Summer Update from CDCH
The centre has been as busy as ever this summer. Lots has changed for everyone in light of the situation but that doesn't stop our around the clock care for our animals.
Lots of changes were made at the centre to accommodate social distancing and the new Government rules. The staff continue to work their socks off ensure our animals know no different.
Here is a bit of an update of what we have been up to in our Summer Lockdown!
Kitten cuties in abundance!
As expected, we have seen lots of kittens needing care over the summer. From 2 week old kittens found abandoned at the side of a road to houses overrun with too many animals to properly care for. We of course welcomed them in and ensured they received the love and care they needed.
Some of the kittens, given their previous living conditions, were poorly and needed extra, around the clock care. We are very lucky to have a fantastic network of fosterers who were able to take the kittens in to ensure they got the care they needed.
Noah in his foster home
Following an appeal for foster for Noah, a lovely couple came forward who own two greyhounds. We introduced the dogs so they could decide whether they would be happy to all share their home for a while and all three got on very well!
The family are local therefore can support us by providing a loving home, take Noah to hydrotherapy and continue his physio exercises.
Noah is doing incredibly well with them and is so much happier for being in a home environment.
Tommy finally gets his forever home
We are delighted that Tommy has finally found his forever home at last!
Tom and his adopter met for the first time just before lockdown so further introductions were suspended until June.
Since then, his adopter has driven the 2 1/2 hr round trip at least 8 times before finally taking Tommy home.
We wish Tommy the best of luck and love in his new forever home!
Chip enjoys cuddles in a home after 9 months at the centre
Beautiful Chip had spent almost 9 months in CDCH care after being infected with Ringworm.
This golden oldie put up with us shampooing her daily and giving her multiple Ringworm treatments with very good grace and patience.
When she finally received the all clear during lockdown, we were keen to get her into a home as soon as possible.
A family approached us who had always adopted elderly cats. They were the perfect match for Chip and she is now enjoying all the love and snuggles she wants in her new home.
Bessie found just 3 weeks old at the side of a motorway
Bessie was discovered at the side of a motorway at just three weeks old. She was picked up by the Inspectorate and brought to CDCH where the team have rallied around to provide her with around the clock care and feeding.
She was slowly introduced to solid food and showed interest! Gorgeous little Bessie went into foster until she is ready to be rehomed at 8 weeks old. She is now 14 weeks old and in a fantastic forever home where she will never be short of love and attention!
We couldn't have had the busy summer we have had, helping animals like the above and many more, without your support!
