An­i­mal char­ity in cash wind­fall

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

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.

Con­tact the char­ity via an­gel­san­i­mal­res­ or call 01625 421467 or 07737 126990 to help.
