Just Whippets Rescue & Covid-19
We are still working hard at Just Whippets Rescue, but as expected, a much slower rate. Very unfortunately, the Charity have had to take the following measures not only for our Volunteers but also the day to day restraints on us the Trustees. The Trustees each have their own restraints which vary from caring for an elderly relative and members of the NHS Front Line staff. The Charity is still dedicated to rescuing whippets & X's, but like everyone else, have to stick to the UK Government Guidelines.
The Charity will not be conducting any home checks in the near future, as the trustees has agreed, this would potentially putting people at too greater risk of catching the virus. Any home checks will be done online, with a virtual tour of adoptees/fosterers' homes.
Just Whippets Rescue has a policy for adoptees adopting (& fosterers) any whippets, with the correct procedures will be put in place.
Any items sold via our shop will package and handled in a safe & hygienic way. Returning goods will be opened three days after receiving and money will be paid into your account within 14 days.
At this point in time, please DO NOT send any donated dogs clothes & accessories to us. This will risk the safety of the volunteers and trustees here at Just Whippets Rescue.
The Trustees will take each surrender request, case by case. Paramountly the safety and health of our wonderful volunteers is key.
Any finical donation will be much appreciated during this difficult time, to pay for the on going care of whippets in our care; the Charity had to pay for during lockdown.
In the meantime, we will still answer emails and offer help but please appreciate the response might be delayed. Please stay safe and thank you for your understanding.
Thank you all for your patience.
