Officially The Wildlife Haven was founded in 2008. However, the founders, Krista and Lauren Langley began working with wildlife many years before, in the county of Herefordshire.
Most wildlife rescue centres in the UK are run from individual's homes and start by taking the occasional animal, which snowballs into many.
After rescuing and caring for both wild and domestic birds and animals for years, Krista and Lauren saw an article in the newspaper, in 1999, asking for volunteers at a local wildlife sanctuary. Deciding to get in touch with Beryl Bayliss, the founder of the Athene Sanctuary for Wild Birds and Hedgehogs, they began volunteering for her on a regular basis.
