Recently on 22nd January 2021, we discovered that our clinic in Runcorn was broken into. This community facility has had to close during lockdown, but normally provides reduced price vet treatment for residents of our catchment area who are in need of it. Offering this service means families can keep their beloved pets at home, and they still get the treatment needed to keep them happy and healthy.
Thankfully, nothing was taken by the intruders, although both the building and the inside was badly damaged.
We don’t know why we’ve been targeted, but we’re disappointed that the community outreach of a small local charity would be hurt in this way. Despite this, we’d like to say a huge thank you to the police responders, and Cheshire Roofing, who have fixed the worst of the outside damage and will be helping us restore the building.
The clean up inside and related admin will take hours of staff and volunteer time. This is especially hard at a time when our resources are already stretched to their limit.
If you can support us at this difficult time, donate to the work of RSPCA Warrington, Halton and St Helens through our JustGiving page, or give £5 by texting DOGSANDCATS to 70450 (texts cost £5 plus one standard rate message).
Thank you for all the support you have given us, to keep our kennels and cattery open to animals in need throughout the pandemic.
