We’ve come a long way since we were founded around a kitchen table back in 2002. Since then, our volunteer network has grown to meet the growing demand for animal welfare in North Devon. And so have the animal hospital services we can offer to the county’s animals.
Another cat rehoming story had a happy ending. It was just one of hundreds of felines we’ve rehomed with new local owners since 2002.
We’ve come a long way since our
first animal hospital
Our first ‘animal hospital’ was the Misty Centre in Barnstaple. Then, in 2009, thanks to the generosity of Market Vets and a legacy from the late Nancy Sawyer, we opened our special care unit (SCU), on Barnstaple’s Pottington Industrial Estate. That was a big step for a small local charity like ours.
Vital hospital facilities for local animals
Our SCU provides vital hospital facilities for a wide range of domestic creatures. Whether they’re caring for cats, rabbits ferrets or dogs, our dedicated volunteer helpers have achieved many animal treatment and rehabilitation successes.
In 2013, thanks to Market Vets’ continued generosity, the capacity of our little animal hospital will increase further. We’ll also be launching free animal welfare clinics there. It’s just another stage in the continued growth made possible by support from animal lovers like you.
