Rescue needs rescuing

Just received this urgent appeal:

On Saturday 21st November The Animal Rescue & Rehabilitation Society was given an eviction notice to leave the premises where we keep the animals. We have approximately 4 weeks to move the current animals out of the kennels and put them into temporary accommodation. We currently have cats and dogs with uncertain futures, plus the stray dogs of Stratford-on-Avon have nowhere to go.

I now have 6 dogs and 2 cats currently left at the kennels.  Two extra dogs are on trials in their new homes and one is hopefully going to its new home in a few weeks. Two six month old kittens are in short-term foster and another kitten is at my house in Rugby recovering from flu.

Is there anyone out there who can offer my rescue animals temporary accommodation until I can get something more permanent?

I am looking to buy some land/stables within the Stratford-on-Avon District, which covers a huge area and have been for some time, but it's just become a major priority to save the animals I now have.  Plus I now have nowhere to take the stray dogs.

If you think you can help in any way, either by spreading the word of the appeal, if you know of someone who could fund the building work for a new kennels to be built, land that might be for sale (I don't have a great amount but reasonable offers), foster homes for the dogs or cats or anything you may think might help in our fight to save T.A.R.R.S, please e-mail with your responses to t.a.r.r.s@hotmail.co.uk

Foster homes need to have no other animals in them as some of the dogs and cats are not use to other dogs or cannot live with other animals.

This would be a temporary basis of 6 weeks or over.
