We endeavour to help rescue and help provide shelter, medical care and support for abandoned, abused, injured, lost, sick or neglected birds & animals wherever they may be in the Hartlepool and surrounding area.......We are devoted to the welfare and protection of all small birds and animals in the above circumstances. We do this by supporting members of the public and other bird and animal welfare organisations providing help and support services through a series of working together projects and initiatives.

We promote aversion to cruelty to small birds and animals by providing educational, environmental and training resources to promote  good animal welfare practices and to allow people of all ages to share and take part in this responsibility wherever and whenever possible. 

We help educate ALL members of the community (including those who have disabilities, special needs or learning difficulties), by offering opportunities to enhance their learning, skills and quality of life  through theraputic and stimulating experience methods by interaction with small birds and animals, through the activities of our 'Friends of ClawsnPaws Hartlepool Community Group.

We jointly make a valuable contribution to the bird and animal community, together with our members, partners and associates, by arranging and supporting short or long term care for distressed, abused, ill-treated, injured or sick birds and animals,  and to continue doing so for as long we can provide such support from our donors, fund-raising and grants, helpers, rehomers, rehabbers, foster carers and adoption schemes,  and by sharing and promoting good practice in better care and welfare for all birds and animals and supporting any who are at risk or in immediate danger.

We support a local members 'Friends of ClawsnPaws Hartlepool' Community Group enabling and empowering people to make a real, valuable and responsible contribution to reducing cruelty to birds and animals in and around the Hartlepool and extended Tees Valley areas  and to create opportunities for members of the community to become more involved in raising funds and awareness in providing medication, warmth, food and shelter  for the birds and animals who need help, and learning how to better and promote the social responsibility of how to help look after the welfare and well being of all small birds and animals in and around our communities and neighbourhoods.

* NB: we do not currently directly accommodate cats, dogs or wild birds and wild animals due to our present, insurance, permissions, and working arrangements. We mainly give support, guidance, and help, referring to suitable facilities as appropriate after helping, supporting and advising on any emergency care. We also currently only offer help, guidance, advocacy and support for wildlife ensuring referral to the best professional help wherever possible. We simply endeavour to give a 'helping hand' in many situations and can often direct and advise as to the best local resources available.
