ELIKE nothing better seeing an animal go to a good home. Preferably the quicker the better.
While we, of course, love all the creatures for the time they are with us, and give them the best care and treatment we can, it all costs money and they are far better in a loving home for the rest of their days than stuck marking time with us.
All our animals are special and happily the majority, after receiving veterinary care, neutering, flea treatment, microchipping, lots of love and any rehabilitation time they may need, go on to be adopted and start a new life in their carefully chosen ‘forever’ homes. However, some extra special cases need that bit more.
Surgery is costly but vital to give them any chance of a future and funding of ongoing treatment for uninsurable chronic health conditions is a big drain on our bank account.
And specialist foster homes and our commitment to care for life, because of serious emotional, physical or medical problems, requires a lot of resources.
Thanks to your support, every year our self-funded branch helps more than 10,000 local animals in need, including many who sadly find themselves homeless through no fault of their own.
