Quite simply, our rescue team at the centre are beyond amazing. The work they do is exceptional. They are a small team that take on a big responsibility and a considerable workload. Although they are responsible for managing the surrender of pets and their rehoming, the team also love and provide care and compassion for every pet that walks through these doors.
