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.

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.

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.
