Ways that you can support us!

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.

If you’d like more information, please call us on 0191 215 0435 or email events@dogandcatshelter.com

One-Off & Monthly Donations

You can now help us by making a donation online via JustGiving, whether this is a one-off donations or a monthly donation.

Any amount you can give really does make a huge difference to the lives of our animals and we couldn’t continue our work without your support.

You can also raise funds for our shelter by taking part in a sponsored event i.e. Dog Walk, Cycle Ride, The Great North Run, Bungee Jumping, or more silly ideas such as shaving your hair off, or a very hairy man waxing his back and legs. For more fundraising ideas or help, email us at events@dogandcatshelter.com.

Sponsorship forms can be obtained from our shelters if you contact us prior to your event.
