Be Kind!

So you’re probably wondering what this image is about. That is a photo of the total tally for individual animals for this year so far. The green below is a comparison to the previous year. We are currently sitting at 440 animals helped this year - for many years our numbers have been going down. These past three years they’ve only been growing. And another 6 animals will take us equal with the annual total for last year. We are not a big organisation, we try to help where and when we can. Many organisations will have several zeros on the end of that number. But for us this is double of our total from 2019 (221), and double of 2018 (218). The majority of these numbers are made up of pets whose owners could no longer provide care. With the cost of living rising it’s affecting everyone but we are still limited to who or how we can help. And if you are looking to adopt, or looking to rehome your pet - please be kind to our volunteers who are working around the clock to help ensure the animals get exactly what they need. We may be slow on replying, we may not tell you what you want to hear but we are doing what we can with what we can.

Please remember this when contacting - be kind, be patient and be respectful. You have no idea what our volunteers have gone through that day.
