We hope you are keeping safe and well during this second lockdown and would like to thank you all for your amazing support over the last few months. Despite uncertain times for everyone you have all been incredible – we literally would not be here if it was not for your generosity and kindness. We feel so lucky to have such wonderful friends. Thank you.

Just as there was a little ray of light at the end of the tunnel we have, once again, had to close our shops, cancel events and limit rehoming – it is devastating. We are facing a further substantial shortfall in our income and whilst we are busy finding new ways of raising much needed funds, we really need your help now more than ever before.

It is for dogs like Tito and Bear and all the animals in our care, as well as the thousands that will need our help in the future, that we are asking if you would kindly consider helping us by making a donation. Perhaps you are saving fuel costs over the next few weeks or won’t be meeting with friends for your usual coffee – just a few pounds will make a huge difference.

• £5 will provide enrichment toys for one of the animals in our care
• £10 will feed one of the animals for the next two weeks
• £15 will help greatly towards our veterinary costs

Please donate now.

Alternatively, you can donate by text:

To donate £5 text AIDANIMALS 5 to 70085
To donate £10 text AIDANIMALS 10 to 70085
To donate £20 text AIDANIMALS 20 to 70085
Texts cost the amount of your donation plus one standard rate message.

Thank you so much from everyone at Animals in Distress Torbay and Westcountry.
