Shoebox Appeal 2021
Give our rescue animals the special day they deserve this Christmas!
You can make a real difference to our animals by filling a shoebox or stocking with gifts and goodies for our rescue cats, dogs, horses, farmies and small animals. This will give them the exciting opportunity to open a present on Christmas Day and to spread the festive cheer this winter.
If you are looking for inspiration and gift ideas, please click on the individual stockings below to see our animals’ wishlists this year!
Once you have collected your gifts and popped them into a shoebox, you could also choose to make the box extra special with festive wrapping, ribbons or tags. You could even include a card or a letter if you would like to share a Christmas message with your chosen animal.
When your box is ready to be delivered, please go to your closet centre or charity shop to drop off the gifts. Our centres are currently open by appointment only, but you can still stop by and deliver your donations during our opening hours. Please click here to see our current opening times and contact details for each centre.
By donating a gift this Christmas, you will be helping to give our rescue animals the special day they deserve.
Would you like to send a gift online?
Well you can! If you would prefer to send a gift directly to our door, you can order a gift through our Amazon Wishlists. Each centre has their own wishlist, so you can even choose where your gift goes this Christmas. The lists include a full range of items that will be used by our rescue animals regularly and will help to make a big difference.
Don’t forget to shop with Amazon Smile when ordering a gift through Amazon. If you select us as your chosen charity, we will also receive a percentage donation of the net price of all qualifying purchases. This is a great way to not only send a physical gift to our rescue animals, but to also make a donation towards their care as well!
Make a Donation
