The objective of the charity is to rescue, treat and rehabilitate all species of wildlife that are found injured, sick or orphaned and return to the wild, wherever possible.  KWRS also advises and educates members of the public, schools, colleges and groups on wildlife, and promotes best practices in countryside living that helps communities, environment and its fauna and flora.  KWRS also helps veterinary professionals who take in wildlife.

In an average year KWRS treat and care for over 600 animals, these range from hedgehogs, foxes and many different species of birds to marine mammals including seals.  The principal aim continues to be for these animals to be released safely back into the wild.

We exist for the benefit of the public to relieve the suffering of wild animals in Kent in need of care and attention and, in particular, to provide and maintain facilities for the rescue, reception, care and treatment of such animals.
