Cotswold animal shelters: What happens to animals during lockdown?

What happens to rescued animals during a pandemic? We visited some of our best-loved shelters across the Cotswolds to see what they - and their carers - have been up to
The coronavirus crisis had a huge impact on our animal shelters. Unable to have face-to-face viewings, many animals in their care couldn’t go through the usual adoption process, putting great strain on the charities’ finances and denying the animals the chance of a new loving home. Also, of course, all the charity shops run by the shelters had to be closed in March and fundraising events cancelled, so cutting off other essential sources of income.
Now, more than ever, the shelters need our help, so please do consider making a donation... and maybe even giving a forever home to one of their charges!
