Blue Cross rehoming centre

  1. 1. A day at a Blue Cross rehoming centre
  2. 2. Early in the morning We let the pets into their runs and walk the dogs.
  3. 3. Checking the horses Most of our horses and ponies live outside in small herds. We go and see how they’re doing and, if they wear them, check their rugs.
  4. 4. Feeding time All our pets have their own meal plan. Some may also be on medication which needs to be given regularly and recorded.
  5. 5. Cleaning We clean thoroughly every morning and then as we go along throughout the day.
  6. 6. Opening time Once our doors are open we have lots of people visiting to ask for help or to find out more about rehoming a pet.
  7. 7. Training Training helps to keep our pets happy and healthy and makes it easier to find them new homes.
  8. 8. Playing Play is an important exercise for the mind and body and keeps our pets happy.
  9. 9. Grooming Grooming not only keeps fur clean, it helps pets get used to being handled. Plus we can give them a health check at the same time.
  10. 10. Health care All our animals are checked by a vet and given treatment if they need it. They are also neutered and microchipped where it’s appropriate.
  11. 11. We feed again in the afternoon
  12. 12. Another break for the dogs Volunteers help us to look after the animals.
  13. 13. Bedtime Each rehoming centre has staff onsite overnight to check on the pets and to keep them safe.
  14. 14. Funding We don’t receive any government or lottery funding so we have to find lots of different ways to raise money.
  15. 15. How we raise our funds • Donations • Legacies (money left in a Will) • Grants • Charity shops • vents (such as climbing E Ben Nevis) • Open days • Corporate sponsors
