How we are managing the COVID-19 outbreak
Last updated: 04/05/2021
This is a live web page, we will continue to update the information here when we have information and updates to share.
With Covid restrictions relaxing we are slowly starting to open up and return to our new normal.
We are remaining to run as a closed site, operating our meet and greets and animal adoptions via our new appointment only system. You can find out more about our adoption process here.
We have remained here throughout this crisis for animals and people in need and we’re still here to help you and animals in need in any way we can. If you have questions or concerns please feel free to call us – visit our contact us page for our opening times and contact numbers.
As always, we thank you so much for your support throughout these challenging times, if you’re able to make a financial contribution today, however large or small, to help us to keep our animals safe, happy and healthy we’d be incredibly grateful. Click here to donate.

of support, including foster homes and donations of items
- We’ve been truly touched by the
offers of support from everyone over the past year, from offers of food and
bedding to foster homes. But for now, we are not asking our supporters to
donate food or other items or to take animals in for fostering. This is very
much a live situation, and this information may change, if and when that does
we will update the information on our website and social media to let you know.
Thank you so much once again to
each and every one of you for thinking of us at this time, it really does mean
a lot to us, for those supporters that wish to make a financial donation, and
are in a position to do so, you can do this by clicking
here. This is the best way to help us right now as we continue
to have our day to day running costs, and anticipate increased costs in the
coming months as more animals than ever need our help and support.
Our staff team:
- We’ve made changes so
that we can protect our front line staff team as best as we can, in order to
continue to look after the animals that need our care.
We have also
implemented the recommendations of Public Health England across our Rescue
Centre. All staff members are being extra diligent in terms of self-care and
personal hygiene, and are encouraged to self-isolate and call 111 if they
experience symptoms, get an alert from their track and trace app, or come into
contact with anyone they know or suspect may have the virus.
- We are slowly starting
to open up and welcome our Volunteers back in ‘waves’ to help us manage this in
the safest way possible. Our Volunteer Coordinator will be in touch with all of
our current volunteers to update you as we are able to bring back different
volunteer roles. Volunteers are able to contact Eddie at any time – just email
firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get right back to you.
Do also keep an eye on
Volunteer page for updates and exciting
new Volunteer roles!
We are very grateful to everyone for their patience and understanding throughout the past year, and appreciate your on-going support as we adjust to our new way of working.
