Finding Forever Homes

Shoe Box Appeal 2017

Help make our rescue animals wish come true this Christmas with a present to open on

Christmas day from our Shoe Box Appeal

Our rescue animals have been really good this year and are sure to be on the Nice List, they have all written their letters to Santa and have asked for some goodies to enjoy whilst they are in our care.

Every animal will receive a present at Christmas, and it would be wonderful to treat them while they are waiting to join their very own Forever Home.

Could you kindly donate a Shoe Box please for a rescue animal this Christmas?


Version 3 DOG SBA

You can choose items from their letters to Santa to fill your shoebox, just click on each animal icon to read their letter

It's really easy to drop off your shoe boxes at one of our Centres, one of our Charity Shops or check the bottom of the page for drop off points around the area.

If you would prefer to make a purchase from one of our Amazon Wishlists instead, please follow these links for Church Knowle, Lincoln Farm and Wingletang

See all the fun our rescue animals head last year with your generous donations:
