    Claws’n’Paws Hartlepool Presents:-


RECOGNISE -   How do you recognise and read certain situations and what basic equipment do you need? Carriers,Towels,Sheets,Gloves, Vehicle, (Hi-Viz for Traffic) etc;

What would you do to help in these situations.........? 

RESCUE       -    What things do we need to do before and after Rescue? Can we actually make the rescue in the first place? Are we equipped to rehab and treat the bird or animal once rescued? Do we have the right resources? If not we may need to call assistance - say from a more specialised rescue service? If we do make a rescue can it be re-released or rehomed through our fostering and adoption procedures? Other services, especially Vets will certainly need to be involved.

See how this film makes those links with other services and rehabbers.........

RECOVERY   -   What happens after rescue? in the 1st 24/48 Hrs of recovery for a bird or animal rescued. How must the bird or animal feel? Where should it be kept and what basic needs are required in the first 24 Hours to recover from shock etc. A VET visit first is an essential and legal part of of the process.... and what if the bird or animal can't be released or rehomed? Can it be adopted or kept in a safe and secure environment or habitat?.... and for how long ? days...weeks...months ....even years .......The role and importance of Foster Carers ,Rehabbers and Adoption partners is a very essential part of recovery in many situations 

SADLY soon after the above video was released Malone died, of natural causes on 31st May 2016. He was over 6 years old. This film is therefore now an epitaph to his wonderful life. We will always remember him here at Claws'n'Paws Hartlepool. He was much loved by all who met him.

REHABILITATION -  How much time and effort does it take?  The needs of the bird or animal, its habitat and environment come first and are very important to success. Each species has different needs, each have differing types of food, shelter, safety, security, and exercise requirements. Think about how the birds and animals in the following film were helped?...


RELEASE  -     Hard or Soft Release?  The right place to release ? Time of Day ?  Weather considerations? Permissions?  Follow ups ? - Watch this hard release....

 and this release....

RE-EVALUATION - What can we do better with better facilities, more helpers and resources? With bespoke rehabilitation area(s) we can help small birds and animals even more,  giving them the time and care they need before being released or rehomed. Time in care helps them adjust and make new relationships and simply get over their ordeal. Watch this film of how 11 Geese and Ducks, all from separate rescues were fostered, rehabilitated and released to start their new lives together in the outside world,  lending support to each other from the day they were released. Rehabilitation over a period of time helps to prepare birds and animals for their re-release back into the wild and helps them to build new and lasting relationships whilst in you will see.......
