Help us to reduce the amount of unwanted and abandoned animals in our local area and support our local communities.
You have been so supportive of Warrington Animal Welfare but we are asking you again to help to raise £12,000 to set up an on-site neutering clinic, so we can help save more lives.
WAW is a community based, local, independent animal rescue charity and receives no Government funding, we believe that neutering (spaying / castrating) a pet is the best way to protect pets and improve the welfare of the wider cat and dog population.
Each year 1,000s of unwanted cats, dogs and rabbits end of in rescue centres, live miserable lives on the streets or end up suffering a painful death.
The volume or unwanted animals are pushing rescues to breaking point and each year, despite our best efforts it seems to be getting worse kitten season in 2018, was the worse we had seen, despite our on-going efforts to neuter cats across our communities.
Every year we are have litters of kittens born in sheds, skips or backs of abandoned vehicles. Dogs thrown from moving cars and puppies dumped at the side of the road. Every year we are dealing with kittens dumped in carrier bags and left to die this has to stop!
Our goal is to prevent unwanted litters by helping those people who are unable to afford private veterinary fees by opening an on-site neutering clinic.
We are looking to do the project in three phases:
PHASE 1 - setting up the clinic, buying the equipment, creating a clinic space and working with the volunteer vets and vet nurses.
PHASE 2 - pilot the clinic to ensure smooth running, initially looking after animals that come into the care of WAW and working with other small, independent local charities.
PHASE 3 - opening the service up to our local communities, providing a free / low cost neutering service for pets belonging to owners who cannot afford private veterinary fees (this includes owners on benefits, a low income e.g. people working part time, students and pensioners).
Your donation, no matter the amount, would mean a lot to us and the animals is saves from a miserable life.
Your donation will be used to set up the clinic and to help with on-going running costs. As you can imagine, we will need the correct equipment for the job, the list of what we need is extensive but includes; monitoring equipment, anaesthesia, spay kits, ET tubes, operating table, walk on scales, dental machines, dental kits, heat pads, fridge, clippers, trolley, lighting, consumables e.g. and much more!
Your donation will not be used to pay for any salaries, as we have vets and vet nurses who are donating their time for free.
What this would mean to WAW and the local community :
Having the on-site clinic would relived pressure on the charities precious and limited resources saving both time and money. These resources could be used to do work else-where, such as in education on responsible pet ownership in our communities and allowing us to do more rescue and rehome of vulnerable animals.
