LOCAL ANIMAL SANCTUARY HAS CLOSED ITS DOORS
Mayflower Animal Sanctuary a local Dog and Cat Rescue in Bawtry, like many organisations is been badly affected by the Coronaviris Crisis. Spokesperson person Margret Godley from Tickhill says that whilst the sanctuary is closed to the public it is still operating but behind closed doors. In line with Government guidance it is not allowing visitors or volunteers to enter the Sanctuary.
Mayflower has also had to move some of its much adored animals to temporary foster home enabling them to reduce staff numbers.
However the majority of cats and dogs many of which need special care are still at the Sanctuary in Bawtry. Despite the pressures the remaining staff are doing a fantastic job.
Unfortunately, with no income for visitors or rehoming along with the cancellation of planned fundraising activities such as the Summer Ball, Sponsored Dog Walk, Table Top Sales and Dog Show income has plummeted.
Margaret added that she was confident that Mayflower Sanctuary would still be there the carry on with all the rescue work and caring for the animals when the crisis is over but only with public support.
