A: We can help some people who are on certain means tested benefits with financial assistance towards vet costs. This is usually a 3rd of the cost up to £60 inform of a voucher which can be redeemed at local veterinary practices. But you must contact us BEFORE you visit the vets to check if you are entitled. If somebody with financial difficulties has very large vets bills and is struggling, there are other animal welfare organisations who may be able to help.
A: We advise that you try and rehome the pet yourself. Try asking friends, family, work mates and posting adverts in the local community. If this approach doesn't bring any success then you should call the animal centre on 01233 646855 for more advice.
A: Most cats are bold and will go to a perfect strangers house if there’s a chance of a slap up meal! We advise people NOT to encourage cats that do not belong to them, because they will continue to come back for more. Once you have fed a cat on a regular basis you become technically responsible for that animal. If you have concerns about the cat call 03001234999 for advice.
A: No., Stray dogs are the responsibility of the local council. We advise you contact your local authority and report the stray dog to them.
