Animal Rescues



Request detail: 

Under the Freedom of Information Act, please can you provide me with a database extract of all incidents involving animal rescues from November 2014 to February 2017, including, where possible, date and time of incident, location, type of animal involved and description of the incident (these last two may be the same field).

Response detail: 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request. Please find attached a spreadsheet that shows the detail of each animal rescue incident that Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service was called to between November 2014 to February 2017.

The type of animal rescued is recorded as either a ‘Livestock, e.g. horse, cow sheep, goat, pig, poultry, fish, exotic (llama/Ostrich), Deer etc.’, ‘Domestic e.g. Cat, dog, rodents, horse, bird etc.’ or ‘Bird’. More information may be supplied in the ‘incident description’ field.

Please note that the data supplied has been taken from our Data Warehouse which has recently been re-categorised to make the information more concise and easier to search and filter. This has resulted in some of the fields being altered though the overall results for the number of animal rescues has not changed.
