Freshfields Animal Rescue

No Animal Left Behind This Christmas

In this very human crisis animals are being forgotten. We need to be there to aid the increased number of pets and wildlife at our doors this winter. Financial support is nowhere to be seen. Animals fortunes mirror peoples’ fortunes. Their lives depend on our protection. It is not all about us.

  • Animals are members of our families. For many people, pets are vital to their mental health and wellbeing. We have 2 wonderful Freshfields cats, Jackson and Freda. Without financial support, Freshfields cannot continue to support animals still waiting to be adopted. Freshfields do a superb job.

    — Bill Esterston - MP for Sefton Central and Shadow Minister for International Trade

  • You’ve helped us be there for animals in their hour of need for over 40 years. In that time, you’ve given over 90,000 animals a better life and a loving new home. We know you can help us overcome this challenge too. You help us to make sure there is no animal behind, and we will not fail them now.

    — Helen Stanbury, Director of Freshfields Animal Rescue

  • I was diagnosed with PTSD since leaving the army after serving for 15 years in Iraq and Afghanistan. Art therapy helped, but I felt like I didn’t have a main purpose in life. Then I saw Fudge, and just knew I had to adopt her. We saved each other. She brings me joy. I can't imagine life without her.

    — Jay Wheeler, Freshfields Community Ambassador

Situation

We exist to redress the balance resulting from: The destruction of wildlife A lack of respect for animals and the environment Over breeding of pets to make money and meet changing pet fashions Intentional abuse of animals People in crisis through poor mental or physical health, domestic abuse, loss of income or homes, or loss of life, needing rescue services. Maintaining the rescue service during coronavirus with a 50% loss of income and exclusion from grants during a period of increased demand

Solution

We will solve the problem by keeping our doors open and phones manned. This will protect the lives of vulnerable pets and wildlife across the North West. This money will cover essential expenses for care and medical staff and volunteers, heating, medicine, food… and kind company. It will ensure the Freshfields team can continue to go above and beyond to find safe homes for dogs, cats, horses, small animals and protect wild bird and hedgehog animals lives until they can survive their release.
