News: Teckels animal rescue centre short term future secured

Posted on 26 February 2019

Thanks to the support of animal lovers throughout Stroud and the surrounding areas, Whitminster based cat and dog rescue centre Teckels, has been saved from closure.

 “We have had an absolutely fantastic response to our December appeal” said Centre Manager, Sarah Fortey, “thanks to the generosity and support of local animal lovers we have raised almost £74,000 to date.  This has given us the critical funds needed to see us through the early part of the year which is a particularly quiet period for generating income from boarding and fundraising activity.  This has also given us the breathing space to review how we operate and look at ways of improving.  But most importantly the money has prevented us from closing our doors for good.”

As well as raising critical funds, local people have stepped forward to volunteer their time at Teckels with 30 signing up to help with vital day to day tasks including dog walking, kennel cleaning, data entry and reception duties.

Teckels have appointed 5 new trustees each with the experience and knowledge to help the centre back onto its feet, with skills including strategic business management, business transformation, finance and fundraising.  The new board lead by George Ridd are already working on a recovery plan to secure the long-term future of Teckels and enhance the site and services over time.

“We’ve made some excellent progress” said George Ridd, “however to secure our long-term future, we will need ongoing support from local people.  This can take many forms from becoming a member, using our boarding facilities, offering to volunteer or donating.  We would also love to talk to local businesses regarding sponsorship of improvement work or offering professional support such as grounds or building maintenance.”

To get involved visit https://www.teckelsanimalsanctuaries.co.uk/ email assistantmanager@teckelsanimalsanctuaries.co.uk or call 01452 740300

DOT THE WONKY PUP UPDATE

You may remember we told you about the miniature schnauzer pup who came to us with a suspected neurological condition. We lovingly refer to her as ‘Dot the wonky pup’ as her condition causes her to move around as if she is drunk, occasionally falling over.

Our vet has advised a brain scan which we are booking to take place asap, in the meantime you will be pleased to hear she is doing well.

We apologise but we are unable to take adoption enquiries at the moment, but we will provide a further update as soon as she is ready for rehoming.

When it comes to cats and dogs, we believe that every animal deserves loving care irrespective of health, age or temperament. This includes sick animals like Dorothy, who require expensive veterinary treatment.

Please donate to help Dorothy and animal like her by visiting http://ow.ly/Geka50nEmr8
