Animals saved – and counting...

About Our Organization

Heal

All of the wildlife we receive are treated with both conventional and homeopathic medicine. By combining these treatments we are able to provide the best possible care with as little stress as possible.

Feed

Both the baby animals and birds are fed scientifically proven formulas that meet all of their nutritional needs. As the wildlife grow and mature natural foods are gradually added to balance and enrich their diet.

Nurture

Not only do we provide for all their physical needs we also work to ensure that the mental and emotional needs of the wildlife are met. Warm, soft fleece beds, toys, hammocks and tunnels, natural branches and loving caretakers create a nurturing environment.

Shelter

The needs of each species varies greatly in terms of their preferred shelters. By understanding the natural history of all the wildlife, we provide housing that they feel safe and happy in.

Release

Although the majority of our time is spent caring for wildlife, our ultimate goal is to release them successfully back into the wild. This requires a careful and long progression of increasingly larger cages until they are ready to be released outside. At NNN we have created a diversity of habitats which allow us to release the majority of wildlife here at our sanctuary.

We Have the Power to Help Wildlife and We’re Doing Something About It

Nottingham Nature Nook has rehabilitated and released thousands of animals since it’s humble beginnings of one person helping one animal.

We continue to discover better ways to care for animals and today, more than 85% of animals such as squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, foxes, woodchucks, moles, raccoons, songbirds, and fawns (before Chronic Wasting Disease prevented their care) are successfully rehabilitated.
