In August last year, one of our vital animal ambulances was sadly stolen and was never reported as found or returned to us. But this week we are delighted to announce that, thanks to the generous fundraising by our supporters, we have been able to receive our new, replacement ambulance.
Our animal ambulances are so important to our work as we rely on them to help us transport the hundreds of sick and injured animals we rescue every year. We were devastated when our trusty Suzuki Carrier was stolen.
To ensure we could get back on the road as soon as possible, we put out an appeal to our supporters, and we were overwhelmed with the incredible, generous response.
Mayhew’s CEO, Caroline Yates, said: “From all of us at Mayhew, we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who kindly donated to help raise funds to replace our stolen ambulance.”
“Mayhew ambulances have been on the road helping thousands of animals since 1925, so being an ambulance down had a big impact on the number of animals we were able to rescue. The response we received from our amazing supporters was incredible and we are very grateful to everyone who helped us in a time of need.”
“We also want to say a special thank you to the wonderful Myers family who generously donated a large sum towards our new animal ambulance in memory of their beloved dogs, past and present.”
From this week our new ambulance has been back on the road rescuing animals. The new larger and safer ambulance is an electronic model which will help save us money in the future by being more efficient, as well as being exempt from various road taxes and congestion charges.
