Vera

Posted November 28th, 2016 by sarah

Vera is a 1-2 year old neutered female, domestic shorthair cat. Vera came in to the rescue with her two kittens, she had given birth to them at the back of a Southampton care home, the staff advertised her for weeks to try and find a owner but nobody came forward and poor Vera was getting thinner by the day.

Vera is a really loving cat, that is ok with other cats and is fine with older children. I don’t think she has had the greatest start as any sudden movements or load bangs and she will run off and hide, but as soon as all is settled she is back out again looking for cuddles. Absolutely no dogs as she is petrified of them.

Vera is fully vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered, up to date with all flea and worm treatment, five weeks free insurance and litter trained. If you feel you could Vera a home either call 02380 893188 or e-mail [email protected]

Billy

Posted November 25th, 2016 by sarah

Billy is a 8 year old King Charles spaniel. Billy came in to the rescue as his elderly owner was unable to care for him anymore. Unfortunately due to dementia she was unable to give him his medicine and Billy would constantly fib to her and tell her he had not been feed, so he has ended up at a whopping 17.5kg when he should be 8-9kg.

Billy is a typical King Charles and suffers with dry eye and ear disease, although these are both under control, he requires daily medication which costs £20 a month, his new owners would have to be able to afford vet care, as these will not be insurable as they are pre existing conditions. Billy will only be re-homed to a home that are committed to his weight loss and are relatively active!

Billy is great with other dogs, good with cats and ok with older children.

Billy is fully vaccinated, micro chipped and neutered. If you feel you could offer Billy a home either call 02380 893188 or e-mail [email protected]

What will my new pet come with???

Posted November 23rd, 2016 by sarah

DOGS:

Dogs will come fully vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered, five weeks free insurance from the lovely Agria, up to date with all flea treatment and wormer and a small bag of the current dog food they are on. If they are over the age of 8 years old, they will have had a general blood test to make sure there are no old age problems starting.

CATS:

Cats will come fully vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered, five weeks free insurance from the lovely Agria, up to date with all flea treatment and wormer and a small bag of the current cat food they are on. If they are over the age of 8 years old, they will have had a general blood test to make sure there are no old age problems starting.

RABBITS:

Rabbits will come fully vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered and will have a small bag of the current food they are on. At present we do not have a bonding service, however there are some local rescues who offer this at a small cost!

GUINEA PIGS:

Guinea pigs will come neutered, micro chipped and with a small bag of the current food they are on.

All other types of animals that come in the rescue will be micro chipped and are dealt with on a case by case basis (for example we would castrate a male horse, but we would not spay a female horse)

Risk of closure!

Posted November 20th, 2016 by sarah

It is with a heavy heart and tears that I am writing this post.
We are at serious risk of closure, the rescue bank is empty and I have used £8000 of my own savings to keep the rescue open for the last two years and that has now run out.
We would like to let all owners/potential new owners of our rescue animals (as we still have a few animals in that are looking for homes) that we will always take any of our animals back even if we close, I made all of those lovely babies a promise and I will keep it. All of the resident animals will stay with me as my own.
Animals are my life, they were my one constant through a difficult childhood and kept me going when all I wanted to do was give up. so I have devoted my adult life trying to repay that favour to them.
The last couple of years have been really tough on the rescue, the demand for our help has been overwhelming!
As many of you know we are a very small team here, all of our animals are kept in foster homes and we only use kennels as a last resort and the rest of the rescue is run from my home.
All Animal Rescue is a non-profit organisation and have shied away from charity status as we want to keep control of the rescue. Now I know this sounds a bit OCD, however we want to be able to decided what happens with the animals that come in to our care, quite a few of our animals have come to us from other organisations as they were deemed unsuitable for re-homing, in most cases these animals have just needed time, stability and good quality care and have gone on the be re-homed as loving pets.
The rescue is funded by donations and my wages! ( My long, suffering better half pays all the bills and he allows my wages to go on the rescue) Over the last couple of years with a larger number of animals coming in, we have found it hard to have the time to get out and about fundraising. I hear you shouting get volunteers to go out!! There are so many animal lovers out there, but time is precious and finding people willing to get up at 5am to do a car boot sale on possibly there one day off in the week, is really hard and don’t get me wrong I understand! Money is also tight for everyone so even asking for simple cake sales for Coffee mornings is more expensive than people think, cakes are not the cheapest thing to make anymore. So if anyone out there has any great ideas on easy fundraising we would be interested to here them.
We have started a Crowd funding page to try and stop the closure, if we can raise these much needed funds we will not only be able to prevent the closure, but we will be able to reopen the rescue’s doors to animals in need.
If you are able to donate, even if it is a £1 please follow the link to our Crowdfunding page

Mini Lard, Mervyn, Nibbles and Dave

Posted October 8th, 2016 by sarah

Lard came in to the rescue 5 years ago from a breeder, sadly all of her babies she was producing were still born, so she was now surplus to requirements. Due to being white with red eyes nobody wanted to adopt her, so she is now a permanent resident, she is now 8 years old.

