Based in Lansdown, Stroud, Gloucestershire we provide animal welfare to the Cirencester, Fairford, Tetbury, Dursley, Nailsworth, Wotton-Under-Edge, Berkeley and Stonehouse area. Registered Charity Number 207006.
Our shops in Cirencester, Stroud and Wotton-Under-Edge have run short of good quality donations, in particular, furniture. We have a van and can arrange to pick up items of furniture. If you have a good quality item of furniture that you would like us to pick up, please just give the nearest shop a call - all the telephone numbers are on the shop page.
We are a little short of volunteers to work in our Cirencester and Stroud shops. If you have a few hours to spare on a regular basis then please call the team in Cirencester and Stroud for more information or simply walk in and ask. We have a number of roles on the shop floor and in the back of house and may have something right up your street.
It's February and the weather is really miserable. To help you feel better about life, the universe and everything, how about making a monthly donation to help fund the build of the Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home? You can donate now, securely and online. Simply pull out your credit card and click here to start the process. It should only take a couple of minutes.
Another thought - we have a couple of special boys that need new homes; Will and Edgar. Getting good pictures can sometimes be a bit tricky but try these for size. If you are interested in adopting any of our animals, just give Nicola a call on 07772 737 503. Hover your cursor over the picture to find out which is which or click on either image to go to our animal adoption pages.
Our shop in Wotton is having a two day book sale on Friday, 28th February and Saturday, 1st March. All the books will be 50p so we are expecting a good crowd as it is a great opportunity to stock up for the holiday reading!
Across our area, our work is focused on providing welfare for local animals. As well as finding new homes for many unwanted animals each year, we provide a twice weekly veterinary clinic, reduced fee neutering and veterinary help vouchers for people within the community on income support. We are an independent charity and rely wholly on local support to generate funds to enable us to deliver animal welfare. A substantial proportion of our income is generated by our shops in Stroud, Nailsworth, Wotton-under-Edge and Cirencester. We are always looking for people who are willing to help out and for donations of good quality, saleable items. You could really make a difference.
The Branch is about to launch a capital appeal to raise £2.5m to build The Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home; find out more on Cotswolds TV. Once built, the home will provide a safe place for abused, neglected and abandoned animals from across Gloucestershire for many generations to come. For more information about this exciting project and how you can help build the future for animals in need, simply click here. To see the local newspaper coverage from the 12th December 2013 (in the Stroud News & Journal) click here.
Thinking of getting a pet? Have a look at the list of animals we currently have available for adoption. You could find yourself with your new best friend. The list is split into three - cats, dogs and [other] small animals, e.g. hamsters, gerbils, etc. Adopting an animal that really needs a home can be one of the most rewarding things you can do.
