Each year Gables Farm Dogs and Cats Home takes in nearly 1000 unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats and this year they have seen an increase in the number of vulnerable puppies and kittens needing their help. It is vitally important that they provide their animals with the very best during their stay with them and their pens must be kept warm and comfortable at all times. During the winter months they use lots of donated duvets and blankets to help keep the animals warm and cosy, but the heating bills increase dramatically. There are 81 cat pens and 82 dog kennels to keep warm, which costs over £5000 each year.
General Manager Claire Sparkes said: Last year was the first time we asked for help with our heating costs and we were blown away by the generosity of our amazing supporters. We are currently caring for some very vulnerable dogs and cats that are underweight and in some cases completely bald from neglect so we are asking for your help again.
If you can help by make a donation to the Winter Heating Appeal, they would be so grateful for any contributions. Your donation will help them to improve the lives of rescue dogs and cats in your local area.
