Ravenswood Pet Rescue have taken in 27 dogs and 3 cats animals in the last 10 days with “almost all requiring vet care”. An emotive plea for financial support has been launched through a GoFundMe plea and Fenland District Council is backing the appeal for public support.

GoFundMe organiser Caroline Trigg says “The little lady in the picture received the first of her vet care.

“Her face was swollen and her eye sore due to terrible teeth, she was in agony. She had 10 teeth removed and in a few weeks’ time she will be back to the vets for a mammary strip and her spay.”

Caroline added: “Our bill is going to be big. We need help to cover costs for the animals in our care. These animals have arrived with us in an emergency situation.

“We would be very grateful for any help towards these costs.”

Ravenswood says: ‘Unfortunately the intake continues , now a gorgeous little girl abandoned with a broken leg ! Let’s see what we can do to help her tomorrow with her vet appointment , she has had X-rays and pain relief already now in foster , we may need your help again.’

Fenland Council says the Wisbech based pet rescue centre has just taken in three cats and 19 dogs rescued in a joint operation between police, the council and other partners.

Among them were young puppy litter and two of the dogs have now had litters of a total of 12 puppies. One of the cats is expecting kittens imminently.

“Ravenswood Pet Rescue coordinates a small team of foster carers who have taken the animals into their homes,” said a council spokesperson.

“The not-for-profit organisation is in desperate need of public support to continue the care.

“It’s calling for donations of puppy pads, washing powder, quick dry fleece blankets, pet disinfectant, puppy, dog and cat food and has launched a fundraising page.”

Cllr Susan Wallwork, portfolio holder for environmental health, said: “These vulnerable animals have been rescued thanks to a multi-agency operation that has seen so many people going above and beyond.

“We all owe a huge debt of gratitude to everyone involved and especially to Ravenswood Pet Rescue and its supporters for being there to pick up the pieces and give these animals hope.

“Already the generous and caring Fenland community is offering its support, and we have no doubt it will continue to rally.”

Investigations are ongoing in relation to those responsible for the animals.

Fenland District Council’s environmental health team is working with the property owner to improve the conditions of the building where most of the animals were found on April 20.

Ravenswood Pet Rescue is fundraising to help it ensure all the rescued animals get all the appropriate health, grooming and care they need to get them fit and old enough for rehoming.

Later, a chihuahua with four two-week-old puppies was rehomed to the care of Ravenswood Pet Rescue from elsewhere in Cambridgeshire.

This was followed by a separate incident on April 29 involving three three-day-old suspected English bull terrier puppies being rejected by their mum and in need of rescue.

Sadly, two were so weak they died, and one continues to be given high level care including bottle feeds every two to three hours day and night in a bid to save her.
