
HART Wildlife Rescue Volunteer Information
We are now fund-raising to further develop our outside facilities for large mammals, water birds and birds of prey, and to build a study centre so we can expand our educational services.
Please help us if you can by making a donation and giving our wildlife a helping hand, or by assisting on a voluntary basis. There are further details on this website of the many ways you can both support HART and get involved.
