Cradley Heath animal rescue charity appeals for help

Bosses at Wild Acre Rescue are appealing for public support after huge vet's bills mean their funding is at an all time low.

A post on the charities Facebook page revealed they haven't been able to open their furniture warehouse since January after problems with the roof forced them to close the doors. A spokesperson said:

"Kitten season has started early and we are already looking at a vets bill of nearly £2000 next month for the emergency treatment of two cats. We also have animals that are unable to be re-homed so will need to stay in long term foster care, where we cover their monthly bills.

"We have only been able to take in emergencies for the last 6 months as we just cannot stretch our funds any further. If people can spare even £1, or if they can donate cat or kitten food, this would help us greatly."

Wild Acre was set up to promote the welfare of ill-treated, abandoned and homeless animals in the Black Country and aims to provide advice, support and education to the general public in all matters concerning the welfare of domestic pets. Their team of volunteers help to look after the animals in their care and also staff the charities shop in Cradley Heath.

Donations can be made through the charities website or by purchasing items from their Amazon Wishlist. Any food or other items can be left at the Wild Acre Rescue shop on High Street, Cradley Heath or collection can be arranged through their Facebook page.
