New Update on COVID -19
Dearest supporters, it’s been several long weeks since we had to close our doors to help stop the spread of the Coronavirus and ensure the safety of our visitors, volunteers, staff and animals. We continue to be touched and overwhelmed by the incredible support we have received during this time, especially towards our Urgent Appeal. Without these acts of kindness and goodwill we wouldn’t be able to continue to care for the animals that need us, so from the bottom of our hearts, thank you.
We know many of you are eagerly waiting for us to reopen so you can offer our animals homes, volunteer for us, make physical donations, and more. At the moment our ‘top dogs’ are thinking hard on what the future looks like for Bristol A.R.C. and how we can continue to help our animals, while keeping everyone safe.
However, for the time being, despite lock down restrictions easing slightly across the country we will continue to remain closed to the public. We have no current plans to alter the changes we’ve put in place to our services until we feel it is completely safe to do so.
As soon as we make any changes, and of course as soon as we reopen our adoption applications, updates will be provided on our website, posted across all our social media channels and those signed up to receive our latest news, events and information will receive a detailed email (if you haven’t already signed up you can do so here… https://rspca-bristol.us4.list-manage.com/subscrib...
We once again want to thank you for your ongoing support during these strange times. With many of our staff furloughed or working from home, this has been a very challenging time for Bristol A.R.C. and we thank you for your patience and bearing with us.
Our fingers and paws are crossed it won’t be too long until it is safe to resume our ‘new’ normal services. Until then, please keep an eye on our website for information and updates.
To help our team on site we are kindly asking (whilst we continue to operate with a limited number of staff on site) for you to refrain from calling our Rehoming Team unless your query is urgent. We are not able to process any new adoptions, or put reservations on animals at this time, we also don’t have the capacity to keep records of those who are interested in our animals, or for those who would like a notification when a particular kind of animal comes into our care. Therefore, please only call when we have announced we are able to process adoptions again.
In the meantime, please take care of yourselves and stay safe. Together we will make it through this.
Love all the humans and animals at Bristol A.R.C.
