Rescue Centre Appeal - Please Support Our Crowdfunder

Be one of the crowd – join in to help us raise funds to buy our very own rescue centre in Rhondda Cynon Taff! Our crowdfunding page is one way you can help and is aimed at businesses and organisations who are interested in sponsorship and other corporate supporter benefits.

There is a wide range of rewards on offer in return for pledges of financial support, from as low as £50 for a 'keeping a stray dog safe certificate' up to £100,000 to have permanent recognition on our centre as a major corporate partner – and different amounts in between. The larger donations will give our project a real boost and will help bring our fundraising target within reach. We only have a very short window of opportunity to raise this amount through donations and grant applications so really need your support.

Buying our own centre is a daunting task and the purchase price and fees total almost £700,000. Initially we are looking to raise £100,000 to help reduce the amount we need to borrow and provide some working capital. We are so grateful for all the support that we have already received but if we can raise more, even better as the lower the loan repayments, the more money that can be spent directly on the dogs.

If your business or organisation is interested in supporting our Rescue Centre Appeal and transforming the lives of our rescue dogs, you can go straight to our crowdfunding page or contact us on

This really does represent a huge step-change in what we can do to improve the lives of stray and abandoned dogs in South Wales and we hope we can rely on your help and support to make this dream come true.

Please share with any business or organisation you think may be interested in supporting us!

Could you be a "Hope Hero"? We are looking for individuals or groups that can raise £100 or more for our Rescue Centre Appeal. This could be through a cake sale or raffle in work, a car boot sale or coffee morning. Perhaps you could do a sponsored event - if so our Justgiving Campaign page gives you the opportunity to set up your own fundraising page under the campaign banner.

Every "Hope Hero" successfully raising £100 or more will be invited to an exclusive Heroes Event at the new centre. We can provide all the materials you need including posters, collection tubs and leaflets.