Dave is only 2 and is a permanent resident, as he absolutely hates to be handled and no matter how hard we have tried he screams until you put him down! in light of this we felt he was not suitable for re-homing and will live out his days with us.

Mervyn came in to the rescue as a unclaimed stray. Mervyn is a very social rabbit who is amazing with all rabbits he is a old boy now with a estimated age of 10 years, we kept Mervyn as a permanent resident as he was brilliant at looking after all of the rescue rabbits when they came in and showing them that there is nothing to be scared of. Mervyn became a part of the team at all animal rescue.

Nibbles came in to the rescue this year as a unwanted childs pet. Nibbles is a escape artist who loves to dig!! Nibbles is a permanent resident for this reason! She is also turning out to be a bit like Mervyn and has been fab at looking after rabbits and guinea pigs that have not had the best start! Recently she has also taken to being body guard to the guinea pigs and if any local cats come in to the garden she is the first to chase them off!!

Important News!

Posted September 24th, 2016 by sarah

This year has been a tough year for the rescue! Sadly the amount of animals needing our help has gone up and so many have been in such poor condition or seriously ill.
As many of you know the rescue is run solely on donations and my wages, everybody that works here is a volunteer and nobody gets paid, however we are relying more and more on my wages and sadly there is only so many hours in one day that I can work.
So we are going to slow down the rescue and take some time to concentrate on fundraising!
The animals that come in to our care get everything that they need, we don’t want to take any in not knowing if we can give them a 100%, so we are going to work hard on building up a nice buffer in the account.
Sadly this means that the rescue calendar is going to have to go on the back burner and be a 2018 calendar, as the cost of making them is slightly out of our grasp at the moment.
If anybody would like to donate, we have a donate button on our website www.allanimalrescue.co.uk or our bank details are as follows:
Lloyds
All Animal Rescue
S/C: 30-90-85
ACC: 14710568
We would also like to take the time to thank all of our loyal supporters, we really would not be able to do what we do without you!

Captain Jack – Update 25/11/2016

Posted August 8th, 2016 by sarah

Captain Jack is now 6 months old! He is a really shy boy until he gets to know you. He would suit a home were he lives as the only cat, but he quite likes dogs that are good with cats. Jack would suit a quieter household with no resident children, with owners who have the patients for him to come round. Jack just wants a home with a radiator bed, located in a position that he can watch the telly from!! As this is his favorite pasttime!

Captain Jack is a 9 week old male black, domestic short haired. Captain jack came in with his brother and sister in a terrible state, covered in fleas, full of worms, muck, with diarrhea, sore eyes and so underweight.
Captain jack had a terrible eye infection, one of the worst we have seen for a while. He is a little trooper and has put up with daily treatment and antibiotics, bottom baths because of the diarrhea from the antibiotics. He is a really caring kitten and is always on hand to look after the others, he looks after them a little too well and forgets about himself.

Captain Jack will not be ready to go to his new home until he is 12 weeks of age, he will be suitable for a quiet household and he could handle living with other cats, dogs and older children.

Captain Jack will be fully vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered, up to date with all flea treatment and wormer, litter trained and with five weeks free insurance. If you feel you could offer Captain Jack a home either call 02380 893188 or e-mail [email protected]

Laurie

Posted August 7th, 2016 by sarah

Laurie is a 1 year old old Calico Tortoiseshell domestic shorthair female cat. Laurie will not be ready to go to her new home until she has raised her kittens, which will be about 6 weeks.
Laurie came in to the rescue with her mum Martha and two babies and her own two kittens, they were rescued from a hoarders house, who kept them in very bad conditions.
Laurie is very shy and takes her time to get to know you, however once she is comfortable she is very affectionate and chatty, she would ideally be suited to a home that is quiet and where she is the only cat.

Laurie will be fully vaccinated, micro chipped, neutered, litter trained and up to date with all flea treatment and wormer. If you feel you could offer Laurie a home either call 02380 893188 or e-mail [email protected]
