For over 25 years Hessilhead has cared for Scotland's injured and orphaned wildlife, aiming to rescue, treat, rehabilitate and release birds and animals back to the wild





Although Hessilhead is a wildlife rescue charity, we occasionally become involved in rescuing abandoned domestic animals. These animals will be listed on this page when ready for rehoming. Please do not contact Hessilhead if you are looking to find a home for a domestic animal/pet, because, as stated above, Hessilhead is a wildlife rescue charity, and there are other specific charities to support domestic animal welfare.


We are caring for a cockatiel that was found in Dalry public park on 17 August 2012. If this could be your cockatiel, please contact us.

Domestic rabbits looking for homes

Hessilhead has been involved in rescuing several abandoned domestic rabbits, some of which have come into the rescue pregnant. It would be nice if the rabbits could be homed in pairs. As these rabbits were dumped, we do not have any details or histories for them. Obviously the new owners will be fully responsible for their care and any associated costs from the time of rehoming. We are keen for these rabbits to be rehomed as soon as possible, to free up space and time for wildlife casualties.

If you can offer a home to any of the above, please contact us.

    Hi! My daughter was at Hesselhead Open Day today & we are interested in the domestic rabbits-we recently lost our much-loved pet rabbit of 5 1/2 years and are looking for a suit able replacement for 3 children aged 5, 8 & 13 to care for & play with. We already have a hutch & run & food & we live on a dairy farm just outside Mauchline. Please can you send us some details of these rabbits if they are available to adopt & what costs are involved to obtain them? Many thanks, Brydie
