It is with sadness that Rain Rescue has decided to close its charity shop premises at Northern Avenue, Arbourthorne. We would like to begin this announcement by thanking every single person involved in making it a huge success across the years and for the lives that have been saved thanks to to the much needed funds it provided.
Recently we have been looking at our retail operation and were beginning to consider a change of premises to allow our retail operation to grow - with some exciting opportunities on the horizon. This decision has now been brought forward in light of a number of recent incidents that means we feel we can no longer provide a safe working environment for our staff and volunteers. Our work in rescue continues to be as needed as ever and funds are always desperately needed but the welfare of the people involved in our charity is just as important to us - it is both our moral and legal duty to ensure they are safe. The shop will now remain closed.
Rain Rescue continues to be dedicated to saving the lives of dogs and cats in crisis and finding them loving new homes. We will continue to raise much needed funds for this work in many ways and hope that our volunteers, customers and supporters will continue to support us in this.
Donations of goods are still welcome and gratefully received at our rescue centre premises but please do email ahead to arrange a drop off time.
Thank you again,
The Management and Trustees of
