Animals In Need is an organisation dedicated to rescuing sick, injured, trapped and distressed wild and domestic animals. We provide veterinary treatment where necessary, care for and rehabilitate animals until they can be released or re-homed. Animals In Need was set up in 1990, the aim of the organization is alleviate suffering in animals.
In the years Animals In Need has been established, we have acquired a fully equipped animal ambulance, two water crafts and trailers for transportation, plus the usual first aid essentials. Although our first aid equipment is adequate it is regularly updated to current standards.
Animals In Need is a rescue organization run by 8 members of staff and a team of volunteers, attending animal casualties in the Northamptonshire area. We attend to both domestic and wild animals, and in 1999 were asked by Northamptonshire Police to work with them attending road traffic accidents and out of hours emergencies.
Feeding and caring for the injured animals we rescue is most important especially in cases of young orphaned birds, which need hand feeding every hour from dawn till dusk. Also young hedgehogs which haven’t reached the required weight to survive hibernation over the winter months, need to be kept warm and fed as do swans that have incurred injuries, many from fishing tackle that they have swallowed or become entangled in.
Our continued dedication to the animals has resulted with us teaming up with the amazing dog trainer Nathan Watson. Nathan successfully runs Restart4Rescues and this programme is offered to anyone who rehomes a dog from us here to help provide support and information in those first important few weeks when settling a rescue dog into your home. www.dogrehab.co.uk/restart-for-rescues/
