Thank you for the many generous offers to drop off donations such as food and blankets during this time. Unfortunately we are unable to accept items either being dropped off or posted at the current time for the health and safety of our core team on-site.

We are now further limiting all our services, in line with government advice, to protect our people and the public, and ensure we are focusing our resources on keeping the animals in our care safe and well. This includes:

19 March 2020
Following the advice of the UK government, we have made the difficult decision to postpone ‘An evening with Jane Fallon’ until later in the year. A new date will be announced as and when we have further information.
We are currently assessing options in regard to the upcoming Mayhew Open Day event and will make an announcement as soon as a decision has been made.
13 March 2020
As of Monday 16 March, Mayhew will be making the following changes to our operations in order to protect our staff, volunteers and service users. These amendments will be put in place to ensure we can continue to care for the animals in residence.
10 March 2020
As always, the safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and service users is paramount, and we are taking any and all necessary steps to ensure their ongoing health and safety. We have made the decision to temporarily suspend some elements of our TheraPaws programme in order to help protect those most at risk – including elderly and vulnerable service users inside hospitals, hospices, day centres and care homes. We will also be suspending all general tours of the Home until further notice.
We will keep you all informed about any changes to any of our other frontline services in due course, and we hope to re-establish TheraPaws in full as soon as possible, as we know it will be missed by many. We are grateful to everyone for their patience and understanding throughout this period.
We have also implemented the recommendations of Public Health England across our Home, and will continue to ensure that all our animals are being well cared for at all times. All staff members are being extra diligent in terms of self-care and personal hygiene, and are encouraged to self-isolate and call 111 if they experience symptoms, visit a high risk Category 1 zone, or come into contact with anyone they know or suspect may have the virus.
