We need YOUR help this winter

This winter we are making a special request for donations. You have all been so generous to us during the Covid lockdown with donating food, treats and toys for the animals in our care and for buying the few extra items we have needed from our Amazon Wishlist. So much so that our cupboards are currently full with food which should last us through the winter!

 

Even during lockdown, our small Animal Care team continued working tirelessly to care for the animals in our care, admit new animals and rehome some pets to their new forever homes. All the animals that come in to the Centre get a vet’s health check, they are neutered, vaccinated, microchipped where possible, treated for worms and fleas and they receive any other medical care they may have – this means our monthly vet bills are around £2000, so that’s over £14,000 since lockdown began in Scotland!

Unfortunately, due to the Covid restrictions, we had to cancel all of our fundraising events for this year and we also had to temporarily close our charity shops in Galashiels, Hawick, Duns and Kelso. Our events and shops are a vital source of income for the charity which normally helps cover the cost of our vet bills, however without having this source of funds and with very little income, we need to find an alternative method of raising the money!

 

So, this brings us to our special donation request – we would kindly ask that, if you are considering donating food, treats or toys this Christmas, that you might alternatively consider donating towards our vet bills.
