Each year we take in nearly 1000 unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats and this year we have seen yet another dramatic increase in the number of vulnerable animals needing our help due to the cost of living crisis.

It is vitally important to us that we provide our animals with the very best during their stay with us and their pens must be kept warm and comfortable at all times. During the winter months we use lots of donated duvets and blankets to help keep the animals warm and cosy, but our heating bills increase dramatically. There are 81 cat pens and 61 dog kennels to keep warm, which is set to cost a staggering £15,000 over the coming winter months.
