Bat Adoption

There are 18 species of bat in the UK. It is not widely reported, but light pollution is affecting their natural feeding routine.

The bats admitted to our rescue centre have usually either been caught by a predator or disturbed during building work. It’s our duty, as a charity, to save and get them back to the wild.

Bats play an important role in the ecosystem. Many plants depend, partly or wholly, on bats to pollinate their flowers or spread their seeds; they play a vital role in protecting our environment. Therefore, it’s imperative we do everything we can to safely return as many bats as possible, back to the wild.

By adopting a bat you will help us successfully treat and safely return numerous bats back to the wild.

Not only will you be providing invaluable care and helping countless animals, but you will also receive an exclusive adoption pack.

Included in your adoption pack:

  • Species fact sheet
  • Personalised certificate
  • Glossy photo
  • Special 10th anniversary edition of ‘The Owl with the Golden Heart’
  • Cuddly toy

We will also send you a six-month update on how your adoption is supporting wildlife.

You can adopt an animal through our online shop.

How your adoption will help

Your purchase will help with the costs of looking after orphaned or injured bats at the hospital. Our hope is to help rehabilitate injured animals and then release them into the wild.

Adoption information

If you choose a ‘Start Date’ in the future, we will hold your adoption and send it out for that date. If you choose ‘ASAP’, we will send out the pack, straight away. Adoptions are for a period of one year from the date you choose to start.

Please allow up to 7 working days for delivery, or 10 working days during peak season. Please note, all parcels are sent via second class Royal Mail. You can adopt an animal for yourself or for someone else (“Gift Recipient”).

When ordering your adoption, you can choose to have the initial pack sent either to yourself or to the Gift Recipient, but we would like to send the six-month follow-up letter directly to the Gift Recipient, so, please, make sure you include their email address in the Gift Recipient fields.

Please note, we recycle and reuse our packaging materials.
