In 1999 the Charity was given a lease on an area of land in Trent Park, owned by the London Borough of Enfield. Thanks to generous donations from businesses, local residents and charitable trusts, we have slowly been able to create a rehabilitation Centre to house injured patients and provide a permanent home for those creatures who cannot be returned to the wild.
All of the animals at Trent Park Animal Centre are either recovering from injuries and will be released when well enough to survive in the wild. If they cannot be released the centre will provide a safe sanctuary for life. Some have been orphaned, abandoned, or saved from neglectful owners. All of them have been helped in some way by WRAS and they all have a story to tell.
JUST SOME OF OUR WILDLIFE FRIENDS...
