There are 6 species of deer in the UK. This shy and graceful animal is an important species that contributes positively to our biodiversity.
Sadly, more than 200 are hit by cars in the UK, every day. Many others are injured or caught in man-made objects, such as fencing and netting.
The need for 99% of the Wildlife Aid Foundation’s deer rescues are due to humans. We do all we can to ensure that these beautiful animals can be successfully released back to the wild.
By adopting a deer you will be providing vital support to ensure our rescue team have all the resources required to ensure these animals receive the care and treatment they need.
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 deer at the hospital. Our hope is to help rehabilitate injured animals and then release them into the wild.
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.
