A Northamptonshire animal rescue centre has been given a grant to help pay its vets bills.

Animals in Need, in Little Irchester, has been awarded £10,000 by Support Adoption For Pets.

The rescue centre takes in a huge amount of cats, dogs, birds and more each year.

They care for a number of animals which are looking to be rehomed, as well as caring for wildlife which will eventually be released back into the wild.

All pets, where possible, are vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and treated for fleas and worms prior to rehoming.

The charity applied for the grant to help pay towards vets bills – their biggest expense, which totalled more than £63,000 last year.

Charity manager at Support Adoption For Pets Amy Wilson said: “It is a real privilege to work alongside such a dedicated team of volunteers and we are delighted to offer our support to one of the largest rehoming charities in the area. “They do an amazing job of caring for both wild and domestic animals.”

Support Adoption For Pets is an independent charity established by Pets at Home in 2006.

Since then it has helped more than 950 re-homing centres and animal welfare organisations across the UK.

In addition to its fundraising work it also runs dedicated adoption centres in more than 370 Pets at Home stores.
