Wera Hobhouse MP praises ‘purrfect’ care at Bath Cats and Dogs Home

By Office of Wera Hobhouse, Jun 01, 2022 2:06

Bath MP Wera Hobhouse has praised Bath Cats and Dogs Home after a recent visit to their premises in Bath for an excellent record last year when over 500 animals were rehomed and over 130 stray animals were reunited with their owners.  Wera Hobhouse also praised the Home for their important animal welfare work helping to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome cats and dogs in Bath and North-East Somerset and parts of Somerset and Wiltshire. 

During Wera’s visit to Bath Cats and Dogs Home she met the hard-working staff and some furry residents. Rachel Jones, Bath Cats and Dogs Home’s, Chief Executive, showed Wera around the premises and talked about the successes and challenges she and her colleagues face. Rachel spoke about the varied reasons that animals come into the Home and shone a light on how the Home works to reunite lost pets with their owners and to rehome cats and dogs with local families.

Wera Hobhouse MP said: 

“I was deeply moved by the love, kindness and commitment that both staff and volunteers give to the animals. Watching the animal behaviour team working with animals who have experienced trauma was fascinating. 

“I saw the love and patience as well as time and zest given to those animals. The Home provides the right environment for animals to rebuild their trust in people as well as enjoying playing and training with the staff. Bath Cats and Dogs Home clearly has an excellent track record and I was honoured to be shown around. 

“If you can support the work that Bath Cats and Dogs Home does, please support them via their website www.bcdh.org.uk

“If you think you can give time and love to a four-legged, furry friend, please consider adoption. I look forward to building closer ties with Bath Cats and Dogs Home and supporting the valuable work they do”. 

Commenting after the visit Rachel said:

“During the last year Bath Cats and Dogs Home rescued over 700 animals. There are many diverse reasons why animals come into the Home. For instance, in 2021, we saw an increase in the number of lost and abandoned cats and dogs we took in. There were also cases where animals came from RSPCA Inspectors or the Police where there were serious incidents of neglect or abuse. Many cats and dogs also came into our care when their owners were no longer able to care for them.”  

Bath Cats and Dogs Home rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes cats and dogs who are unwanted, neglected or mistreated and takes in animals from Bath and North-East Somerset, parts of Somerset and Wiltshire. The charity is grateful to the local community for helping to support their animal welfare work, to find out more or donate visit www.bcdh.org.uk
