A wildlife rescue group is appealing for help so it can continue its work with animals and birds in and around Raunds.

Feathers and Prickles Wildlife Rescue has various animals and birds in its care, including hedgehogs, pigeons, crows, jackdaws and magpies.

It has been rescuing wildlife for about three years, but the cost of feeding and looking after the animals is becoming too much.

Adie Gudgeon, who is one of the managers for Feathers and Prickles, said: “It is costing us £115 a week just to feed what we have got in at the moment.

“We have about 160 animals.

“We started up around three years ago as no-one else did wildlife rescue in this area.”
While Feathers and Prickles is based in Raunds, Adie said they have travelled as far as St Neots for a rescue.

But without more support, he fears they may have to close their doors for good.

Adie said: “We have closed our doors at the moment because we can’t take any more in.”

Anyone who would like to help or would like more information about the rescue can search for Feathers and Prickles Wildlife Rescue on Facebook.

Donations can be made using a link for their PayPal account which is available on the Facebook page.

Anyone who can donate chicken in jelly or beef in jelly cat food or any bedding for the rescued wildlife can also get in touch via the Facebook page.

Feathers and Prickles can arrange collection of donations if required.
