Meet the lovely cats that have been rescued by Sandbach Animal Rescue and are looking for their purr-fect home...
Beautiful Zeb arrived at the rescue with a severe skin condition and adored all the human attention. He will need a caring and attentive family and is familiar with a busy home environment. He loves to play and is likely to be an adept hunter once settled in a new home with some outdoor space.
Eleven-year-old sweet senior lady Lucy is searching for a peaceful and calming forever home. She was rescued after her previous home became increasingly unsuitable – unfortunately for Lucy, she was left extremely stressed after living with a dog.
Lively one-year-old Simba is a beautiful boy requiring a loving home, ideally with lots of space to bounce around in. This confident chap would need access to outdoor space. Sadly he was abandoned after his previous owners moved home and left him behind in Nantwich.
‘Help our rescue’
It’s been a difficult few months for Sandbach Animal Rescue. After what was a good start to the year (plans to extend the rescue with new hygienic pens and an outdoor run got the green light), Covid-19 put things on pause – including the rescue’s usual fundraising events.
“This included our monthly ‘cuppa and cake’ in Sandbach, which was the only monthly income we had come to depend on, especially over the autumn and winter months,” chairman Mel Wilson says. “We had to prioritise our spending immediately and the effect on the rescue meant that due to lockdown a lot of our volunteers were unable to work their regular shifts. We obviously also had to adhere to social distancing, which is difficult when eager adopters want to find a furry friend to spend their downtime with.
“Thankfully, committee meetings were held on Zoom, home checks and interviews were done virtually on FaceTime and visits and treatments at our vets continued successfully. We rely 100 per cent on our fantastic volunteers who fundraise, bake, foster and volunteer at the rescue.
“But our finances are suffering. Our only big fundraiser this year will be through The Brick Club – for each £10 spent to buy a brick, we will be able to complete the build and this will enable us to provide a safe, clean and useable rescue, which will provide huge enrichment for the cats and kittens in our care. In return, people will get a certificate in honour of, or in memory of, someone special, or even for themselves. We can do birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas – in fact we can do any type of certificate to suit the occasion.
“We really need the public to get behind this huge investment for animal rescue in Sandbach.”
