Helping thousands of lost
unwanted, neglected, abused
and abandoned animals every year.

Our objective is the promotion of kindness and prevention of cruelty to animals.

We reunite lost animals with their owners and find loving new homes for those no longer wanted.

Heat A Home

Days and nights can be particularly cold here on the farm for our animals when the cold weather kicks in.

Last year our heating bills cost a total of £26,311.04 to heat the 142 animal pens we have here at our Benton North Farm shelter for the whole year.

This means it costs us £185.28 to heat ONE kennel or cat pen for a year. We are appealing for your help to keep our kennels and pens warm and cosy for our animals.

Outside of our Benton reception we have a board with our target on and every person who donates to our campaign will have their name added to the board.

Every donation helps us, whether it is £1, £5 or £10.

For any person or business willing to heat a kennel or pen for a year by donating £185.28, we will display your name or business name and logo on a kennel or pen for the whole year.
