World Spay Day – 23rd February

World Spay Day is here and it’s more important than ever that the benefits of Spaying and Neutering are made clear.

If you haven’t yet had your cat or dog neutered whether it be due to finances, time, or because you’ve been told you don’t need to, we would like to help!

We are strong believers in animals being neutered as soon as possible to avoid health problems later in life, unwanted litters when there are so many animals without homes already, or frustrating behavioural issues.

That’s why we are jumping on board this World Spay Day and running two separate promotions!

Please see the poster for all the details.

All monies raised will help support our vital animal welfare work.

We’ve been truly touched by the offers of support we’ve received in these difficult times, to help us make sure our animals remain safe and well. This competition is just the latest way we are trying to raise money for our animals – if you would like to enter, it will make a difference – thank you.

Valentine’s Photo Competition now closed

Our Valentine’s Photo Competition has now closed. Many thanks to all the people who entered, many of whom donated much more than the £2 entry fee.

Our category judges will be hard at work – and given how gorgeous all the entries are, their task will not be an easy one.

We will notify the winners before the end of February and all the winning entries will be on our website and Facebook about the same time.

Kind sponsors donate over £200-worth of prizes

From quality food and bird feeding hampers, to pet portraits and photo sessions, kind sponsors have donated over £200-worth of prizes for our Valentine’s photo competition.

Many thanks to:

Bushfire Portraits

Su-Bridge Pet Supplies

Charnwood Milling

Naturediet Pet Foods Ltd

And a huge thank you to Ian, who has telephoned a host of local companies to persuade them to support us.

All monies raised will go directly to the animals in our care.

Enter here to celebrate the furry, feathery, or scaly love of your life.
