‘Changing Lives’ at Carrington’ is a new, not for profit, initiative at the popular Carrington Riding Centre.
Organisers want to help abandoned animals such as cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters etc and then re-home them to suitable families.
Stables are currently being converted into appropriate accommodation for the animals with the intention to be up and fully running by the end of the month.
Sharon, owner of the centre said, “We know that a lot of people benefit in every way from being around animals so we will be encouraging some members of the wider to community to volunteer to help with looking after the animals”.
“Our college (in association with Trafford College) is starting a Level 1 City & Guilds animal care course in Sept which will enable 16-19-year olds to acquire an important recognised qualification in this industry. We are also staring an alternative provision which will be offering daily provisions involving these animals to you people with special needs or who don’t quite fit into mainstream school”.
“We feel very excited about this project as we feel it will benefit so many people and of course the animals”.
The centre is very much in need of equipment such as cages, runs, blankets, toys, feed etc and of course we are in need of funding.
