It’s a Wrap: Thank you for supporting our Winter Appeal!

A huge thank you to everyone who supported our Winter Appeal, your generosity means we can continue to be there for the pets and people who need us.

Your support has helped dogs like Bagel, who almost didn’t make it, but will soon celebrate one happy year in her forever home, and people like Susan who would’ve had to give up her pets without the help of our pet foodbanks.

Demand for our support is rising dramatically each year. In 2023, between January and July, our pet food banks distributed 414,316 meals, the equivalent of providing vital food for one animal every ten minutes.  

We’ve also seen a dramatic increase in surrender requests; in July we had a 236% increase in requests from October 2022.   

On top of this, there are more and more animals coming to us with established behavioural issues or severe health problems. This not only drives up our cost of care but adds to the labour and emotional burden of our kennel team, vets and dog trainers.  

It costs nearly £3 million to keep our doors open each year and we rely almost entirely on the generosity of our supporters.  

This year, the kindness of individuals and businesses helped us to raise over £100,000 in vital funds.  

This included £95k raised by individuals and £8.5k from nine businesses. We were delighted to welcome 138 new regular donors, and our hearts were truly warmed to receive £5000 from fundraising activities such as Christmas wreath making and school fairs.  

Your continued support, throughout our Winter Appeal and beyond, is invaluable and allows us to be there for animals like Bagel, Piper, Pablo, Ziva and many, many others.  

From our family to yours, thank you.
