  Branch Coordinators Report
 
 Autumn 2021
 
 
 
 

  

 

So, we are into Autumn already and 2021 still hasn't seen life back to normal as we might have hoped. As a branch we are still looking after cats and kittens and getting them into their new, forever homes. As the same time however, we miss seeing our supporters out-and-about as we have not been able to attend any local fundraising events.

With the big increase in pet ownership over the past 18 months, and also some issues with the suppliy of animal medicines, we are starting to see some challenges in securing appointments with our Branch supporting vet surgeries. This could have a knock-on effect of delays in homing cats and kittens - we have set minimum standards of vet treatment that all cats need to have undertaken before they can be adopted. This includes being neutered, having had at least their first course of standard vaccinations and flea and worming treatments.

We would like to say a very big thank you to all the staff at the vet surgeries, who have been under a great deal of pressure to get animals seen; we very much appreciate all the support they offer to us as a branch.
