Page Visits 15624
Established in 1886, The Mayhew is one of the busiest and most effective rescue centres in London, helping thousands of animals escape from a life of cruelty and neglect each year. We provide shelter and care for cats, dogs, rabbits and when the need arises, for a wide variety of other animals. The Mayhew Animal Home and Humane Education Centre strives to tackle the companion animal welfare crisis from every possible angle.
We are pro-active and continually work to assist both animals and their carers with educational programmes and initiatives.
•To take in and care for unwanted and abused animals and re-home them with responsible and caring owners. We believe that animals, as living creatures, are entitled to legal, moral and ethical consideration, and have a value beyond economic measure.
•To prevent unwanted animals through our neutering initiatives and community animal care projects.
•To promote respect and compassion for animals through our hands on work, campaigns and education programmes.
•To ensure that no *healthy animal in our care is ever put to sleep. Our Core Values are:
•To offer the highest standard of companion animal care.
•To re-home our animals to the best possible homes efficiently and provide ongoing support and advice for new owners.
•To provide animal accommodation that is home like, enriched, stimulating, stress free and comfortable.
•To encourage a non-judgmental approach to those people needing help with their animals as receiving information about an animal in need is critical.
•To meet all requests for help with a prompt and professional response.
•To raise awareness about the needs of companion animals to protect both the animals of today and the future. *"Healthy" encompasses both the physical and psychological well-being of the animals in our care.
An animal with a severe untreatable physical ailment may be given a dignified end to its life in order to alleviate its suffering. We may also make the difficult decision to euthanise an animal that displays serious aggression or other unpredictable psychological behaviours making it a danger to itself, to other animals or to human beings. In all cases, a decision to euthanise an animal is taken only after making a thorough and professional assessment of an animal's prospects for recovery and rehabilitation.
