RAIN RESCUE APPEALS TO HELP SICK AND INJURED ANIMALS
Yorkshire based animal welfare charity Rain Rescue are appealing to the kind hearted public to help with their ever growing vet bills treating some of the regions sickest abandoned animals. The charity established in 2002, sees a year on year rise in the number of animals needing to be treated for neglect.
Lauren Sanderson, Deputy Charity Manager says ‘The majority of the animals who come to us have been abandoned on the streets and are in desperate need of medical attention. Our vet bills are around £30,000 each year. We receive no government or lottery funding, without the support of the public we cannot continue.’
Just in the last two weeks the charity has taken in and treated Pops a 15 year old boy, abandoned in the stray kennels in a starved state, Chester another dog with horrific ear and eye infections which have been left untreated, as well as Muffin one of many tiny kittens saved from the streets with horrendous cat flu. All of which will have been suffering and in pain without the treatment they so desperately needed.
In the last 12 months Rain Rescue has rescued and rehomed 453 dogs and cats from crisis situations.
