At first, Schwar ran the hospital from her home. However, due to demand, she had to find a bigger, more appropriate setting. As a result, the number of animals she and the hospital can accommodate has now risen to more than 200 at any one time.
Now, veterinary staff are able to deal with every animal that crosses the hospital’s doors. In fact, not a single one is denied treatment if it is needed. Consequently, a team of volunteers and professional vets work tirelessly to ensure every critter receives the utmost care.
What’s more, the charity covers a large swathe of southern England – including some parts of London – and people often find animals in the most extraordinary of locations throughout the region. One such discovery came in 2012 in the east of London, at Canary Wharf.
