Animal charity in cash windfall
AN animal rescue centre is celebrating after being given a £2,500 donation to rehome more abandoned pets.
Angels Rescue UK, based in Macclesfield, was awarded £2,500 by Support Adoption For Pets to help with the care they offer to the animals prior to rehoming.
The rescue takes in dogs and cats but their main focus is the rehoming of horses.
All cats and dogs are neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and treated for fleas and worms whilst the male horses are neutered before being re-homed.
As well as re-homing pets the charity provides support to those that have gone through physical, emotional and mental trauma.
The charity applied for the grant to help with their vet bills which are their greatest expense.
Amy Wilson, charity manager at Support Adoption For Pets, said: “It gives us great pleasure to work alongside such a dedicated team of volunteers and we are delighted to offer our support to the charity.”
Support Adoption For Pets is an charity established by Pets at Home in 2006. Since then it has helped over 950 re-homing centres and animal welfare organisations across the UK. In addition to its fundraising work it also runs dedicated adoption centres in more than 370 Pets at Home stores.
Angels Rescue, set up 20 years ago, rehabilitates and rehomes abused, neglected and abandoned animals.
It is run by Angela Leach and her daughter Emma Ryder.
The horses it keeps are split over a number of sites including stables at Bollington, a home on Withinlee Road in Prestbury, a field in Gawsworth and at Adlington Manor Nursing Home.
Last October the charity’s new stables on Whirley Road were destroyed by a storm.
Four rescue horses were left homeless but luckily managed to escape without injury.
The charity launched an appeal to replace the stables.
