We wanted to post an update on a rescue that occured today, that has truly warmed our hearts looking at the support and responses.
On a daily basis, our small rescue team here at Wallington Animal Rescue never quite know what to expect or what we're going to get called out to. Today was a prime example of this, and presented a huge challenge for the team though.
Trespawsser on the tracks
On the 20th December 2022 at around 7am, our team was alerted via social media and multiple phonecalls about to a cat hiding in a rescess of the Southbound platform at Wallington Station.
Immediately, our team were concerned for 1) the safety of the curious cat, but 2) due to the fact it's a difficult situation from a safety point of view for our small team; we cannot risk anybody on live tracks and in such a dangerous situation.
What followed over the next few hours was incredible and took up all of our resources...
Just a quick shout out from Team WAR today!
All round a tough day for all the team, we're not out of the woods yet either.
However, we just wanted to say a big thank you to Diana and all the team at Waitrose in Coulsdon for your generous donation today via your community matters scheme.
A rare photo of the bald one smiling as he's presented with a cheque for the amazing amount of £666.66. Thank you Waitrose. ❤
WOW! What a weekend that was!
Sorry about the delay in posting, the team are still recovering! A bit of a long post but stick with it at the good bits are at the end.
The team never envisioned when we started planning this years festival in March, after 18 rotten-months, how good or successful it could or would be. We all still have smiles on our faces after what was a phenomenal two days.
Since it's the last day of the year, we wanted to share some 2020 stats about our rescue.
It goes without saying, this year has been a shock for us all.
We're definitely not the only charity out there that has struggled this year and from the bottom of our hearts, we can't thank you all enough for the support we've received in these difficult times.
Enjoy this little info sheet with some fun (and not so fun...) facts.
If you'd like to give a small donation, link is in the comments!
Bring on 2021!
