Despicable burglary at Freshfield Animal Rescue Centre

Merseyside Police is appealing for information following a burglary at Freshfield Animal Rescue in Ince Blundell.

A spokesperson from Merseyside Police said: "Officers were called to the centre on East Lane, to a report that a drawer containing a quantity of cash and cheques had been taken between 3:15pm to 4pm on Saturday 1st April 2017. Enquiries have been carried out and CCTV opportunities have been explored."

A spokesperson from the centre said: "Freshfield Animal Rescue work tirelessly to raise funds year on year to save so many animals. We have thousands of wonderful supporters in our local communities that will be upset and shocked at this."

They went on to say: "Everyone at the Centre is heartbroken about this. The person stole £245. from our reception on Saturday afternoon 1st April about 4.30pm. The volunteer on duty had stepped out to go into the bedding shed and in that few minutes of reception being unattended, someone nipped in and took the money and some cheques. The horrible thing is that, of the thousands of amazing people who come to the Rescue Centre, there is someone who can do this to the animals!"

Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

Freshfields Animal Rescue is a community focused non-profit making charitable organisation caring for abandoned, abused and unwanted domestic and small farm animals along with sick and injured wildlife.

We serve our local communities via the rescue and re-homing services we provide and we act to support community, local wildlife and the environment through our urban conservation initiatives. We provide temporary refuge and sanctuary for an endless cycle of animals in need of help with each animal receiving the food, medication, socialisation and emotional healing required before re-homing or release.

We passionately believe that the well-being and future success of every species of animal and bird is a shared responsibility. Through our outreach and education initiatives, our aim is not just to inspire high standards of welfare and respect for all animals but to empower each individual (young or old) to work towards achieving this goal.
