Covid 19 Update

We would like to thank you all for your patience and understanding during this exceedingly difficult time for everyone, including Happy Landings. We are incredibly grateful for the support we are receiving with both financial and physical donations, and to all those trying to help in any way possible. We know that many things remain uncertain now and here at Happy Landings we are definitely not out of the woods yet; finances are critical for us in terms of survival.

As a rescue we are here to do just that, to rescue animals. It has been difficult for us to have to close our doors and only accept emergency admissions. However, we had to do this as we did not know how many animals might need our help if their owners were sick and we had to furlough some of our team to save money. As the government guidelines are changing we are now looking at slowly starting to reopen to admissions and adoptions, and we are putting procedures in place to allow us to begin to safely restart the vital work we do.

As we know things are not going to be the same as they were in many aspects of our lives and this is the same for animal rescue centres. We must work to ensure that our animals, team and you are all as safe as possible. To restart the adoption process we are now able to accept application forms for animals again; we do have a backlog and are working our way through these to find matches for the animals that we are looking to rehome. We will be contacting people from the application forms to chat through the animal in question and to talk through our new processes.

We are not able to reopen our site in general at present and will be working on an appointment only basis. At the time of appointments, we will be working within the government guidelines to ensure that everyone is Covid safe. Our priority has to be to protect our staff as we cannot run the risk of the team having to isolate as this would have a knock on effect to the animals and would reduce what we can achieve.
