Paige came into us on January 15th this year, she was in such a bad state our team were so affected by her! She was so loving and friendly and just wanted affection! Paige was incredibly underweight and malnourished; she had lost so much muscle mass and was emaciated. She was seen by our vets the next day and they ran blood tests, which were inconclusive, so they decided to do an ultrasound. The ultrasound showed her lungs were full of fluid and her heart completely surrounded by fluid, internally she was in such a bad way they could not even see her spleen. There was nothing that could be done and we had to let her go. Even the short few days we had Paige her treatment bill was almost £700, and we would do it again if we thought there was a chance we could save her and find her a loving home. 

However, the likes of Paige are the reason our vet bill, in 2023, increased by almost £2,000 EVERY month, because of the condition the animals were reaching us. One Friday we received 2 dogs from the local Dog Warden that need urgent medical attention, those 2 dogs that Friday cost us £4200! 

In 2023 we found loving homes for the following;

  • Dogs 184
  • Cats 165
  • Rabbits 14
  • Others 27   Total of 390 

Thats why we decided to do this campaign to raise money towards our vet bill. Our vet bill isn't a fixed cost, we have no idea what it will be from one week to the next, we can't budget for it, yes, we can estimate it, but let’s be honest, that's just a guess!  

If you watch the video you will see how Paige nuzzled under my jacket, she really got to me and all the Team...


The very next day we had a visit from Violet... Violet is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, who we rehomed a while ago. Violet was found in a field with her leg caught in a rabbit snare trap. Our vet reckoned she had been trapped there for 3 or 4 days. The leg was in such a bad way they could not save it, but my word, how she has flourished in her forever home!

Violet is now living her best life with her new best friend Monty!

I'm pretty sure This is the sort of work that William Wilberforce envisaged when he met with a few friends in a coffee house 200 years ago this year... Thats where it all started! This is part of the "Everyone for Every Animal 200th Anniversary Campaign"

If you are able to help us with this campaign we will continue his work!
