Business Profile

St. Francis Animal Rescue is well known around South Shields for the work it does with animals. Our main priority is the collection of sick and injured animals, providing veterinary treatment to rehabilitate them. We are an entirely voluntary organisation, with no kennels and one cattery.

St. Francis Animal Rescue has been running for many years and is well known around South Shields for the work it does with animals. The charity shop on Stanhope Road is always busy with people looking to help raise money for the animals and picking themselves up a bargain!

Ann Kirton coordinates the Rescue with help from a team of volunteers who do everything from running the shop to fostering ducklings in their bath tub!

St Francis is entirely voluntary, with no kennels and only one cattery; a lot of the animals are cared for by voluntary fosterers in their own homes.

The battle continues. Animals are still mistreated and neglected, quite often through ignorance rather than malice. St Francis' Animal Rescue continues to help by trying to educate, giving advice and practical help. Do you love animals? Can you help us?

St Francis Animal Rescue relies entirely on public support to fund its work in helping sick and abandoned animals get back on their paws!

St Francis promotes animal welfare and offers help and advice to anyone who needs it on the importance of neutering cats and dogs to prevent unnecessary and unwanted litters being born. They also provide financial support towards neutering and vouchers. They will also try and assist in rehoming, although loving, life-time homes are very difficult to find.

St Francis first priority is to rescue sick, injured and abandoned animals. They also trap and neuter feral colonies of cats and test these animals for FELV and FIV. This ensures that the trap-neuter-return scheme releases only healthy animals back into their own environment whilst preventing more litters being born. If a cat is found to be domesticated, every effort is made to rehome it.
