A FLINTSHIRE animal rescue is hoping to have its new facilities up and running in March.

Jackson’s Animal Rescue, based in Mold, have been working hard to repair the run-down Capricorn Site which they took on in September last year.

Restrictions due to the coronavirus has meant work had to take a little longer than usual to keep in line with safety requirements, but volunteers are hopeful to be helping local cats requiring their care within a matter of weeks.

A spokesman for the charity said: “We have added lots of things to the wish list that we will need for the cattery including food and litter.

“We will be using Whiskas jelly food and biscuits for the cats (providing they don’t have specialist dietary needs) and so would love some donations of this!

“If you prefer to purchase elsewhere and drop off, you can take it to our Wirral centre (at Larton Liveries) or drop off here in Padeswood using our donation bin that is outside the front gate.

“If you have any other types of cat food going spare, we would always be grateful for this for the six plus feral cats that live here and are fed daily. We will be using wood pellet cat litter and would be so glad for donations of this too!”

The centre’s Amazon Wishlist, for those wanting to contribute an item that they need, can be found online at https://www.amazon.co.uk/hz/wishlist/genericItemsPage/1FIA0D02HPT3Q.

The coronavirus also hit the charity hardest in its fundraising efforts, unable to do what they usually would to finance their work.

A crowdfunding page was set up to help Jackson’s Place meet the cost of renovating the facilities they will need to help felines in need. It was well supported and surpassed its target.
