Fundraising

Here at Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter we are extremely grateful for those that take their time and dedication to fundraise for us. We have many schools, businesses, individuals and even groups of family and friends that get involved in all kinds to raise vital funds for our charity.

We don’t receive any government funding and rely solely on donations from the kind public to continue our work. Our running costs have hit an all time high this year, now exceeding £1.25 million per year. Veterinary bills themselves are costing over £15,000 per month due to the number of animals coming to us in need of urgent treatment and due to the severity of the conditions of the animals on arrival.

Fundraising can be achieved in many different ways. Fun ideas like bake sales, coffee mornings, fancy dress days, fairs or fun-days, to the more challenging like running, walking and cycling races or even the heart in your mouth adrenaline junkie style like zip lining, abseiling or even skydiving. No matter what it is we will endeavour to help you in any way possible and we will be there to support you all the way through.

For further information on fundraising, please contact us by emailing events@dogandcatshelter.com or call 0191 215 0435.

 

Julia and Nina took part in a 100 mile run to raise money for our shelter. They achieved this incredible challenge in just 30 hours, raising an amazing total of £1152.00

Three friends Susan, Carol and Sandra, decided to raise money for the animals in our care by walking into the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne and back again, covering 12 miles in total. They raised a fantastic £500. A huge well done and thank you for your brilliant support.

Our friends at NCFE decided to do their own fundraising drive by having a collection in their office. they delightfully dropped some brilliant treats and goodies off for our animals along with a monetary donation of £462. Thank you so much for your fantastic support.

We visited a class of students at North Gosforth Academy to talk to them about the work we do. The class then visited our Benton site to see for themselves where they could make a difference and the types of animals we looked after. The students then decided they wanted to raise money for us, so they held an end of term fundraiser at the school where they had lots of yummy goodies for sale. We went along with officer dog Churchill (who drooled the whole time) to show our gratitude. It was amazing to see all of the students getting on board and the class raised a fantastic £245.47 for us  from their fundraiser.
