How you can help animals in need during the Coronavirus crisis

How you can help animals in need during the Coronavirus crisis

The Coronavirus crisis is impacting on everyone – including animals in need. The donations we receive help provide care for abandoned animals in rehoming centres and provides them with all the food, veterinary care and love and attention they need. It helps provide free veterinary care for animals who might otherwise suffer, and it helps the communities who rely on their animals for support.

In this difficult time we must keep feeding, caring for and providing veterinary treatment to the animals who need us.

Cats like Minnie, abandoned in a flat without enough food or water, and dogs like Blossom, who was found living in the bin bags full of rubbish in a London park, need us now more than ever.


Here are some simple ways you can help us:

Shop online – By signing up and shopping online via our partners The Giving Machine, EasyFundraising or Give As You Live and you can raise donations for us at no cost to yourself!

Donate your commute – If you are now working from home could you donate the cost of your train or bus fare, petrol, or parking to help us? Text COMMUTE to 70490 to donate £5. Or visit our donations page.

E-cards – this is the perfect time to send e-cards to friends and relatives celebrating birthdays, Easter, or simply to say ‘I’m thinking of you’. We’ve put together a selection of e-cards you can send during this time. Each features one of the amazing animals we’ve helped, and raises funds to help us keep saving animals:
