Make a donation
Like all animal charities we receive no government funding and so we rely entirely on the generosity of the animal-loving public for our income. There are many ways you can make a contribution towards our work. Whichever way you choose – thank you!
(And if you are a tax payer please always remember to choose the GiftAid option).
If you would rather give goods than money we have an Amazon Wishlist
of bits that we could use at the centre. You can choose how much to spend – every little bit helps. The goods can be ordered and paid for online and they will be delivered directly to us. The list includes some essential items, but it’s also a great way for us to get some special treats for the animals.
Please consider signing up for “Easyfundraising” before shopping on Amazon, that way we automatically get an extra donation each time you shop there.
Annoushka is our long stay resident. She has been here too long now to consider asking her to move out! To help fund her everyday live and give her the occasional treat you could give a monthly sponsorship for her.
You can set up a regular donation on VirginMoneyGiving and when prompted leave a message saying “sponsor Annoushka” – Thank you!
We can convert your unwanted goods into our income. If you are having a clear out to make space for next season’s purchases, or are just looking to get rid of that unwanted present or unused gadget, please think of us. If it’s been well used and should go in the bin, please do bin it! But if you are holding on to it because “it’s too good to throw away” then please sent it to us! You can deliver your donations to either of our shop during opening hours. You will be certain to get a great big “thank you”!

If you are in a business associated with animal welfare, or just because you are an animal lover – why not consider becoming one of our business partners? You could donate goods and/or services to the charity. Or you could offer to make a donation as a percentage of sales of a particular product? How about donating a prize to one of our events or raffles? Or consider sponsoring part of our facilities in exchange for a prominent sign? Please get in touch if you think you could help and would like to be part of our team.
Business partner enquiry: firstname.lastname@example.org
Having said that we get no government funding, there is a very important way that they offer some help to charities. And that is GiftAid: the promise to give us 25% of the value of your donation if you are a UK taxpayer.
So if, for example, you are a taxpayer and you donate £100 to us and sign a GiftAid form, we can then reclaim £25 back from HMRC. If you are sending a cheque in the post please download and complete our GiftAid declaration form.
If you donate via VirginMoneyGiving they will reclaim the tax on our behalf.
If you are raising money through a sponsor form, please encourage your supporters to give their address and postcode and tick the GiftAid box. We can only make the claim if we have the signed paperwork – so please help us to claim every penny. After all, it is tax that YOU have already paid in!
