Welcome to St Francis: St. Francis Animal Rescue
Welcome to St FrancisSt. Francis Animal Rescue has been running for many years and is well known around South Shields for the work it does with animals. The charity shop on Stanhope Road (see our funding page) is always busy with people looking to help raise money for the animals and picking themselves up a bargain!
Ann runs the Rescue with the help of other voluntary workers, particularly Linda Mercer who has the larger cattery in her back garden. Linda Tuffield now lives in rural Northumberland but continues to help and rasie funds for St Francis.
St Francis is entirely voluntary, with no kennels and only two catteries, one at Ann Kirton\'s house and the other at Linda Mercer\'s; a lot of the animals are cared for by voluntary fosterers in their own homes.
The battle continues. Animals are still mistreated and neglected, quite often through ignorance rather than malice. St Francis\' Animal Rescue continues to help by trying to educate, giving advice and practical help. Do you love animals?
