Sponsor an Animal
At the moment we have four cats and six dogs in long term foster care.
More details and pictures will follow shortly
The dogs and cats are a selection of the animals that we have placed into long term foster care, but who require on going veterinary treatment for their various ailments and injuries.
Whilst the fosterers give a massive amount of love, care and attention to the animals, the rescue is responsible for their long term treatment. This obviously incurs a lot of expense. If you are able to help us offset some of these costs, then everyone, including the animals, will be for ever grateful.
There are many ways that you may help:
- A "one-off" donation, either into the rescue funds for general use, or directed at a specific animal.
- An undertaking to sponsor the treatment in full, or part, of a specific animal as required.
- A monthly standing order into the rescue funds, from a small amount of £5.00 per month up to whatever amount that you wish, for a minimum period of one year. Small amounts from enough people will ease the impact upon our on-going costs, which are considerable
If you elect to sponsor an animal from Alsager Animals In Need, then you will receive a personalised certificate, the charities information booklet, a current newsletter, a photograph and history of the animal concerned. Your sponsorship will help towards the cost of caring for the animal until a loving responsible home can be found.
If you would like to help us in this way, please contact anyone on our 'Contacts' page to discuss the matter in confidence.
Betty came into care a lovely black Staffy bitch puppy aged approx 5 months old, limping badly on a front leg. After two days in Kennels the limp not improving and after observing her movement it appears she may have something a little more serious going on. She was seen by a vet to determine if any treatment was needed as we thought X Rays may be the next step towards helping her. As on-going treatment was needed we found a knowledgeable home with an experience of Staffy/puppies to foster her.

Syd came to us on 15th October 2005, a young tabby/white un-neutered male, aged approximately 3-4. We responded to the call as it was a Saturday, and the lady, whose garden he lay in, thought he was dying. He was taken straight to a vet as he was very ill. He had Feline Infectious Anaemia, and skin cancer on every pad on his feet. His blood count was so low, a blood transfusion was given, and dioxycyclin. His blood count improved within a a week. By 7th November 2005 his blood count was up to 29 enabling castration and a biopsy done to be done on his feet. The result was benign cancer and chemmotherapy followed. He was in our care for 20 months and then fostered. He continues to have the steroid Prednisalone and is monitored.
