F.A.I.T.H. is a progressive animal rescue centre, where animal welfare comes first. We believe that their mental health and well being are as important as their physical health.
Dogs are sociable animals so we have kennels where it is possible for the dogs to socialise and play together. You won’t see rows and rows of lonely stressed animals kennelled in isolation, as is often the case when visiting rescue centres, although we do have an isolation block for dogs awaiting health check clearance and veterinary treatment.
We also have a communal cat house which offers ‘home-from-home’ comforts with sofas, chairs, shelving with hidey holes and a large meshed run with climbing frame, a water feature and toys. We also have isolation cabins for those needing or preferring separate accommodation. These are state of the art enclosed in inclement weather and open sided when weather is fine. Cats are vaccinated not only against flu and enteritis, but also leukaemia.
We have a FULL neutering policy which includes all female puppies and kittens too. Young males are given a neutering certificate which is acted upon at five months of age. All dogs and cats are wormed, vaccinated and micro chipped, and most leave with four weeks free pet insurance. Home checks are also carried out before anyone is allowed to adopt an animal.
We have a non-destruction policy, with exception to end suffering and then only on veterinary advice. No animal is “put to sleep” simply because it’s too old, too naughty or too difficult. If it’s age or behaviour make itimpossible to re-home satisfactorily, then it will remain at F.A.I.T.H. for the rest of it’s life.
The bulk of our work is with cats and dogs, but we have and help anything from hamsters to horses.
