Coronavirus Response - Appointment Only

Posted March 2020

In order to safeguard our staff, volunteers and members of the public the animal home has decided to move to an appointment only system for the time being. Please do not come to the centre unless you have an appointment.

This will allow us to continue with our regular adoption activity while taking on board the governments suggestions for social distancing. If you would like to adopt an animal you can fill in the forms on our website and a member of our team will get back in touch with you. For everything else please call the centre first on 01904 654949 between 11 and 3.

Our animal residents will continue to require care during the coronavirus outbreak. We are taking a cautious but practical approach to the government guidance to ensure we don't put anyone at unnecessary risk of infection and ensure the home can stay operational for the longest period.

We are currently not aware of any issues relating the delivery of our animal food, but expect this to change in the coming weeks. Food donations are extremely welcome and can be left in the donation box outside the home.

For anyone concerned about looking after their pets during this time the RSPCA have put together the following informations:

Thank you for your understanding and we hope you are all staying safe and well.
