Visits & Tours

Our charity welcomes organised tours around our Benton North Farm shelter.

Whether you’re a small group, school, organisation or a supporter just wanting to know a little more about our charity and how your donations benefit the animals.

Our staff would gladly show you around and answer any questions you have.

We Can Also Visit You!

When possible we can come out to your organisation, school or Church group to give a short talk about the work our charity does for animal welfare or careers within the charity. We can vary the talk to suit your needs.

We can also bring along Chips, the toy cat, to demonstrate how microchipping helps a pet to be reunited with its owner.

We can usually also bring a furry friend like a puppy or kitten to help attract the children’s attention (subject to school policy and availability).

If you are interested or would like any further information then please contact either Beth Codling or Marie Webster on 0191 215 0435.
