Who We Are
We are a non profit organisation dedicated to the rescue of grey squirrels. As of the 1st December 2019 the law has changed so that grey squirrels can no longer be released back into the wild.
What this means is that any squirrels found must be kept throughout their adult life requiring much more care, this is where we come in.
Natural England Ref: 2019-100003-SPM-IAS
What We Do
We take in any injured or baby grey squirrels that have been found and make sure they receive the required treatment they need which involves feeding, housing and professional medical care.
Babies require special 24 hour care which includes frequent feeding of formula so that they have the best chance of survival.
Please note that we do not take in pet squirrels.
How It Started
We were called out to a fallen tree whilst on call, after five hours waiting for a tree surgeon we discovered two baby squirrels which we brought home.
Both squirrels needed to be cared for but we found that there was no dedicated rescue for squirrels in our area and so Hitchin Squirrel Rescue was born.
Areas We Cover
Currently we only cover areas in the county of Hertfordshire as shown in the map below, unfortunately we are unable to provide assistance for other areas at this time.
