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.
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
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.
