Secret World have been using Brinsea incubators for many years as Laura Benfield says, 'We see over 5,000 casualties a year and deal with all species of wildlife from mice to deer, owls to badgers. 
Many of our casualties require more intensive care which is where the TLC incubators come in and are vital to the work we do.'
Pricklebums' is a home-run, self-funded wildlife rescue run by Ailie Hill. 'We have fund-raised intensively to obtain two TLC-40 Eco intensive care units because they are necessary to our work. We fundraised via a Just Giving page, we did lots of fundraising events and several of our Facebook page supporters went 'sweet free' for March to help us to raise money!'
'What a revelation in care our TLC incubator has been. How did we ever
get by without one? It has been in use every day since it was unpackaged. Literally within an hour of it arriving and being set up we had a sick hedgehog arrive and we put the incubator to use. Thank you Brinsea – literally lifesaving.'

'Brinsea's Vetario intensive care unit is easy to use and set up, temperatures can be set as required and the humidity can be regulated particularly to our exotics. The size of the unit can accommodate a range of species and it has proved easy to clean and maintain. We have found the intensive care unit to be a fantastic piece of equipment which we use on a daily basis.' 
Shaun Moore is a veterinary surgeon working at the state of the art Veterinary Hospital in Heavitree. 'From the moment we removed the packaging we could appreciate the quality and design of Brinsea incubators. With Brinsea there is clearly no compromise on quality of product or service. We would not
consider using any other product.'
'The Brinsea TLC intensive care incubators are an essential part of the equipment required to run the wildlife centre and are used for a variety of species. They are easy to clean and disinfect between casualties. The digital temperature control is excellent and combined with the air circulation allows easy and accurate control of the internal environment.'

‘I discovered the fabulous Brinsea TLC when struggling to keep sick and injured Microbats in optimal recovery temperature and humidity which no
other equipment I was using at the time provided for these special, gentle mammals. The Microbats just love the warmth and get far less stressed...'
'We take in 700+ wild hedgehogs each year. Knowing that we were heading towards our busy season, funding was sought and obtained for two brand new TLC-50 Advance Intensive Care units. From the moment they arrived they were a hit. The volunteers love the ease of cleaning and deep sterilising them.'
'The Brinsea TLC Incubators are a lifeline for casualties that arrive cold and dehydrated. With controlled temperatures, animals can be safely housed at a constant temperature through the night. The different sizes mean that any kind of wildlife can be supported ranging from gardens birds to an adult badger or fox.'

'The TLC intensive care units that we have are vital to our work. We take in many orphaned animals from hedgehogs and foxes to tiny baby birds. Without our help these babies would not survive on their own. These systems are brilliant as they keep the animals at a constant temperature. We use them for most species that come in - even tiny fawns!' 
A Sumatran laughing thrush chick has been hand-reared around the clock by keepers at Bristol Zoo after its mother abandoned her nest. Curator of birds, Trevor Franks, said: ‘This is  an endangered species so every chick counts - it was an easy decision to rescue the egg and do everything we could to ensure the survival of the chick.’
'We were very excited to get a delivery of a TLC-50 incubator from Brinsea.This incubator has been a godsend to my rescue. I am really very pleased with the TLC, it came into its own when the postman bought a soaking wet baby Tawny Owl to me early one morning, putting it in the TLC instead of using a heat mat worked so much better.'

'Since they arrived we have been delighted with the TLC's. They are just the right size and don’t take up too much space. If you have a small shed like ours this is an important consideration. They are so easy to clean, which is also important as hedgehogs are very messy creatures. We are now fundraising for another one!'
'It has been an absolute godsend, The incubator is just perfect and I have no
idea how we ever managed without it now. The rescue would like to say a
huge thank you to the amazing donor
and to Brinsea for their very efficient ordering and delivery of a wonderful
life-saving product.'

'We were apprehensive initially about using the TLC-40 wondering if we’d got the temperature right for them, but once we saw the hogs putting on weight and thriving it was a relief. Once these hoglets started lapping for themselves they could then be moved out of the incubator into a normal cage with a heatpad.'

'The TLC-50 has many features that make it ideal for caring for animals in need. Especially important to us is evenly distributed heat alongside the accurate temperature control. We regularly get many orphaned baby birds and it is vital that all the chicks in the unit are kept at the temperature needed. These units are simple to take apart and scrub clean'
'We find the TLC's so easy to clean and sterilise, giving controlled heat and humidity. Also a nebulizer can be used in conjunction with the units aiding hedgehogs with severe respiratory problems such as pneumonia. Having a Perspex door means that frequent observations are allowed without causing disturbance and stress.' 
'The older TLC-4 incubator and the new TLC-50s are absolutely vital as part of our captive breeding program. They provide a suitable substitute environment to successfully raise chicks for release into the wild to restore declining numbers of the endangered Kārearea or reintroduce into areas where the Kārearea population is currently extinct.'

'The TLC-50 Intensive care units are vital to our work. Our first one was purchased a couple of years ago and it quickly become apparent how vital it was when we admitted the tiny baby birds which struggle to maintain temperature. The survival rate for these tiny birds was much better when using the incubator. In the summer months it was always full of little nests of all types of baby birds!'
Exmoor Zoo now has to be one of the top 5 bird zoo collections left in the UK and Brinsea equipment gave the zoo
the first UK breeding opportunity for
the Southern Bald Ibis. Head Keeper, Mr Derek Gibson, is very pleased with the new TLC.  He feels it has already paid for itself with a range of ‘patients’ at the zoo.
They now plan to  buy another one
or two next year.
'In the autumn we take in between 200 and 300 'autumn juvenile' hedgehogs that need us to care for them throughout the cold winter months. Without our help these little hoggies simply wouldn't survive as they are too small to hibernate.  We recently had over 70 hedgehogs in care and every single one of our 14 TLC machines had tiny hoglets in them that were born too late in the year.'
