A Meresyside animal charity, Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre, has been able to purchase much needed supplies for its new on-site vet centre, thanks to support from local housebuilder, David Wilson Homes (DWH) North West.

Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre, successfully applied for help through DWH North West’s charitable and community scheme, Our Space, Your Place. These funds have been used to buy vets supplies that the charity desperately needs in order to make managing its own on-site vet centre a reality.

The charity, which has provided a rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming service for abused, abandoned and neglected animals in the region for 30 years, is looking to take on a greater role in the medical care of the creatures it helps. Freshfields’ new on-site vet will allow the centre to achieve this goal, while still continuing to care for the 550 dogs, cats, small animals and wildlife it cares for each day.

Andrew Taylor, Our Space, Your Place Project Coordinator and Planning Director at DWH North West, comments: “At David Wilson Homes, we are dedicated to building strong communities in areas surrounding our developments. Freshfields is a great local cause which does so much to help the region’s animals in need – last year it rehomed an astonishing 1,500 animals for example. We’re proud to have played a part in setting up the centre’s on site vet and hope that this new facility means Freshfields is able to offer even better care in the future.”

Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre is situated close to several of DWH North West’s developments, including Southport’s Pavilion Gardens, which offers great family, friendly homes with fantastic access to the beach and transport connections. DWH North West’s sister company Barratt Homes has also launched a development in the area surrounding Freshfields. Its new site, Victoria Mews, is set to provide the community with a range of two and three bedroom homes from £174,995. For information on either of these developments call 08443 34 87 82.
