AT LAST! OUR FANTASTIC BOARDING KENNELS ARE NOW OPEN FOR VIEWING AND BOOKINGS.
BOOK NOW TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT
As well as dogs and cats we also offer a safe haven for many other animals. We always have rabbits looking for homes, often guinea pigs and others such as ponies, ferrets, rodents and parakeets. As well as domestic animals we also take in injured and orphaned birds and small wildlife. Wherever possible we care for them until they can be released but if they need more specialised care we pass them on to a dedicated wildlife rescue.
This Sunday, 3rd of August, our fund raisers will be at the Exotics Awareness Day which is being held at the Birmingham and Solihull Rugby Club , Portway near Birmingham. Whether you are a fan of the keeping of exotic animals as pets or not I am sure one thing we all agree on is that whatever type of creature we take into our home it is vital that we know how to look after them. Just as with dogs and cats as soon as a new type of animal becomes popular as a pet then there immediately follows a need for a rescue! The Exotic Awareness Day was started to educate potential owners to the needs of these pets. The people attending the event are passionate about the animals in their care, most run self funded rescues, and are very keen to educate potential owners on how to care for their new pet in order to prevent them becoming ill or unwanted due to ignorance of their needs. Sadly it is all too easy for someone to buy an exotic pet from the internet being sold by someone who has no knowledge of the species and who is just jumping on the bandwagon and selling the latest craze in unusual pets in order to make money. The Exotic Awareness Day has grown and is a great day out for all the family and an opportunity to get up close and personal with some creatures you have never seen, or possibly even heard of, before and to learn from the experts all about their habits, temperaments and requirements. Check out their Facebook page for more details. I can reassure you that no animals are sold at the event but there are lots of opportunities to buy treats and equipment for your pet. As well as dogs and cats Wythall Animal Sanctuary also rescues animals such as rabbits, parakeets and ferrets which are categorised as exotics and we attend the event to raise funds for the Sanctuary, to draw awareness of that side of our work, to give out advice and information to potential owners and to let people know what ‘exotic’ animals we have in our care currently looking for a home. So if you are looking for a fun family day out come along to the event and come and say hi to us on our stall. There will be games, stalls refreshments and events on throughout the day. If you have ever fancied walking a skunk, racing a ferret or petting a skinny pig…. Then this is the event for you. The event is located just off the A435 near Junction 3 of the M42. It runs from 10am to 4pm. See you there…..
Look mum…. No cast!! This is little Gatsby the Yorkshire terrier who came into our care with a broken leg. The good news is that he has had his cast removed and is ready to find a new home. You can read all about Gatsby’s story in our news section. We would like to thank everyone who has given support and donated towards his extensive vet bills. We are a none profit making charity and all of your help to meet unexpected costs like these are much appreciated.
