Our urgent appeal - If there was ever a time that we needed your support, it is now.

Many of us are facing uncertainty and tough times ahead, but if you are in a position to help us with a financial donation, large or small, that would be amazing, and truly the best way to help us right now.

We have sadly had to close our doors to the public for the time being, meaning we're seeing our income fall, and know that it will continue to do so due to the cancellation of all of our fundraising events and activities. This comes at a time when our costs are set to rise, as we expect to see an increased demand for our help to support local pets in need as the current lock down continues.

What hasn’t changed for us is that there are still many animals in Bristol needing rescuing and looking after – dogs, cats and other domestic animals as well as taking in emergencies, stray animals and injured wildlife. We want to reassure you that our dedicated staff team are here every day, ensuring that the animals we look after are safe and loved.

We promise to be here for animals in need

We are continuing to provide the best possible care and love for our cats, dogs, smallies, exotics, and injured and ill wildlife. We promise to ensure that they are safe and loved for as long as they need us. But due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we face many challenges ahead, including but not limited to a huge loss in income resulting from:

  • The closure of our site to the public
  • Cancelled fundraising events and activities
  • Loss of income from adoptions

At the same time, we expect to see a big increase in the need for our support, especially for our rehoming and outreach services.

If you are able to give a donation today, you’ll help us ensure that all our animals continue getting everything they need to be happy and healthy, from expert care, to love and cuddles.
