  • Rescuing animals

    Mayhew's Animal Welfare Officers rescue abandoned or mistreated animals every day.

    We also work with the local community to rescue abandoned or mistreated animals.

    Many of the animals that arrive at Mayhew have been abandoned or found as strays. We are often called by helpful members of the public who alert us to animals who are in distress or roaming the local streets. Our Animal Welfare Officers will then respond to these calls and go to help the animal in need. The animals are often treated by our community vet clinic. Once they are back to full health, we will then help them to find a new, loving family.

    Puppies listed on Gumtree

    When two Chihuahua puppies, Brave and Shadow, were born unexpectedly, they were quickly listed on Gumtree as their owner struggled to cope.

    With no luck selling them, the owner turned to us for help.

    Thrown out with the rubbish

    Ginger kitten, Barbara, was found in a taped up litter tray that was thrown out with the rubbish. She was covered in urine, suffocating, and was lucky to be found before the local refuse collectors came.

    This is how we helped.

    You can help us to keep rescuing animals from situations where they suffer cruelty and neglect.
