We are an animal welfare charity with a £4million flagship rehoming centre located at Wherstead, on the putskirts of Ipswich.

Our Suffolk team cared for nearly 800 animals in 2018. The centre costs over £550,000 to run each year but receives no government funding, and so relies greatly on the kindness and support of the local community to help with fundraising in order to continue providing expert care for animals in need.

Nationwide, we help thousands of pets in need every month, providing veterinary care, expert behaviour help and find them loving happy homes, as well as advice and education for current or future pet owners, schools and youth groups, and providing invaluable emotional support to a nation of pet owners via our pet bereavement support service. We receive no government funding so are entirely dependent on voluntary donations in order to continue providing these projects.
