  • Delivering kindness at Christmas

We’re appealing for kindness this Christmas, to help the thousands of animals who are facing neglect and cruelty over the festive season.

While for many, Christmas is a time to celebrate kindness to our friends, family and pets – our inspectors are braced to see some of the worst acts of cruelty to animals over the long winter nights.

Staff and volunteers are set to work around the clock to make sure the animals in our care have the best Christmas they can. This is only possible with the generous donations from kindhearted supporters, which allows us to help hundreds of animals throughout the year.

Kindness has the power to transform an animal’s life

It’s kindness that helps a nervous dog learn to trust again or finds a new family for a cat after it’s been left out in the cold.

Your act of kindness in donating can have an incredible effect.

Below, read the real-life stories of some of the animals whose lives have been changed by simple acts of kindness.
