Stroud Half Marathon & Randwick Wap

Stroud Half 2015It has been a weekend to remember and we attended both the Randwick Wap (Saturday the 9th May) and were outside the Subscription Rooms in Stroud to support Eddie the Dog and all the other runners in the 2015 Stroud Half Marathon.

It just shows what the Cotswolds is all about and how, if we all pull together, we can raise the money required to build the Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home.  To see the video of Eddie running "The Half" against a series of well-known and picturesque views of the Cotswolds, click here.

Billy the Cat

Billy the CatBilly is a handsome boy who has lived his life in a multi-cat household where he was just one of a number.  He has not used to having the all the attention for himself and has come to really enjoy it. It would be nice for him to have a home where he will continue to get more attention and yet be a part of the family. He is a nice boy and deserves a nice big home to explore inside and out. He is only 7 so has many more happy years ahead of him to enjoy.

To find out more about adopting Billy or any of the animals currently with us, please call Nicola on 07772 737 503.

Button About Us For over 75 years we have provided 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 on local support to generate funds to enable us to deliver local animal welfare. A substantial proportion of our income is generated by our shops in Stroud, Nailsworth, Tetbury (furniture and electricals), 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 Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home

The Branch is undertaking 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.
