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. ❤
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!
- Love from Team WAR x
Hi everyone, hope you are all well in these difficult, confusing times.
We wanted to give an update on what will be happening with our adoptions from today onwards.
With lockdown restrictions easing from the 2nd December, we're aiming to kick start rehoming again prior to Christmas. Our amazing tech and admin team have prepared everything ready for today.
So, from today onwards until further notice...
All the cats, kittens and snakes will be available for adoption via our website.
We urge you to read the full description regarding each furbaby prior to applying.
We don't operate on a first come first served basis. We operate on a most suitable home for each furbaby concerned, so the more information you provide us, the better understanding we will have of your home suitability for the animal you are interested in.
Hello everyone, it's been a while!
Welcome to the November WAR blog, hope you've all been keeping well.
I suppose we should start off with the elephant in the room and talk about what will be happening with WAR with the new COVID-19 restrictions/lockdown starting on Thursday 5th November 2020.
Another wave and another lockdown. We survived the last one so we'll survive this one as well, although to date we've lost over £15000 in fundraisers this year so far. But as of this week, here is where our rescue stands...
We're extremely sorry to have to make this change but it is only temporary. We place staff and client safety as a top priority and in these difficult times, we cannot guarantee the safety of our team or potential adoptees due to the nature of the COVID-19 virus and the risks associated with it. We are truly sorry for this!
Hope everyone is doing well in these, still, confusing and anxious times. We wanted to give you an exciting update in regards to our rescue...
As of 01/07/2020...
We're excited to announce we will be reopening home checks and adoptions for a select few of our lovely rescue animals.
Please note that we will only be accepting applications for the following cats:
Unfortunately, we're unable to accept applications for kittens at this current time, whilst we deal with the current waiting list. So please refrain from apply for the waiting list for a little while, until things have settled a little more. We will keep you all posted!
Snakes and reptiles are open for adoption as normal, but still require homechecks so do get in touch if you'd like to take on any of these beautiful creatures!
Obviously, as things change in the coming weeks, we will adapt as best we can. If you have any questions, please do get in touch. We obviously have to prioritise responding to rescue and assistance requests first, but we're happy to answer any questions when we can!
