because visitor numbers have dropped to zero and dogs and cats are not getting adopted. One near me is appealing for help already and I guess most will be in the same boat. I hope this doesn't mean many are going to have to be euthenised.

I sponsor a cat cabin and dog kennel at Battersea on behalf of my 2 grandchildren and send money to the RSPCA and PDSA each month. I also buy Christmas animal treats at Battersea and buy their raffle tickets. I send money to bears in Greece as per the Simon Reeves tv programme and support circus animals now in Africa from another tv programme. I'm a fairly rich...

No answers, I'm getting the hump;-)
Am I the only person concerned about this? Will nobody else be supporting their local rescue?
Sorry LB...I've only just seen this. I think things in A and N can get lost.
I don't know what's happening to the 2 main local sanctuaries here. I know one has ceased normal operations, the others website has not changed. No mention of covid.
The major rescues will, hopefully, find other ways to get financial support such as online quizzes, etc. That's what Foreverhounds Trust...where Sammi and Sally came from ...are doing. They started last week I think.

Good yours is trying new ways to financially support itself pasta and I hope more attempt to do the same. I expect some will try crowd funding.
Feeding all the different zoo animals must be incredibly expensive, goodness knows how they will make enough to keep going. I've seen enough pics of starving animals in zoos abroad, I don't want to see them from here.
I don't think most people realise the knock-on effects of all this. With their shops closed and their fund-raising non-existent the hospices are struggling for money too. Awful situation all round.

It never occurred to me Naomi until I read it in the newspaper. I wonder if there is a chance of government funding because as a country of animal lovers pictures of dead and dying elephants and such like would be unacceptable I think.
Perhaps the likes of Simon Cowell and Brian May, who are very rich known animal lovers can step up with a few million big ones here.
I suppose it depends upon how long this situation lasts. Organisations will necessarily be eating into reserves - but when that's depleted, who knows?

I'm a fairly rich pensioner but there's a limit to what I can give.
I forgot to ask, what are you supporting Ladybirder?
