All About Us!

Posted January 21st, 2012 by sarah

We are a small non-profit organisation based in Holbury in the New forest, dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of unwanted animals.
Primarily we operate as a animal rescue, however we are passionate about educating owners on the 5 welfare needs that you are required by law as a owner to follow, by giving out this knowledge we hope that it will help prevent animals needing to come in to our care.
All Animal Rescue was founded by Sarah Mills and Ross Cheer 10 years ago, it is run from their home in Holbury. It is not a center that is open to the public, as all of the animals are kept in foster homes across the Southampton area.
Ross is a software engineer in his day job and Sarah is practice manager/unqualified nurse in her day job. Sarah is super lucky that Ross is so supportive of her passion for the rescue, his work wages pay for all the household bills and this allows her work wages to help pay for the day to day running of the rescue! This is also topped up by public donations and adoption fees.
Sarah has always been animal mad and looking through her photo’s the first time she was snapped helping on a rescue was at the early age of 7! She spent her childhood walking the neighbours’ dogs, following the herds of ponies on the forest learning about their behavior and taking in every bedraggled animal she could find, much to the annoyance of her family! They never knew what they would find in her room, when she was 10 she rescued a rabbit and made it a home in her wardrobe, needless to say it ate its way out and she was busted!!
As soon as she was old enough she was off pestering rescues to let her help, and she would not give up until they said yes! She would often be found doing all the horrible jobs like cleaning the kennels, picking up mountains of poo and cleaning cages, to prove she was worth having around. Sarah went on to work in many different rescues gaining as much knowledge and experience as she could.
Finally she met Ross, who was crazy enough to fall in love with this animal mad girl and she soon dragged him in to it and it was Ross that gave Sarah the courage and support to start her own Rescue, and that is where it all started.

Joop is a 5 year old neutered male, black domestic shorthair cat.  Joop came in with his sister Carmel when there owner relationship sadly broke down and he was unable to find accommodation that would allow animals

Alan is an 11 month old jack russell cross Chihuahua, neutered male.  Alan came in to the rescue as she was unable to look after him and cope with the special needs of his legs.

Alan has a condition called Luxating patellas, this is quite common in both of his breeds. Unfortunately for Alan in his left leg he had the most severe level of the condition and it required an operation to correct it. Alan has now had the correction on his left leg and bar a mild done infection he has recovered really well. Alan still needs to remain quiet and is not allowed any exercise and has to remain on cage rest for another two weeks, of which he is actually taking really well.
The right leg also has the condition but it is at a very minor grade and causes him no pain, so the vets have said it will be better for him to leave it as it is. Due to his condition any body thinking of taking him on will have to take in consideration the following:

  1.  Although his leg has been corrected, as with all operations none are guaranteed. If this operation fails it will cost £1000 -£1500 to be repaired, as this is a pre existing condition neither leg will be covered on insurance for anything related to this condition.
  2. He will need to remain on a supplement called yumove for the rest of his life, which cost’s around £8 a month
  3. He will never be allowed to get overweight! so if you know you’re a feeder and your dogs have always been overweight please do not apply, excess weight will cause him extreme pain on his legs.
  4. He will need consistent exercise –  for example he would NOT be able to cope with 30 mins a day and then a 6 mile hike on the weekend. His legs just could not cope with this. He will need an hour a day and then he could manage a maximum of a 2.5 hour steady walk on a weekend.

Alan is a real character, when he came in he had not been well socialised with other dogs and is still very much learning. Alan has no malice in him, but he gets extremely over excited when he see’s new dogs, however if you are firm with him and make him calm down and introduce him correctly he is absolutely fine! Alan is very much an annoying little brother, so he would need to live with a patient dog or one of a similar age. My little dog could not stand him when he first came, as Alan was like play, play, play and drove him mad, with in 4 days he had convinced my dog to play and now they never stop!! He is a terrible tea leaf and will steal whatever he can and take it back to his bed and bury it!! He is terrible on the lead and is learning to walk to heal and not pull!! Alan is fab off the lead and will try it on with most outdoor animals, however he is actually a wimp so as soon as they turn around he is off!!

Alan would fit into most households, he would be suitable for children over the age of 8 years, he is good with cats (as long as they stand up for themselves) and is great with dogs as long as they can put up with his annoying ways!!

Alan is fully vaccinated, neutered, micro chipped, comes with 5 weeks free insurance (this will not cover his back legs) and is up to date with all flea treatment and wormer. If you feel you could offer Alan a home either call 02380 893188 or e-mail [email protected]

Boo – Reserved

Boo is a 2 year old Harlequin lop neutered female rabbit. Boo came in to the rescue as her owners realised too late how rubbish rabbits are as pets for small children.
Boo was scared of the children and would run away, so the children were upset and then lost interest.

Thankfully instead of being left at the bottom of the garden and forgotten about, Boo’s owners did the right thing and gave us a call.

Boo is a lovely natured rabbit, who is happy to held and stroked, she was happy to let me give her a mot and clip her claws, she did spit her wormer back out at me, but that is pretty common!! Boo has lived with another female rabbit before and has so far been very pleasant to our resident rabbits through the bars of her run, so we feel that with the correct bonding she would happily live with another rabbit.

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