• Adopt an Owl

Owl adoption

There are 5 species of owl in the UK, including the Barn owl, Little owl, Tawny owl, Long-eared owl and Short-eared owl.

Habitat destructions, road traffic accidents (RTAs), and the use of pesticides (the owl's prey consumes vegetation with the pesticide on it and the owl digests the prey), are all threats to wild owl populations.

Since WAF was formed, we have continued to take in orphaned owl chicks and provide them around the clock care to help build their strength for a life in the wild.

What’s included in your owl adoption pack

Not only will you be providing invaluable care and helping countless animals, but you will also receive an exclusive owl adoption pack, including cuddly toy, species brochure, certificate of adoption, photo and more. NOTE: The pack will include either 'The Owl with the Golden Heart' book or 'Wildlife SOS' book, dependent on stock.

How your adoption will help

Owls, with their round heads and large forward-facing eyes, are one of Britain’s most recognisable species.

Each year, at WAF, we receive multiple owlets that have fallen from their nest. These owls stay in our care until they are strong enough to return to the wild. Typically, we will release the owls where they were originally found.

Your adoption will help us to continue to look after the many owls that require our support, each year.

Adoption information

Adoptions are for a period of one year from the date you choose to start. We aim to send all packs within 5 to 7 days of receiving the order.

Please allow up to 7 working days for delivery, or 10 working days during peak season. Please note, all parcels are sent via Royal Mail for international orders. You can adopt an animal for yourself or for someone else.
