West Yorkshire Animals In Need rescued over 850 animals in 2012, both wild and domestic. Saving dogs from ‘death row’ in pounds and given a second chance at happiness; rescuing animals from harsh conditions such as puppies and dogs thrown from cars or sealed in cardboard boxes and left to die; abandoned cats and kittens dumped in skips and dustbins and left horses without food water or shelter. Sick & injured hedgehogs, various birds, foxes and badgers were also helped back to health and released back into the wild.
We never know from one minute to the next what we will be faced with! It could be rescuing an emaciated, elderly sick dog and rushing it to the vets to be treated or extracting a hedgehog that has become firmly stuck in an uncovered drainpipe! We care for all animals no matter what the circumstances, providing the right medical treatment and hands on care dependant on whether they are wild or domesticated animals. The domestic animals that we care for are in need rehoming through no fault of their own, WYAIN are there to support them rehabilitating back to health and ensuring they are trained well enough to be rehomed. While the wild animals are treated and when able and weather is suitable they are returned back to the wild. (more…)
