Hi folks, this is Team WAR here.
We wanted to give an update on the current procedures of our rescue, with the recent news being a huge impact everywhere in the world right now.
With the current situation escalating and a great deal of uncertainty regarding the future, we're changing the way the rescue operates for the foreseeable future. Obviously, the health and safety of the WAR team comes first at all times. The majority of the rescue team has other commitments as well families, jobs etc.
What this means for Wallington Animal Rescue
As much as we desperately need to rehome the rescues in our care, with immediate effect as of 18/03/2020, we'll be suspending all home checks.
We'll only be responding to emergency call outs via the rescue phone and we won't be dealing with any general enquiries, unless via email or social media.
We've seen an increase in phone calls this week from people looking to rehome animals for various 'reasons'. We are a rescue; we DO NOT offer a rehoming service.
We need to prioritise both our time and funding at the moment, so please help support us whether it be via donations or just general patience and understanding.
Obviously, as things change in the coming days, weeks and months, we will adapt as well.
If you need our help in an animal emergency...
Please call us if it is an emergency. It is the quickest way to get in touch.
However, if your query is not an animal in danger or considered urgent, please help up by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, you can fill in one of our forms or message us on Facebook.
We appreciate your understanding and wish the best to everyone. We're all in this together, and we'll get through it. So please stay safe and look out for each other.
Thank you, Team WAR.
