A safe haven for native animals

Our patients recover at our centre after treatment at Wildbase Hospital, they change regularly as they recover and are released back into the wild.

Our resident animals are with us all the time so there is always something to see.

Kōtare Hāwera

I was attacked by a cat.

Where have I come from?
I was found in Hāwera in the Taranaki region

How have the vets helped me?
I was taken to a local vet who was able to get me to Dawne at Whanganui Bird Rescue. From there I was sent to Wildbase Hospital where they found I had sustained multiple bite wounds & had ruptured one of my air sacs. I was placed on cage rest with antibiotics, pain medication & tasty kai. I was released on the 13th of May 2022!
