Adoptober FB Fundraiser Hi Res

In 2020, during a global pandemic, we found forever homes for 279 animals. Rehoming throughout this time was challenging, but we were never going to let our animals down. In 2021, so far we have rehomed 133 dogs, cats and small furries. However we are seeing more and more animals staying with us for longer than we'd like.

We need your help to find happy endings for our animals, and to ensure that our long stay residents get the best possible care.

Are you looking to adopt? Do you have a friend who is ready to offer their home to a rescue animal? Can you spare a few pounds to help us care for our long stay residents?

This month we will be focusing on the adoption process and spreading the #AdoptDontShop message. We will be telling our animals' stories through photos, videos and messages from our staff who look after them.

It currently costs around £1,400 per day to run our Branch. We would love to try and raise this throughout #Adoptober.

Thank you for your endless love and support.
