Animal Care Trips
Yearr 11 Animal Care have visited two animal related charities in recent weeks, organised by Ms Hodder, to support their coursework on animal welfare. They had presentations and behind the scenes tours of the of facilities. The first trip in December was to one of the UK’s oldest animal welfare charities, The Blue Cross. The Blue Cross was founded in 1897 and has looked after abandoned or unwanted, ill or injured, pets every year since then. They currently help approximately 40,000 animals every year and work with all types of pets ranging from small domestic pets, like guinea pigs, to horses.
The second trip in January was to the new state-of-the-art cat rehoming centre built by Cat Protection in Mitcham, with revolutionary enclosures that are designed to ensure that the cat’s stay with the charity is as stress free as possible and the welfare of the animal is at the forefront at all times. Several of the cats were so friendly and wanting to be held and petted, that it was very difficult not to want to take them home. Adam Vallely was definitely the favorite of a few of the cats during the visit this week.
