A regular gift of £5 per month would help the centres buy in food and medicine, fuel to rescue the animals and money to pay for vets bills and the general running costs.

Helping animals in need

We need your help

Whatever route a donation takes, it’s used to support animals in need of care and attention by supporting smaller animal charities throughout the UK where rescue centres, shelters and re-housing projects need help. Foundation money is used by charities to help in such areas as fund-raising, vets bills and capital projects, thus allowing these local organisations to concentrate on looking after their animals.

Only those charities with a declared ethical policy regarding animal care and re-homing will be supported by the Foundation.

Our success stories

Animal rescue centres we’ve helped say…

When Royston Animal Welfare needed funds to cover the cost of running cat and dog pens they asked the Animal Rescue Foundation for help – and were very pleased to receive a total of £10,500 over two years.

Royston Animal Welfare

We received £2,000 – a fab donation. This went a long way to cover the neutering costs of a couple of large feral cat colonies we were trapping and getting in at the time. Obviously vet bills are our biggest expense, so this was a great help to us.

Suffolk Animal Rescue

The charity was delighted to receive £4,000 from the Animal Rescue Foundation in April 2013 towards establishing a dedicated area for dogs in the Isolation Unit to get free running exercise and fresh air, and reduce any anxiety of being kennel bound while waiting for health clearance.
