Add a Listing

If you are a rescue, independent rescuer, or wildlife-friendly vet in the UK, we’d love to have you registered in our directory. You’ll need to Register an Account in order to add a listing. You’ll then be able to edit the listing at any time, including setting it as ‘temporarily closed’ if you’re full or need a break. You’ll find guidance on adding, claiming, editing and removing a listing – here.

There are three ‘tiers’ to the directory

1. The public directory/’Rescues’
These rescues are the first results shown to site visitors who search our map.

2. The back-up directory/’Small Rescues’
Contact details are publicly viewable on the site but visitors have to look a bit harder to find these rescues.

3. Community Heroes
Contact details are hidden from the public. Our team will refer people to you if they’ve not been able to find help from the first two tiers of the directory.

The table below provides a rough guide to which tier of the directory your rescue best sits in. *We strongly recommend that any rescue less than 2 years old starts off in tier 2 or 3. Your listing can be moved later on, just let us know if you want to make a change.
