A further update to all our supporters
Statement 26/03/2020 - COVID-19
Please know that we are doing everything we can to protect our staff and volunteers during these uncertain times, their safety combined with the welfare of our animals remain our absolute priority.
Centres / Shops
Our rescue and rehoming centres are closed to the public for receipt of animals and rehoming for the foreseeable future.
Our charity shops are now also closed and we ask that whilst they are closed, please do not leave any donations outside the shops. If you are able to hang on to these until we reopen we would of course be delighted to accept your donations in the future.
All events up until the end of June have now either been postponed or cancelled. We are going to try to postpone where we can and will provide updates about this on our event page here.
We regret that our boarding facilities are now closed. If you have an emergency boarding query please contact the centre closest to you. All contact details can be found here. We are planning to be able to offer support to Health Service Frontline Staff becoming themselves hospitalised by Covid-19 if they find themselves in a situation where they need to board their pets, and we hope to have an update on this very soon.
We are unable to have volunteers at any of our centres, shops or collecting on behalf of MGAR. Thank you so much to all our wonderful volunteers and we hope to see you all very soon.
We continue to provide the highest levels of care for the animals at our rescue centres. Their welfare is our priority and we continue to give them all the necessary exercise and mental enrichment.
Please follow us on our social media where we will be posting what the animals have been up to over the next few weeks to bring some positivity to your day.
Undoubtedly the Charity’s fundraising will be impacted and we would greatly appreciate anyone who is able to make a donation at this difficult time. Click here.
We hope you, your families, friends and pets remain safe and well.
