Sunderland, Hartlepool and South Tyneside Branch

Help Us Run Our Animal Centre

How you can help us

Sponsor our new animal centre

We have bought a building on the edge of Strinesdale Country Park that will become our new home. This building is an ex United Utilities building and needs extensive conversion work for it to reach our high standard of animal care.

The total cost of the project is in the region of £1.5 million. The branch have funding to get the project started, but not enough to complete it. We are hoping that the general public will help us raise the remaining funds required to complete the project.

We aim to raise £200,000 by offering our supporters the chance to help sponsor the building of our new animal centre by buying a virtual brick, plaque or to sponsor a dog or cat kennel.

The funds raised will go towards the building of the facilities to rehabilitate the neglected, abandoned or abused animals that come into our care, giving them their second chance of finding a forever loving home.

We are trying to give everyone the opportunity to contribute. You can support us either directly from yourself, as a group, or by a corporate donation

What you will receive

For those supporters who can help by becoming a Silver, Gold or Platinum sponsor will also receive a dedicated plaque which will be on view on our celebration wall in our new reception area or within the animal areas.

These plaques can be dedicated to a loved one, a beloved pet or simply show the name of your organisation or group.
