Capricorn is totally self-funded, having to raise over £250,000 each year to fund the Sanctuary which is run by a dedicated team of volunteers and 3 staff.
Since we became established we have taken in, on average, 3,000 animals in need each year, this means that we have saved, nursed back to health, re-homed or released around 90,000 animals and birds. We take in and nurse many animals that other rescue centres would not take in, we give long term care or treatment.
Capricorn has a non-euthanasia policy and whenever possible takes in and saves dogs that are on Death Row in council pounds in other parts of the country. Over 10,000 dogs are destroyed each year in council dog pounds in this country. Flintshire County Council is one of the few councils that have a non euthanasia policy and works closely with local rescue centres. Our aim is to establish a Re-homing Centre locally, where many more animal lives can be saved.
We are available for help and advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
It takes around £250,000 to run the rescue every year. We can accepted donations via Virgin Giving, Paypal, to any of our partners who have donation boxes, via Cheque (Made out to Capricorn Animal Rescue), in person at our rescue centre or any of our shops, by standing order and by Text;
