The ambulance was never found but the charity’s supporters have now raised over £17,000 for a new electronic model.
The ambulances are vital in the Mayhew’s work and help to transport hundreds of sick and injured animals. Staff were devasted when their trusty Suzuki Carrier was stolen but have received an incredible response to their appeal.
Mayhew’s CEO, Caroline Yates, said, “From all of us at Mayhew, we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who kindly donated to help raise funds to replace our stolen ambulance.
“Mayhew ambulances have been on the road helping thousands of animals since 1925, being an ambulance down had a big impact on the number of animals we were able to rescue. The response we received from our amazing supporters was incredible and we are grateful to everyone who helped us in a time of need.
“We also want to say a special thank you to the wonderful Myers family who generously donated a large sum towards our new animal ambulance in memory of their beloved dogs, past and present.”
The new ambulance will be on the road from this week and as it’s electronic, it will help to save the charity money in future.
