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...
Hi all! We wanted to share an amazing update with you all.
One of our lovely fosterers has been taking care one of our handsome rescue animals; Brandon. When we brought Brandon in, he was in a terrible state and was the most matted cat we'd ever seen!
He had to be clipped under sedation and the vets found all sorts of nasties stuck in his fur... it was really heartbreaking. So we had to give Brandon a full shave and, although he didn't look himself, he certainly felt a lot better than before.
Well, fast forward to May 2020 and now we have an absolute stunner...
Take a look!
We have some very sad news from Tinkers' long term foster family.
This is what they have to say...
"We first met Tinker at WAR HQ. We instantly fell in love with him and had to bring him home, so we did! On the 17th October 2017, Tinker became a part of the clan. Due to him being terminally ill, we were told that he would have around 3 months left.
Fast forward to 2020 and 3 months turned into 2 years and 3 months! Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worst recently though and on the 16th March 2020, we had to say goodbye to Tinks as he passed over the rainbow bridge."
