Animals in Distress - Torbay & Westcountry
Animals in Distress, Torbay and Westcountry, has been finding new, forever homes for tens of thousands of homeless dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs from across Devon since 1981. We look after up to 190 animals at any one time and rehome over 600 a year from the Rescue Centre in Ipplepen, Devon. Every year that is 600 animals who feel wanted and loved, 600 animals who never have to worry about being homeless again, 600 animals who have learnt that it is ok to be happy. While the animals are with us we strive to keep them healthy and happy by providing regular vet checks, feeding them quality food and give them every opportunity to exercise and socialise. We try to provide the majority of veterinary care on site to prevent unnecessary stress and we ensure all of our dogs and cats leave us having been microchipped, vaccinated and neutered, as well as treated for fleas and worms. A dog or cat in our care costs an average of £500. We receive no government funding so rely on the generosity of our wonderful supporters to continue helping as many animals as we can! £5 will feed one of the animals in our care for a week £15 will feed an animal for two weeks and provide a flea and worming treatment £20 will provide food, blankets and toys for one of the animals for a whole month!
