WAW Christmas Appeal – Make a Christmas wish come true!


It’s been a strange year for everyone, the impact of Covid-19 has been reflected in our finances, with many of our fundraising opportunities drying up but has also seen an increase in demand for our services and support.

In a normal year, we would do lots of fundraising to support our rescue centre and neutering programmes with stalls at summer fayres and shows, bag packing at supermarkets, events and a range of other activities. We don’t receive any government funding, so fundraising is critical to our rescue operating.  
As the coronavirus situation continues, we really need your help to survive these uncertain times, so we can help animals now and continue into the future.
This Christmas we are asking you to help us to survive so we can continue to help animals in need, many of them innocent victims of the pandemic.

A strange year

Animals don't know we are in the middle of pandemic - there are still animals in need of rescue and in need of homes - our rescue has remained active throughout the pandemic, albeit with new, safe ways of working and our doors remain open to help animals in need.  We work 365 days a year to provide for the animals in our care, including all through the festive season.
This year we have taken in pets from people who have sadly died, lockdown pets that were no longer wanted when people went back to work, sickly puppies that have been bred to meet the increased demand, pets who people could no longer afford to keep due and supported the community by offering pet food to those in need and much more.

How you can help the animals

All the animals in our care really want is a home for Christmas, but until that happens we need to make sure they are well looked after, cared for and most importantly loved.  
With your help we can make sure that the animals in our care have a great Christmas and that we can continue to help them and the community into the future.
There are many different ways you can help and get involved:

Make a donation:

  • ITEMS WE NEED:  Wet & Dry Food – cats, dogs & kittens, rabbit and guinea pig food & treats, poop bags, black bin bags (good quality), kitchen roll, good yard brush / inside brushes, Kong (strong) dog toy, washable scratching posts, waterproof dog coats.

    You can always use donate items via our Amazon Wish List.
  • Donations can still be dropped off at the centre – but must be left at the gate (within current Covid-19 restrictions).  Plesae note the roadworks, which affect how you get to us.
