Towels and tins of cat food and biscuits

We receive fewer donated tins of meat for our cats than for the dogs. Our food bill is very high so donations of tinned meat and biscuits for the cats will be much appreciated.

Dog Chews

We need rawhide chews. They are great for the dogs, giving them something to do and reducing stress.


haystack

Hay or straw

We will be grateful to receive donations of hay or straw to use in the small animal accommodation.

newspapers

Newspapers

We continually need supplies of newspaper and will be glad to receive donations.


Your help is very much appreciated.

Our funds have been depleted due to increasing costs and so we are launching a special Golden Oldie donations appeal highlighting the plight of elderly pets that are brought to us for rehoming.

Success Stories Wanted

Success

Owners who have adopted a pet often email the Centre and tell us how things are progressing. It is always encouraging to see animals happily settled and we thought it would be nice to share some with you via the web site.

Hence, we have started a 'success' section, in which owners contribute a few words and pictures telling us how their pet is settling in the new home.

If you feel that you may have something to share, please email the centre with your experiences.

To see the sort of thing we want, see the 'SUCCESS' page here .
