*ADOPTION UPDATE 22 April*
We’ve received some updated guidance from Association of Dog and Cat Homes (ADCH) on how to carry out a limited rehoming process during the Covid 19 pandemic. By following these procedures (social distancing, video home visits and clear communication between us, the fosterers and the adopter amongst other things), we are now able to take applications for adoption of cats who are ‘ready to go’ and don’t need any further vet visits before adoption. The focus will be on local area as much as possible as advised in the guidance.
This is great news as this means we can start to find furever homes for some of our fantastic kitties, meaning foster space freed to deal with any emergency intakes during the pandemic.
Please bear with us as we adapt to the new process!
Statement from British Vetinary Society re: a recent BCC news headline
“The British Veterinary Association has clarified its position in light of a report on the BBC news website relating to cats and coronavirus which may have worried people. The headline of the article suggested that veterinary advice was to keep all cats indoors, but BVA has explained this advice is only in relation to cats in infected households or where people are self-isolating and only where possible.”
