FRESH­FIELDS an­i­mal res­cue sup­port­ers Lita O’Neill and her fi­ancé Steve McLean got mar­ried re­cently and to cel­e­brate their happy day, they asked their friends and fam­ily to do­nate to Fresh­fields An­i­mal Res­cue, in­stead of buy­ing wed­ding presents!

Thie cou­ple raised £900 to help pro­vide food, med­i­cal treat­ment and a safe place to stay at the res­cue and re­hom­ing cen­tre in Ince Blun­dell.

Lita (now Mrs McLean) came down to Fresh­fields to de­liver their do­na­tion in per­son, and to take some pho­tos to show her guests how their money will be chang­ing the lives of abused, aban­doned and un­wanted an­i­mals in Merseyside.

Lita said: “The res­cue is close to our hearts as we have, and still do, res­cue small an­i­mals from the cen­tre.

“To en­able us to care for the an­i­mals, Lyn Gaw­ith, head of the small an­i­mals unit, has been on hand with ad­vice on care, feed­ing and hous­ing.

“Lyn and all the staff go that ex­tra mile for the an­i­mals.

“Some of the an­i­mals have endured cru­elty, abuse, aban­don­ment and the staff show pro­fes­sion­al­ism, kind­ness, ded­i­ca­tion and de­ter­mi­na­tion to find these an­i­mals their for­ever homes.

“I hope our ges­ture en­cour­ages more peo­ple to do­nate, adopt or even spare some time to help out at fundrais­ing events.

“These an­i­mals need us, the res­cue re­lies on peo­ple’s gen­eros­ity and kind­ness to keep fund­ing the cen­tre.”

Naomi Clarke, com­mu­nity fundraiser for Fresh­fields, said: “This is a fan­tas­tic ges­ture by Lita and Steve, and we want to say a big thank you, and to wish them every joy for their fu­ture.

“They have shared their hap­pi­ness with the an­i­mals here at the res­cue cen­tre, and every penny will give new hope and the chance of a brighter fu­ture for them.”

The an­i­mals al­ways need your sup­port, and there are so many cre­ative ways in which you can help!
