We're supporting Freshfields Animal Rescue

Rob Roy and Maggie Wales

Freshfields values the lives of all animals, and their core purpose is the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of abused, abandoned and unwanted animals.
Last year they rehomed 2,140 animals. This year they are aiming to exceed that figure.

There are 2 centres; one in Ince Blundell, Merseyside, and a second centre in North Wales, which is primarily a horse and pony sanctuary. The 24- hour rescue shelter in Merseyside is home at any one time to around 550 animals and wild birds. They care for dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, hedgehogs, farm animals and foxes, as well as wild birds.
Their aim is for the animals to begin a new life when they reach their doors. They provide emergency vet care, high quality medical attention, and access to follow up treatment and support. They have a Cattery, Kennels, Small Animals/Wildlife and the Farm, as well as a growing Wildlife Unit and Fox Unit. They try to find a loving home for each animal as soon as possible, whilst providing longer term support for the most traumatised and vulnerable.

Sponsor An Animal

For every animal we rescue, our ultimate goal is to find them a new, permanent, safe and loving home. As Freshfields operates a genuine non-destruction policy, this inevitably means that some of our animals will stay with us for longer than others before re-homing.

From as little as £4.50 a month, you could sponsor one of their animals and help provide food, shelter, medical care, warmth and love for them. Animal Sponsorship can also be bought as a gift for a friend or relative.

Floyd is a loveable 11 year old German Shepherd, who would love to be sponsored by you! His story is below.

Floyd came to us from a home with eight children. He was shut outside and tormented by them. Despite his cruel history, Floyd is a very loving and affectionate dog. With a patient owner willing to put time into helping him overcome his trust issues, Floyd will make an amazing, fun friend. When Floyd first came into the rescue he was not used to a lead and had never been walked.  However he has a long term dog walker who has put in a lot of time with him and now he loves his walks

Floyd is very happy here at Freshfields but we know that a loving home would be far, far better for this handsome boy! Until that day, we will be here for him, as long as he needs us. Last year, thanks to our generous supporters, we were able to refurbish our Dog Activity and Exercise Field, and Floyd is its most enthusiastic user! He loves the little pool and enjoys playing in with his toys and his best friend Beau. He gets on with most of the dogs here and is loved by all of us. He’s recently been diagnosed with arthritis, but his special diet and supplements keep him in good health.
