Pets' Corner Emergency Fund

Longford Park Pets' Corner urgently needs funds to upgrade our security for the animals and also for ongoing costs, vet fees, etc.

New stretch target

If we can double our initial target of £5,000 then we can install far better CCTV systems that will be activated by movement and which can alert our committee members and the police 24 hours per day. We can also think about more secure designs for the animal enclosures.

If you can see this message it means we've already reached our first target. Thanks so much for your support - if we reach our stretch target then there's so much more that we can do for our animals.

Project aim

Longford Park Pets' Corner urgently needs funds to upgrade our security for the animals and also for ongoing costs, vet fees, etc.

About the project

Following a recent unfortunate incident at Pets' Corner, we have decided to invest in security measures. Also, Gandalf the goat now has a new friend (Frodo) and we wish to raise enough money for vets' bills and improving the pets' environment for at least the next 12 months.

Since we took it over from the Council in October 2014, all of the work has been done by volunteers, and they have had to contribute their own money to keep Pets' Corner going. We now have goats, ducks, chickens, rabbits, and guinea pigs.

We know that the local community of Stretford, Chorlton, and surrounding areas want us to stay open, and we want to keep animals there and to make sure that they are safe. So many people have told us that they remember coming to this area as children, and that they now bring their children to Pets' Corner to see the animals. We want to have a collection of happy, well-fed and SAFE animals, of which the local community can be proud.

Please help us with a donation - no amount is too large or too small. Thank you. (There is also a collection box in the Cafe in Longford Park for small contributions of cash.)
