Thank you for your interest in sponsoring a Blue Cross pet. We've had to make the tough decision to temporarily stop pet sponsorships, as the coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on our ability to rehome pets. As you can imagine, this is incredibly disappointing for us as matching homeless pets with loving new owners is what we exist to do, but we are committed to working within the social distancing restrictions to keep our teams and the public safe.
Initially we had to stop searching for new homes for our pets altogether, however we have worked hard to find a way to continue finding new families for them that meets government restrictions.
We’re really pleased that we are now able to rehome a small number of pets again. We are also continuing to take pets in crisis, including those admitted via our hospitals, into our care.
This stopping and starting has meant our intake of pets has not been the smooth process it normally is, and this has had an impact on the way Blue Cross pet sponsorship works. We’re sorry if you’ve had any difficulties and thank you for your understanding as we work in these unprecedented circumstances.
