Join The Winter Rescue

Every winter, thousands of vulnerable and innocent animals are abandoned and left out in the cold.

While we can't stop this cruelty from happening, we can and will be there to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome. Whether furry, scaly or feathered - we'll be there. But we can't do it alone. Each and every supporter helps us get another needy animal back on their paws and into a warm and loving home this winter.

Winter is when animals are at their most vulnerable

We answer thousands of calls and rescue hundreds of animals each and every winter but our work is never done, and this year will be no different. This festive season, we need your help to reach and rescue the abandoned and injured animals that need us the most.

They're counting on us and together - we can save lives.

Abandoned on the cold streets

Molly was found abandoned and wandering the streets just before Christmas. Police found Molly and managed to catch her and bring her into our care. She seemed broken and had given up on hope.

Molly was so underweight you could see her bones and she had a bad, untreated skin condition. What was heartbreaking was that she had been stolen from her previous owners, then dumped like rubbish.
