House builder provides Merseyside animal charity with vets supplies

A Merseyside animal charity, Freshfield Animal Rescue Centre, has been able to purchase much needed supplies for its new on site vet centre, thanks to support from local house builder, David Wilson Homes (DWH) North West.

Freshfield Animal Rescue Centre, successfully applied for help through DWH North West's charitable and community scheme, Our Space, Your Place. These funds have been used to buy vets supplies that the charity desperately needs in order to make managing its own on site vet centre a reality.

The charity, which has provided a rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing service for abused, abandoned and neglected animals in the region for 30 years, is looking to take on a greater role in the medical care of the creatures it helps. Freshfield' new on site vet will allow the Centre to achieve this goal, while still continuing to care for the 550 dogs, cats, small animals and wildlife it cares for each day.

Andrew Taylor, Our Space, Your Place Project Coordinator and Planning Director at DWH North West, comments:- "At David Wilson Homes, we are dedicated to building strong communities in areas surrounding our developments. Freshfield Animal Rescue is a great local cause which does so much to help the region's animals in need. In 2015 it re-homed an astonishing 1,500 animals for example. We're proud to have played a part in setting up the Centre's on site vet and hope that this new facility means Freshfield is able to offer even better care in the future."

Debbie Hughes, who helps to manage Freshfield Animal Rescue Centre, said:- "We're really grateful to the DWH North West team for their help in kick starting the medical care we're able to offer the huge variety of animals we care for here at Freshfield. Managing our own medical care will make providing the best care possible easier for our fantastic team, which helps to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home everything from domestic pets to wildlife and woodland creatures."

The housebuilder's 'Our Space Your Space' scheme offers support to community groups in the region through volunteering time or funding. Applications can be made online.

Freshfield Animal Rescue Centre is situated close to several of DWH North West's developments, including Southport's Pavilion Gardens. DWH North West's sister company Barratt Homes has also launched a development in the area surrounding Freshfield.
