Berwick animal rescue kennels

There are lots of stalls with some great ideas for the upcoming festivities. Why not join us for a mince pie and a hot drink? You’ll be very welcome.

Fund-raising is very important to the animals because without the funds we wouldn’t be in a position to help the hundreds of animals you enable us to every year.

Could you spare some time, do you have some great ides or would you just like to help? Please do speak to us on Saturday, or give us a ring. Willing helpers are always very welcome.

We have had what we thought was a feral cat around the estate at the kennels for some time. He had become more or less a permanent resident in the last six months and had set up home in a sheltered area we had made for him.

We managed to trap him last week and took him to the vets to be checked over and neutered, the plan being to let him back out.

It was such a horrible night we thought we’d try to keep him in a kennel, despite him not being in the best of moods, if only for the night. When we came in the morning Stanley was very settled and since then has come on and loves a bit of a fuss and a groom. We need to get his paw checked out, but hopefully he’ll be looking for a permanent home.

We have lots of other lovely cats, all sorts of colours and ages.

Mac is a beautiful tabby and white boy, or we have black or black and white cats, and perhaps, if you’re quick, a little ginger kitten.

Frankie is a sweet boy, small and fluffy. Although he is not keen on dogs in his own home, he’s fine out on walks.

Milo is a young Staffie-cross looking for a home. He is a very clever and bright boy, who loves to learn and is good around children.

Of course, we still have some rabbits and snakes, and there is still another week to go before we will stop rehoming for the festive period.
