Supporting the Tremendous Work of Barney’s Animal Rescue
It’s a pleasure to be able to write about Barney’s Animal Rescue. They are doing a fantastic job to foster and Rehome a range of animals. We received several comments supporting the work that they are doing in our recent Hen House competition. So much so that we are providing Barney’s Animal Rescue with a ChickenGuard Premium combi.
These were some of the comments we received:
“the work they do to safeguard and re-home all of their animals is brilliant – can’t praise them enough xx”
“Barney’s Animal Rescue so they can keep saving lives “
“Would love this to donate it to Barneys Animal rescue who help so many animal”
The centre was set up 3 years ago by Sonia Dale who had worked in rescue and with animals for over 20 years. It is based in Rochdale, Greater Manchester. It has allowed Sonia to run it her way and in particular help improve our future children’s attitudes towards animals.
Barney’s is a foster based rescue. All animals are in foster homes. Owner Sonia comments that “fostering is the best way to assess our animals needs and rehabilitate them. We take in dogs from all over Europe and tend to take the less desirable due to deformities and behavioural issues, our successful rehoming rate is excellent. We currently have 9 chickens in our care, in two foster homes. 2 at one and 7 at another, However the 7 will remain in foster for the rest of their lives, they have already had 4 homes and passed on as they weren’t laying.”
They also have around 25 rabbits in care as well as cats.
“Barney’s rescue is small and run by myself, Sarah and Joanne” says Sonia “we have the brilliant help and support of foster carers, transporters, fundraisers, home-checkers. We rely heavily on public donations to continue our work, we are non-proﬁt and we all voluntarily give up our spare time to help animals in need.”
If you think you can help Barney’s are always looking for foster homes for all animals throughout the uk and currently especially in the north. You can contact Barney’s via facebook if you are interested: https://www.facebook.com/BarneysAnimalRescue/
Within the next 2 years Barneys are hoping to have their own land where they can take in more livestock and outdoor animals not only to help more animals but also to be able to work with schools and teachers to teach children about compassion. We wish Sonia, Sarah and Joanne all the possible luck.
