The Animal House Rescue has been rescuing abused and neglected animals for the last 20 years, becoming a registered charity in 2005.
What is The Animal House Rescue?
A small Birmingham based rescue that was founded after seeing the amount of abandoned, abused and sick dogs that were just being dumped when people either no longer wanted them or couldn’t afford the vet bills towards their care.
All the animals that come into the care of the rescue are treated for fleas, ticks, mites and worms, they also have a full veterinary ‘m.o.t’, and are neutered, if over 6 months, and inoculated before going to their new homes. The Animal House Rescue does not use kennels, instead they have foster homes, which enable them to see the animals’ behaviour in a home environment. This means that any problems can be dealt with, and the Animals can then be rehomed to the most appropriate place.
The Animal House Rescue is staffed entirely by volunteers, and they have around 15 people who help them to run the Rescue after hearing about the great work that they do, either by looking at the website, facebook or by word of mouth from others.
Over the last 18 months, the Rescue has taken on an increased number of abandoned and abused Animals, meaning that their vet bills have increased dramatically.
If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?
As mentioned previously, the Animal House Rescue is entirely Voluntary run, with no staff paid, and no other real source of income apart from fundraising done by the Charity itself. If the Rescue were to be successful, they would use the funding to put towards their ongoing vet bills. This would take a pressure off the Rescue, and enable them to continue to rescue as many abused and neglected animals as possible. They would also use the money to create a sensory garden for the rescued Animals to access that would contain a variety of sensory plants that could be used to help the Animals during their recovery!
