Animals In Distress (A.I.D.)



IF YOU FIND A DOG DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY PHONE A
CHARITY TO TAKE THE ANIMAL IN. MOST ARE USUALLY FULL TO CAPACITY AND THE DOG MIGHT HAVE AN OWNER


"This is how you can personally help the animal”

  •  Check if it belongs to any of your neighbours.
  • Take it to your local vet and they will check to see if the dog is Micro chipped. If it is, they will contact the owner. If it’s not, then also go to the local Police Station as owners might go there when they loose a dog.
  • Also take a look in the lost pages of Animal Charities and Facebook Lost & Found pages.
  • If you can keep the dog for a few days, then put a poster at your local vet, Police Station, Shops and also send a photo and details to animal charities...
  • If you cannot keep the dog at all, then contact animal charities click here to see whether the dog can be taken in or if they could suggest as to where the dog could be placed. 

WHY DO YOU SOMETIMES GET A NO WHEN YOU CONTACT A CHARITY REGARDING TAKING IN A STRAY DOG:
In our particular case,  if someone contacts us to take in a dog and we say ‘sorry but can’t take it’, then we will always offer you advise as to what you should do and also offer you our directory where we list several charities,  which you could contact to see if they can help you.  
When we say no, it is because we are full at home, our foster homes and our shelter and of course, you are not the only person to contact us on that particular day. As an average we receive 5 emails/phone calls for help every single day regarding taking in stray dogs, as well as people on Facebook asking for help with dogs and or cats. So please do not think badly of us because we could not help on this or another particular occasion.

If you find a dog or have a serious situation that has occurred, or you need help in getting your dogs back to the UK then please email us at: animalsindistress2007@yahoo.co.uk  or phone us on (0034)626942427 and we will do our very best to try help you in some way.
