Anyone who knows me well will know how much of a couch potato I've become. They'll also know how much I love animals and how strong my stance is on veganism and compassion for all! That's why I am going to run a a half marathon (13.1 miles) with just 13 weeks of training! I'll be raising money for the incredible charity: The Retreat Animal Rescue, based in Kent, U.K.
They are a registered charity, a not-for-profit organisationl. All funds raised go to the welfare of the animals, at the Retreat. Where possible animals are re-homed in permanent, loving homes. The Retreat operates a genuine no-kill policy. Their sites accommodate their main rescue centre andw ildlife hospital to deal with most animal intakes and emergencies.
The number of animals being cared for by The Retreat is over 1,000 at any one time.
Some of their residents include: ex-race horses, ex-riding school ponies, injured live export sheep, cows saved from slaughter, ex-petting farm goats, injured birds, ferrets, Christmas turkeys, worn-out battery hens, disabled non-releasable wildlife, fish, small domestics, old or feral and FIV cats, and dogs who have failed behaviour tests in other dog homes.
PLEASE DIG DEEP and help me to raise money for them so that they can keep on rescuing animals and providing the love and care that they deserve!
