CPR proud to sponsor local animal charity.....!

Commercial Property Rotherham are extremely proud to be associated with local animal charity, Rain Rescue, and have recently agreed to sponsor this fantastic worthwhile local charity based in Wickersley in Rotherham. Here's their wonderful story so far....

Founded in 2002, Rain Rescue charity has saved the lives of thousands of the cats and dogs most at risk in and around Yorkshire. Rescuing hundreds of animals a year, their rescue centre provides the space and support needed for these abandoned animals to recover, thrive and find a loving home. 

They see the beautiful animal that is sometimes hidden under layers of pain and neglect, and match them with the owners they deserve. Their focus is on the cats and dogs that most need their help.

Founder, Jacquie, made a promise to help as many pets in need as she could after seeing the conditions homeless dogs had to endure in council stray kennels, and knowing they could be put to sleep after receiving their statutory days of care. And so, in 2002 she established the volunteer group Rotherham Animals In Need. From 3 cattery rooms and using boarding kennels, the charity has grown and adapted to help where it is needed most. In 2006 Rotherham Animals In Need became Rescuing Animals In Need, or Rain Rescue as it is known today, and registered as a charity.

In 2013 Jacquie was voted onto the board of elected officers and committee of the Association Of Dogs and Cats Homes (ADCH), where she helped shape national strategies for animal rescues. Rain Rescue remains a full member of the ADCH, proudly upholding their high standards in animal welfare. 

Although it’s grown, Rain Rescue remains a small, local charity. Their rescue centre has a cattery, kennels, exercise field, vet room and socialisation space, and is supported by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers. Thanks to donations and sponsorship they are able to save the lives of hundreds of vulnerable cats and dogs each year. To continue, they really need support from people and businesses - please see www.rainrescue.co.uk/donate
