Christmas Fundraising Twitter

Our York Animal Home needs your support more than ever before. There are many different ways you can get involved this Christmas to ensure that we can help as many animals as possible. Every donation will help us continue our work long into the future. Thank you.

  • Send the York Animal Home a Christmas donation. Every penny will directly benefit our animals and help us give them a wonderful, merry Christmas.

Donate to our Christmas Appeal

  • Send one of our animals a Christmas gift via our Amazon wishlist! There are lots of festive toys and treats to choose from, and they are delivered directly to the York Animal Home. Easy peasy!
