Animal shelter in London at risk of closing due to coronavirus crisis

Description

London, May 22 (EFE/EPA).- (Camera: Neil Hall) The Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) provides a safe home for rescued wildlife who are sick, injured, or orphaned. They rehabilitate animals and birds back into to the wild or provide them with a permanent home. The service is closed due to coronavirus. It does not qualify for government relief to help with the running cost and can't get local council assistance as a charity. Running costs between 10,000 and 12,000 British pounds (about 12,000 to 14,000 euros) per month are usually provided by donations and a now closed cafe. As a result the centre is in danger of being closed. FOOTAGE OF THE SHELTER.
