Coronavirus COVID-19 Sanctuary update
We have been listening to the Government’s advice regarding Coronavirus, and working towards a plan of action to let us continue to care for the dogs in our care.
Our Sanctuary and office are closed to the public and we are not able to start the rehoming process for any new adopters. If you have submitted an application, we will contact you as soon as we can, please be patient. The Government restrictions, mean we will be unable to take in dogs. If you need urgent help, please contact us on 01202 875000 and leave a message and your number or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will offer you as much advice and support as we can.
Our staff are continuing to provide the best care for our dogs, while maintaining social distancing. We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to those individuals, who are doing everything they can to make sure our dogs get fed, walked and looked after.
Thank you for all your support.
We have had lots of offers to foster and are trying hard to contact everyone as soon as possible.
We are not taking on any more volunteers following the government guidelines to stay at home.
