Listen to our Patron Lisa Maxwell on BBC Radio Gloucestershire talk about our Christmas Carols event on the 10th December. In aid of the Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home, it takes place at St. Mary's Church, Painswick (starting at 6:00pm) and will feature readings from Lisa and celebrity friends, including Emma Samms, Patrick Robinson and Denise Walsh. We also have a performance from internationally acclaimed soprano opera singer Abigail Iveson.

Aside from the time lapse, here are a couple of still images that show just how far we have travelled through the build.
The top picture shows the roof going on over the main part of the building.
While the interior is of the cat homing area, which is still under construction. However, the colour scheme is the finished article and is designed to be restful and calm.
Lisa Maxwell of TV's The Bill and Loose Women fame shows her support for the new Cotswolds Dogs and Cats Home and explains why it is so important to the community. Click on the picture to see the video. Expect to shed a few more tears.
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 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.
