Members of the Davies team have been sharing their animal rescue stories in aid of Change a Pet’s Life Day. We will be hearing from various team members on how they have changed an animal’s life for the better and how animals have enhanced their lives too. They hope it will help to encourage people to adopt or foster pets from shelters and raise awareness about animals in need.
If you want to get involved there are various ways you can help:
Adoption – by adopting a pet you will be giving them a permanent loving home.
Fostering – when fostering a pet this means you will be providing the first steps for the animal to have a safe loving place to stay. This also means you are freeing up spaces and beds in shelters allowing space for more animals to be rescued.
Volunteering – Volunteering allows you to get involved in a way that suits you best, this could be helping with fundraising or helping at a shelter. Whatever suits you will be a huge help to any shelter.
Donating – Any kind of donation, whether a one-off or a regular donation, is a huge help to shelters and rescues.
Hannah Dee one of our Ward Nurses has rescued Ferrets from the RSPCA!
Hannah has recused 5 out of 6 of her ferrets. Sadly 2 of her ferrets were abandoned in the park in London during lockdown where she rescued them, and the other 3 were rescued from the RSPCA.
Ferrets are social animals and all 6 of Hannah’s ferrets are boys who get on extremely well and sleep bundled up together.
Fun fact: Ferrets sleep for up to 20 hours per day which is why when they are awake and playing they are so energetic and lively. When they are excited they jump sideways which is called a weasel war dance. The noise they make when happy or excited is called “dooking”.
Hannah also has a Cocker Spaniel Lily, a Cat called Phoebe and unfortunately, Hannah recently lost Nala her German Shepard x thoroughbred.
