[T]he Animals’ Refuge continues have a successful 2016, and has recently helped its 750th animal of the year.

“Mr Squawkypants” (yes that is his actual name), has been living as an outdoor cat for several weeks. With no microchip found upon inspection, and there having been no response to the paper message collar fitted, the charity is now pretty certain that he is a lost cat and needs to come into our care.

“It is great to know that we have been able to help another animal in need within our local community,” says Rachel Griffiths, Chair of Trustees, “It is a great credit to our staff, that their professional approach to animal welfare has helped us reach this fantastic number of animals 2016. Mr Squawkypants sounds quite a character! I know that our team will help him find a new and loving home very soon.” Mr Squawkypants will be looking for new home after the 8th October.

So far this year we have helped 203 dogs, 439 cats, 53 horses and 55 smaller animals and farm animals. Every year we help hundreds of animals in need through our community outreach and rehoming programmes.

Through these programmes we offer pro-active assistance and promote responsible pet ownership through up-to-date advice and education. The service we provide is constantly changing, depending on the needs of the local community, and its animals, at any specific time. We also operate with the aim of being accessible to everyone, allowing us to reach and help the largest number of animals possible.

If you would like to find out more about our work and our exciting plans for the future, please visit www.animalsrefuge.co.uk. We would also like to thank all of the local community for their continued support, this is vital in enabling us to help animals such as Mr Squawkypants.
