The Future of the Cedar Centre
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: It is with deep sadness and regret that after almost 20 years, the Cedar Centre has made the difficult and heart breaking decision to close. This decision is the result of several important factors, including the current economic climate, the loss of a key member of staff, the increasing costs of providing our animals with the essential care and safe shelter they need and a shortage of volunteers. The Cedar Centre will continue to care for the 25+ animals currently in our care but will be making urgent appeals for as many homes as we can find, particularly for our 8 dogs. We are all very sad to be announcing the closure of the centre which has provided much needed care and shelter for countless injured, unwanted, neglected and abandoned animals in central Portugal over many years. We are aware of the desperate need for a facility of this kind in this area and hope that our friends and supporters will understand how difficult this decision has been. The time scale for closure will be over 12-18 months and will be managed by Barry & Lorraine, together with our small team of volunteers. We would be grateful if you could all share this announcement which may help us to rehome some of our animals. We are so sorry that the Cedar Centre can no longer accept new animals into our care.
The details of all animals currently at the Cedar Centre can be found on our website : www.thecedarcentre.com.
For any enquires regarding animals available for adoption from the Cedar Centre, please contact Lynne on 911523919 or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'd like to say a huge thank you to all our volunteers for the time, care and dedication you continue to show our animals and to our friends for your support and donations over the years, without your help the centre would not have been able to continue for so long.
Please be assured that whilst managing the difficult and challenging process involved with the closure of the Cedar Centre, we will continue to provide the essential and vital care required by our wonderful animals and will do everything in our powers to re-home them all in the best homes possible.
Best wishes and thank you from all at The Cedar Centre
It is important to note that all of the animals that are in the care of the Cedar Centre will be cared for until they are either adopted or pass away from natural causes. We do not put any of our animals down unless it is for clinical reasons or on the advice of our vet.
