Pets Corner is dedicated to helping local charities. Our store in Horsell, Woking supports Next Chapter Animal Rescue. We spoke to Regan Clarke at the charity to find out more about what they do to give rescue animals a fresh start in a safe new home.
What is Next Chapter Animal Rescue?
We are a fairly new charity which was founded in 2014. Our aim is to give animals a fresh start. Animals come from many different backgrounds and our job is to help them move on and adjust to a new home, and a life of love and safety.
What does Next Chapter Animal Rescue do?
We rehome animals in Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire by finding short or long term fosterers and families to adopt animals who have been rescued by us. All Next Chapter animals are neutered, microchipped and vaccinated before they are rehomed to our approved and vetted families. If animals arrive at Next Chapter Animal Rescue in a neglected state, we will also ensure they get the necessary treatment to return them to good health.
How many animals has Next Chapter Animal Rescue helped?
In 2015 we rescued and rehomed over 76 dogs, 56 cats and helped a further 40 other types of domestic companion animals to undergo veterinary treatment, including neutering operations. In addition, we have rehabilitated hundreds of wild birds including a partridge and two geese. We have even rescued a five-foot Python!
How does Pets Corner support Next Chapter Animal Rescue?
Pets Corner Horsell store donates their left over pet food – a necessity for all of our rescue animals and a huge benefit to ensuring we can continue to operate our service.
Where does Next Chapter Rescue's funding come from?
Our funding comes from the generosity of the general public and our network of fosterers who open their homes to love and care for our rescue animals. Without the adopters, fosterers and donators we simply couldn’t operate.
How does Next Chapter Rescue use this funding?
Our funds go towards neutering, microchipping and vaccinating all our animals before they are rehomed, as well as paying for any vet bills for animals that come to us in a state of neglect.
Next Chapter is primarily a foster-based rescue service so, while we are searching for foster space and suitable homes, funding also goes towards kennel providers in the Guildford and Bracknell area.
