Finding Forever Homes

Response to COVID-19



9th April 2021


The safety of MGAR staff remains our priority and we must protect our communities that surround and support us.

With the latest issued Government Guidelines we share the following changes:


 Rescue centre title

  • All adoptions are by appointment only and subject to government guidelines.
  • Emergency welfare cases will be accepted by appointment only.
  • Church Knowle will reopen to visitors on the 22nd of June 

 Boarding title

 Charity shop title

  • We are opening all our Charity Shops on the 12th April 2021 and we look forward to seeing you all again soon. 
  • Despite our best efforts we, unfortunately, continue to have an issue with donations being left outside. Donations that are left outside a closed shop will not be dealt with and it does constitute as fly tipping. The police are aware of the issue.

Volunteer title

  • We are starting to welcome our volunteers back. Please get in touch with your nearest centre/shop for volunteer queries. 

Animal title

  • MGAR continue to provide the highest care for the animals at all our rescue centres.


The pandemic has had a huge impact on the charity being able to raise the vital funds for the rescue animals. If you can, make a donation here.


We hope you, your families, friends and pets stay safe.


Kind regards,  

Geoff Wright, CEO
