We know all too well that times are very tough on everyone, and if you rely solely on donations to survive a small charity like us will go down the pan, and the strays that are relying so heavily on us to not let them down, we simply could not afford to sit back and give up.
So, we sit back and had to rethink how could we increase the help we were providing for the strays without having to rely solely on financial support? We already were struggling paying the huge costs of transports, vet bills, food bills and so on...To add something else to our bow could possibly have a negative effect.
In a matter of weeks the same kind hearted souls who previously felt useless to help the strays were out there and filing up their boots and vans. It was simply amazing.
However, it was up to us to get that precious aid to where it was needed most. How on earth were we going to do that without it costing us thousands every month? What we did was start to organise our own transports, we were paying so much already to companies to do what we were more than able to do.
We looked for so many ways that we could allocate our time to organising transports and collecting aid, but also to maintain the focus on fundraising to ensure bills were paid. Gift aid was the answer...
- 1,038 rescued animals to find safety in the United Kingdom and other areas of Europe.
- To collect and distribute over 240 tons of aid to help the starving and rescued animals
- To financially donate over £12,000 towards veterinary care to save the lives/treat victims of animal abuse and cruelty
Please help us to continue our work, to help us save the lives of so very many that need us.
