Keeping everyone safe at Warrington Animal Welfare (WAW) and Covid-19 Crisis Appeal
Updated: April 2021
- Appointment only – we remain close to the public, if you need to attaned the centre for a welfare reason, this is by appointment only. Please do not just turn up as you will be turned away.
- Adopting an animal / Virtual rehoming – we are rehoming most of our animals virtually with visits to the centre currently suspended due to restrictions. If you are genuinely interested in adopting a specific animal, please keep an eye on our Facebook page and website. If you see an animal you are interested in, use the inquiry form in the ‘adopt’ section, each animal has their own link to the form, please provide as much information as possible. We can only reply to those applications we are progressing. All adoptions are subject to a range of mandatory checks.
- Animal surrenders (welfare cases) - we are still able to take in animals, but thiis is by strict appointment only, please call first to discuss.
- Vet Care - strict appointment for members of the public coming to the site for veterinary care, with animals dropped off and collected from outside the centre.
Adhere to social distancing.
Wear face covering (unless medically exempt).
Maintain good hand hygiene, using the hand sanitiser which is available in all areas.
Be patient with staff and volunteers.
Getting in touch with Charity
We are very busy and ask that you be patience, we also may not be able to reply to all inquires.
We still need your support to continue and you can still drop off donations at the centre, any day 9am-4pm. Donation needs to be left at the gates of the centre – no need to come in, but do not leave donations outside if we are closed. You can also donate safely at home via our Amazon Wish List.
