Description

Animals at Risk Shelter has been placed first for six awards. Pet Plan/Cats Magazine voted us Best Cat Rescue Shelter in the U.K. five times winner of Luton in Bloom Floral Display (Business Premises) and the High Sheriff of Bedfordshire presented us with the Good Citizenship award for the service we give to senior citizens and the help we give to them with their companion animals with tasks that they are unable to do by themselves.


Company description
Hello, we're Maggie & Pete Morrison. Our Shelter operates from our home and we handle a mixture of animals numbering 500-600 per year; and we have a no-kill policy at our shelter ?unless the quality of life has gone. We first started animal rescue 30 years ago and have been vegans for the same number of years. Our Shelter has been placed first for six awards. Pet Plan/Cats Magazine voted us Best Cat Rescue Shelter in the U. five times winner of Luton in Bloom Floral Display (Business Premises) and the High Sheriff of Bedfordshire presented us with the Good Citizenship award for the service we give to senior citizens and the help we give to them with their companion animals with tasks that they are unable to do by themselves. Apart from the animals that are in for re-homing, we have on average, at any one time, 40 to 50 residential infirm animals, mainly cats and dogs.
These live the rest of their days at the shelter, as they are unsuitable for re-homing for various age and health reasons. They live as part of our family at the Shelter. Apart from minor squabbles, there have never been any major problems. We have set up nightly feeding stations about the town for the colonies of feral cats. These we have trapped, spayed or neutered, and ear-tipped for identification. The streets at night can be dangerous when rescuing animals: we have been attacked by a person with a bread knife, that thankfully missed; on another occasion, when we tried to retrieve abandoned animals we were assaulted by drug pushers, who tried to throw us over a third floor balcony parapet, in many cases we have had to thank the police for our safety.
On our nightly feeding rounds we are known as 'the animal people'. We are positive we have made more friends than enemies ? we're often approached by people asking for help or advice about their animals, if possible, we're always happy to oblige. We see such unbelievable cruelty. We rescued a bitch who was left in a tea-chest to die with her new born p

The shelter was watching

, more than 2 years ago

We've got about a month ago an eight year old German Shepherd from a shelter. The poor dog had it in his life is not easy and so we decided to give him a nice home. Last week we had an unexpected visitor from the animal shelter. The shelter-mediated control dogs and their new home, to make sure that the animals are doing well also. We were pleasantly surprised and, of course, something we find very good.
