Introducing SuPAWters - the monthly giving scheme for the York Animal Home. Every penny you donate will go directly to supporting the work we do in York, Harrogate and surrounding areas, caring for the animals in the York Animal Home.

For a small monthly donation of £10 for a dog, £5 for a cat or £3 for a small animal you'll get:

  • A copy of our "SuPAWters News" - The exclusive bi-monthly email newsletter for our monthly supporters letting you know about some of the animals your donation has helped.
  • A SuPAWter certificate to display on your fridge or in your workplace
  • SuPAWter welcome letter
  • SuPAWter postcard featuring one of our rehomed animals
  • Your name on the SuPAWter wall at the home.
  • Invites to our annual SuPAWter evening and possibly other events.
  • The first 100 SuPAWters will also receive an exclusive SuPAWter enamel pin badge created just for SuPAWters of the York Animal Home and limited to 100.

Sign up today and help support the York Animal Home! It's never been easier to make a difference.
