In accordance with Government guidance, companion animal rescue and rehoming organisations can remain open to provide for the ongoing needs of animals in their care. This document provides guidance for rescue, rehoming centres and organisations that are working during the Covid-19 crisis and in the context of Government restrictions in respect of social distancing and essential travel.
The Guidance is in four sections, covering:
• The admission (intake) of animals into a rescue environment
• The care of animals whilst in a rescue environment
• Veterinary care of animals in a rescue environment or to be rehomed
• The rehoming (adoption) of animals, including temporary placement in a foster home (or equivalent).
