Like many other individuals, organisations and business we, at BCWR have found the last 12 months difficult, damaging and frustrating.
We have had to find new ways of working, including volunteer management, vet appointments, foster arrangements, fundraising and of course adoptions.
With the Government’s latest announcements yesterday, many are seeing a ray of hope in what has been a dreadful 12 month period.
EVERYONE I know has been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic in one way or another.
We cannot remain in this indefinite limbo and need to start planning our own road map out of this lockdown .
As a rescue, as we navigate our way out of lock down we must not undo all the amazing advances that together we globally have achieved in fighting this virus.
We are now looking at being able to accept new adoption enquiries in the near future but this will be done with the same caution we engaged with, between the lock downs.
All we ask at this time is for your patience, kindness and understanding.
We currently have a waiting list ( from last year) with almost 100 families wanting to adopt from us.
During the last 12 months we have found some new ways of working that we actually quite like.
They are effective and we will be embracing these changes and continue to work in these new found ways.
Here is how we expect the next 12 months to look @BCWR
- All adoption enquiries must be initially done online via a link on our website.
- All pre adoption assessments will be done by Charlotte our VOLUNTEER adoption coordinator.
Charlotte works for NHS ENGLAND is currently working really hard around the clock to support the Covid-19 vaccination programme nationally. So please be patient.
- All adoption donations/ fees must be paid by card when you visit the rescue.
- We are still currently only allowing one adult to visit the rescue at any one time BY STRICT APPOINTMENT.
This is to reduce the risks of infection and transmission of the virus.
- Temperatures of every volunteer and visitor will be taken on arrival and strict hand hygiene protocols must be adhered to.
- Any visitors to the rescue must wear a face covering at all times. Sadly we are not able to take into account exemptions at this time. This may be reviewed as the vaccination programme is further rolled out.
- We are hoping in late summer to host a small, safe event at the rescue.
The details of this are currently unknown but please keep an eye out for further details.
As things evolve and develop we will keep you posted… in the meantime,
❤ Be safe
