Always be able to collect the animal
Answer the phone 24 hours/day, 7 days/week
Be able to take in all animal species – read the ‘specialisation’ notes beside their contact details

 

Do ALWAYS:
Be polite, respectful and appreciative
Offer to help with the rescue in some way
Think about making a donation!
