Freshfields Animal Care Crisis Appeal

WILL YOU HELP US? Freshfields Animal Rescue is facing a funding crisis, which is threatening our mission to rescue and rehome abused, neglected and unwanted animals.

Due to the never-ending stream of distressed animals who need us, we are always full to capacity with many more animals waiting to be admitted. Despite the soaring costs and intense financial pressures this brings, most of the time we survive and thrive, thanks to your support over the past 40 years.

At this moment however, Freshfields is experiencing a serious cash flow crisis through no fault of our own. Like many charities, we rely on Legacies and Gifts in Wills for around 30% of our funding. There is currently a national backlog in dealing with legacies. Solicitors are up to 4 months behind, with over 250,000 probate cases waiting to be processed. There are ever-increasing demands on our resources, as more and more animals are brought to our doors or, like Millie, literally abandoned on our doorstep every day.

We urgently need your help right now to see us through this critical time. Emma Jensen, Fundraising Manager, said: “This is a worrying situation for us, and a real shame that this has happened in our 40th anniversary year. The last time we launched an appeal like this was February, 2017. You got us through that time. Please, can you make a special donation to get us through this time? We need to be here for the next 40 years to help the hundreds of animals and birds who need Freshfields every day”. Many of our supporters will have read about Millie, tied up and abandoned in the road opposite the rescue centre. Millie was in poor health, scared, alone, helpless and vulnerable.

Thanks to you, Millie is now warm and safe with us, cared for and cherished whilst we help her to take the next steps towards healing in mind and body. For probably the first time in her life, Millie is learning what it feels like to be loved. We need to buy food and medicines for over 600 animals like Millie, who get the care and love they so desperately need. We need to pay our bills, and avoid the need to close our doors to new admissions. It’s an ongoing battle, and we’re currently at crisis point.

Please donate what you can, and if possible please consider setting up a regular donation which will help us to avoid this situation happening again. Never think your donation is too small to make an impact – every penny makes a difference. Emma said: “We would be grateful if everyone reading this could share this appeal with friends, family and colleagues and PLEASE, make a direct request for them to donate!
