This year has been without shadow the hardest year we have faced as a charity, we have seen huge projected financial losses and had to make heart wrenching decisions.

With absolute dread I sat and watched the announcement with a sense of fear for the future, as an animal welfare charity we do not qualify for the majority of the support grants offered to charities. I know some of our supporters personally and have come to know many more of you in my time here and on occasion you have said “we will always give what we can”. I am afraid now as we close our retail and centre doors for another month of intense lockdown with all prospects of community fundraising gone, I need to ask.

Can you please help us? Can you support our dogs? It is without hesitation that I ask you to think about all of those happy tails we have shared with you, all the pictures of forever families, and that now in this very scary time to give once more to ensure that we are there for all those dogs we haven’t met yet.

Our staff got dressed and came to work today to do what they always do, be the hero’s that our dogs need, to give them hope of finding those families who will love them without question. Our teams know the situation and that our fundraising team are doing all they can to raise the vital funds needed to provide the care for our dogs. We need to get through this month’s lockdown and are asking you to be our hero’s, it costs £95,986.27 to run our four centres for a month and together we need to make that happen.

It may be a pound, £10, £100 or 1p every single penny will count!

Support our dogs, be our lockdown lifeline!
