Freshfields Animal Rescue launch appeal to help funding ‘crisis’
Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre in Sefton is facing a funding crisis, which they say is threatening their mission to rescue and rehome abused, neglected and unwanted animals.
Due to the never-ending stream of distressed animals who need their help, the centres in Ince Blundell and North Wales are always full to capacity with many more animals waiting to be admitted.
Despite the soaring costs and intense financial pressures this brings, most of the time we survive and thrive, thanks to your support over the past 40 years.
At this moment however, Freshfields is experiencing a serious cash flow crisis – like many charities, they rely on Legacies and Gifts in Wills for around 30% of their funding.
Emma Jensen, Fundraising Manager, said: “This is a worrying situation for us, and a real shame that this has happened in our 40th anniversary year. The last time we launched an appeal like this was February, 2017.
“We need to be here for the next 40 years to help the hundreds of animals and birds who need Freshfields every day.
“We need to buy food and medicines for over 600 animals, who get the care and love they so desperately need. We need to pay our bills, and avoid the need to close our doors to new admissions. It’s an ongoing battle, and we’re currently at crisis point.”
