Paws for Kids

We provide Domestic Abuse support to keep people and their pets safe

Charity Registration No. 1084861


Thank you for visiting my Just Giving page.

In conjunction with Slimming World, I am taking part in a 6 week Slim for Good campaign and as such, taking part in a 6 week sponsored slim, with the proceeds going to my chosen charity Paws for Kids. For those of you unaware of Paws for Kids, it is a North West charity that rescues family pets from homes where there is domestic abuse. Shelters and refuges can home women and children, but not pets and as such, the pet often gets left behind at home, in a dangerous environment, or Mum won't separate her children from their pet and will stay in the home to be subjected to further violence.

Paws for Kids rescues the pets and fosters them out on a short term basis to volunteers like myself until Mum and kids can find a new home.

I have fostered dogs for 12 months now and it gives me a great sense of comfort knowing I am helping a family out and keeping an animal safe.

I have been a member of Slimming world for 2 years now and experienced a great weight loss. By taking part in Slim For Good, I will be rasining money for a fabulous cause whilst motivating myself to be healthy and fit.
