Pennine Animal Welfare Society

Pennine Animal Welfare Society, known affectionately by everyone as PAWS, faces closure. The animal rescue, which has been in existence since 2007, became a registered charity in 2014 and works within a 15 mile radius of Todmorden helping to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home cats and dogs to their new forever homes. We are nestled in the middle of the Pennines so there's no better place to rehabilitate animals. 

We are a very small charity that is mainly run by volunteers with two paid members of staff, our Centre Manager, Susan Curran (full-time) and Helen (part-time). We currently operate out of one barn with 8 cat pens and 7 dog kennels. We need to find a new home so we can continue to operate and grow! We are the only charity that rescue cats in a radius of 15 miles so it's important we continue to do that. In the future we would love to be able to have multiple dog play areas, not just for our dogs but also so other dog owners can rent it out and we can make an income. We also would love to be able to extend our cattery and make an outdoor space for our cats so they can sunbathe and enjoy the fresh air. At the moment we have no mains water supply as we rely on rainwater collection and filtration. We also have an unreliable internet connection plus the cattery and the kennel are located too closely together and should ideally be better sound-proofed.

We have a fantastic group of supporters and volunteers and we would love to be able to add more paid staff to our team! We have a little stall at the local market where we sell preloved and donated goods.  We also run many other fundraising events throughout the year for families and individuals to enjoy. 

Your support will make the world of difference and our animals will be so grateful. 

Here are just some of the amazing animals we have saved so far:
