The Riverside Animal Centre is based in Beddington Park, within the London Borough of Sutton. We are here to provide a hospital and rehabilitation service for all species of British Wild mammals and birds, ranging from Foxes, Badgers and Deer through to pigeons, corvids and songbirds. We also act as a reception and triage centre for waterbirds and gulls, prior to passing them on to the Swan Sanctuary at Shepperton.

In addition to our core wildlife work, we also have a small cat rescue unit, which works to help cats in immediate need in our local area. We are always looking for new homes for our cats and more information on our work and the cats available can be found via the Cat Rehoming link at the top of the page.

Our centre is open from 9am in the morning, 7 days a week. Closing times are 9pm for wildlife and 6pm for cats. Where possible, we aim to provide a rescue service for the larger wild animals that require specialist, experienced handling but we do rely upon finders to bring birds and small animals to us as we do not have the resources to collect these.

The centre costs in excess of £250,000 per year to run and we receive no lottery or government funding. Our ability to carry on our work is entirely dependent upon your donations so please, if you can, donate today towards our Spring Appeal via the link below or by sending a cheque to us at the Riverside Animal Centre, Beddington Park, Church Road, Wallington, SM6 7NN. We are a Registered Charity, number 1087273.

Thank You from all at Riverside
