‘We are full,’ says Lancaster’s Animal Care as it issues an urgent plea for help
The cost of living crisis is impacting many people who are now struggling to meet the costs of keeping a pet.
As a result, many animal shelters are seeing an increase in the number of pets seeking rehoming.
Animal Care of Blea Tarn Road released a statement this week saying they are now at full capacity in all areas.
“The kennels and cattery are full of animals that need new homes,” they said.
“We get a record number of calls and emails every day from people who need our help, but we just don’t have the space.”
The statement on Facebook went on to say that if you weren’t able to adopt but still wanted to help, there were a number of items they needed.
