Funding needed – Human welfare – wer’e not just animals
If only we could get funding to keep going – in times like this – rescues are needed more than ever. Here’s our Facebook page for last night and there are about 5 calls missing from this list just for the 1 day.
If anyone can think of how we can get Grant or Big Lottery funding – to support these people – I would love to hear from you.
“The phone calls that come through on our rescue mobile get more and more each day. I bet no other person has to handle calls from so many people in a day totally in crisis and crying than I have to answer. Just a few of todays calls are:-
1. Lady severely poorly, hubby looking after 4 children and an ill parent, dog too strong and knocking them over small back yard – can’t cope. Large 3 yr old mastiff x needs a home.
2. Lady broken her ankle, cant handle her 11 yr old ridgeback as her bones are frail – can’t afford boarding or transport and doesn’t know what to do.
3. Lady having to give away her cat as hubby doesn’t like the cat and she’s pregnant – gotta get rid of the cat.
4. Vets have had to take in a large bull breed who is adorable, they had to remove his leg a few weeks ago, now owner going to prison and can’t keep the dog – he’s nowhere for it to go. Healthy and lovely facing being put to sleep as no room.
5. Lady whose son has separated from partner, ended up with a cat he can’t keep in his home, cat has literally nowhere to go.
6. Lady desperate to find a home for a cat that she’s been looking after but her cats don’t like it and they are fighting.
7. The pound called- they are full again with no spaces for today’s dumped dogs.
8. Call from a lady who’s dog we rehomed for them when its owner died.
9. Lady called to say the previous owners of her house left behind 2 cats that are trying to get in her house and her daughter is allergic to cats. Its pitiful to hear their please.
I can’t remember any more, but the phone never stops ringing – that along with looking after the dogs we have in care and trying to sort out all their health and behaviour issues – and all day spent trying to think of ways how we can raise money to keep going – doesn’t bade well for the future of us or of the pets in need.
On that sad note, I will say goodnight and lets hope tomorrow, we get a donation in to keep us going but even that – still can’t cope to help all these people and their pets in genuine need.”
