Although we’re not a rescue organisation, we inevitably take in animals from time to time. If they’re unwell we ask the vet to heal them. And, if we’re too late to help, we ask the vet to give the animal an easy journey out. When they’re well enough we neuter, vaccinate, worm and deflea and they stay with us till we can find a good home for them.
