Christmas-2020-Facebook-Header.jpg

It’s been a strange year for everyone, the impact of Covid-19 has been reflected in our finances, with many of our fundraising opportunities drying up but has also seen an increase in demand for our services and support.

In a normal year, we would do lots of fundraising to support our rescue centre and neutering programmes with stalls at summer fayres and shows, bag packing at supermarkets, events and a range of other activities. We don’t receive any government funding, so fundraising is critical to our rescue operating.  
 
As the coronavirus situation continues, we really need your help to survive these uncertain times, so we can help animals now and continue into the future.
 
This Christmas we are asking you to help us to survive so we can continue to help animals in need, many of them innocent victims of the pandemic.
 

A strange year

Animals don't know we are in the middle of pandemic - there are still animals in need of rescue and in need of homes - our rescue has remained active throughout the pandemic, albeit with new, safe ways of working and our doors remain open to help animals in need.  We work 365 days a year to provide for the animals in our care, including all through the festive season.
 
This year we have taken in pets from people who have sadly died, lockdown pets that were no longer wanted when people went back to work, sickly puppies that have been bred to meet the increased demand, pets who people could no longer afford to keep due and supported the community by offering pet food to those in need and much more.
 

How you can help the animals

All the animals in our care really want is a home for Christmas, but until that happens we need to make sure they are well looked after, cared for and most importantly loved.  
 
With your help we can make sure that the animals in our care have a great Christmas and that we can continue to help them and the community into the future.
 
There are many different ways you can help and get involved:
 

Make a donation:

  • ITEMS WE NEED:  Wet & Dry Food – cats, dogs & kittens, rabbit and guinea pig food & treats, poop bags, black bin bags (good quality), kitchen roll, good yard brush / inside brushes, Kong (strong) dog toy, washable scratching posts, waterproof dog coats.

    You can always use donate items via our Amazon Wish List.
  • Donations can still be dropped off at the centre – but must be left at the gate (within current Covid-19 restrictions).  Plesae note the roadworks, which affect how you get to us.
  • Give a ‘Cash’ Gift: The best way you can support us is to make a donation, no matter how small, it all helps to care for the animals.
You can donate money in a number of ways:
💜 Send a cheque to: Warrington Animal Welfare, Slutchers Lane, Bank Quay, Warrington, WA1 1NA
💜 Online donation (one off or regular monthly donation) via JustGiving or Charity Checkout
💜 PayPal – using: info@warringtonanimalwelfare.org.uk
💜 Pay direct to our bank: Sort code 60 20 29 / Account No: 50246798
💜 Text to Donate:
• To donate £5, text NEUT001 to 70970
• To donate £10, text NEUT001 to 70191

⛔⛔ IMPORTANT: ACCESS TO OUR RESCUE CENTRE ⛔⛔

Slutchers Lane is now closed at the junction of Wilson Patten Street until December 2020.

As a result, access to Slutchers Lane for all businesses and properties along Slutchers Lane including the private service road and Bank Quay Trading Estate will be from Chester Road via the new bridge (opposite the Texaco garage / Gainsborough Road junction).
 
Follow signs to SLUTCHERS LANE SOUTH - once over the new bridge, ignore the road closed signs, go through the traffic lights, turn left onto Slutchers Lane and follow the signs to our rescue centre (under railway arches, past the go-karting, past RSPCA and up to our car park).

Google Maps have been updated to reflect the works, so use WA1 1PJ.

Pedestrian Access should still be open from Wilson Pattern Street and is being maintained by the contractor during working hours.

PLEASE NOTE THE RESCUE CENTRE REMAINS CLOSED TO DROP IN VISITORS AND WE ARE RUNNING A STRICT APPOINTMENT SYSTEM - FIND OUT MORE HERE.

Helping us to keep going...

As the coronavirus situation continues, we really need your help to survive these uncertain times, so we can help animals now and continue into the future.
 
WAW relies entirely on donations from our supporters to care for animals and as our funding streams dry up we are forced to ask you for help so we can ensure the future of the charity.
 
We don’t like asking, as we know it’s a difficult time for a lot of you – but we are truly concerned and need to take urgent action.
 
If you can help by donating whatever you can to help us through, we would be so grateful.
 
You can donate in a number of ways:
💜 Send a cheque to: Warrington Animal Welfare, Slutchers Lane, Bank Quay, Warrington, WA1 1NA
💜 Online donation (one off or regular monthly donation) via JustGiving or Charity Checkout
💜 PayPal – using: info@warringtonanimalwelfare.org.uk
💜 Donate items via our Amazon Wish List
💜 Pay direct to our bank: Sort code 60 20 29 / Account No: 50246798

Updated 12 October 2020CORONAVIRUS.png

Animals don't know we are in the middle of pandemic and there are still animals in need of rescue and in need of homes - our rescue does remain closed to drop-in visitors and is running a strict appointment system.  We have also introduced the following safey measure to keep you safe:

  • Stict appointment system for all visitors (donations can still be dropped off without an appointment, but will need to be left a the gate).
  • Limited the number of people on site.
  • All visitors to wear a face covering when on site, along with staff and volunteers.
  • Adhering to social distancing.
  • Installed hand sanitsier and encourage good hand hygiene.
  • Changed our homecheck procedures - we will discuss those with you, if you are adopting.
As you appreciate this requires more resources and we may not be able to respond to all inquires, or may take longer to reply, so we ask that you are patience.

Our amazing staff and volunteers will still be at the centre to ensure our animals waiting for their forever homes still get the best care we can offer during these challenging times.

Getting in touch
Our phone lines remain open - 01925 748638, however we are experience a high demand in service, so please consider if your call is urgent before calling and be patience if you cannot get through.

We are very busy and ask that you be patience, we also may not be able to reply to all inquires.
 
Adoptions / Appointments
If you are interested in adopting a specific animal please get in touch to discuss, we ask that you provide as much information on your application.

Do not come to site if you, or any member of your household is self-isolating, has any flu-like symptoms, or has been in contact with anyone who has.

Due to roadworks, you have to access our site via an alternative route - find out more here.
 
Donations
We still need your support to continue and you can still drop off donations of food at the centre - just at the gates of the centre – no need to come in, but do not leave donations outside if we are closed.  You can also donate via our Amazon Wish List.
