Christmas time is approaching and soon the season of giving will be upon us. Today we would like to talk about some of the many charities out there that are able to help dogs that come in to their care, for whatever reason that might be. Be it abandonment, owners are moving away, too many dogs have been bred or the pet is too old to name a few of the many reasons a dog might need their help.
Battersea Dogs Home
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home was established in 1860 and is a non-government funded organisation. Their aim is to never turn away any dog or cat that is in need of help and to care for them as long as it takes to find them a loving home to go to. They strive to make lasting changes for animals in society.
Founded in 1891 and known in the past as the National Canine Defence League, the Dogs Trust are a humane society and an animal welfare charity. They specialise in the care and well-being of dogs whose aim is to rehabilitate and then find a new home for any dog that has been given up or abandoned by their owners.
Wood Green Animal Charity
Starting in 1924, Wood Green Animal Charity has since grown to be one of the top animal welfare organisations in the UK.
Their mission is to take unwanted and lost animals in, provide them with shelter and care, locate secure and loving homes for them, give advice, guidance and support for pet owners. Also they want to raise the public's awareness of their responsibility to animals in the society.
Established in February of 1993, the charity was set up to cater for abandoned and stray dogs. They have a policy to never destroy any dog and deal with around 1100 dogs annually. Babbinton Rescue is a completely non-profit company and all of their income is put directly toward the dogs, their vaccinations, any vet care that is necessary, micro chipping, food and staff etc.
Of course these charities don’t just operate over the festive period they are active all year round and most of them are non-profit, there just in it to help out the animals so why not give them a little thought this Christmas time.
