Oak Tree Animals’ Charity helps over 1700 local animals in 2018
Thanks to the support of the local community, Oak Tree Animals’ Charity was able to help over 1,700 local animals in 2018 – more than double the amount cared for the previous year.
Oak Tree, based in Wetheral Shields near Carlisle, finds unwanted animals loving forever homes and works proactively in the community to try to prevent animal welfare issues arising and the breakdown of relationships between owners and pets that can lead to animal suffering and relinquishment.
Caroline Johnson, General Manager at Oak Tree said “We are delighted to have been able to support over 1,700 local animals in need and their owners in 2018. We take a proactive approach to animal welfare and are able to not only rehome animals who are unwanted, but also provide education, support and practical animal welfare solutions to help keep pets in loving homes and prevent both animal and owner suffering when relationships break down or other circumstances change”.
“In 2019, the charity will continue to try to best serve the community through a diverse work programme including animal rehoming, neutering, feral cat colony management and working with vulnerable pet owners in our region.”
Caroline added “We would like to thank our community for all of the amazing support given to us in 2018 through donations, volunteering, supporting events and visiting our fantastic site. We are only able to provide services to animals and owners in our region who need us because of your generosity. Thank you.”
