Friends of Animals in Distress

If you have a passion for organising get-togethers, love creating or doing something that can be sold or sponsored and love helping animals (of course!), this could be the pawfect way for you to help us!

Throughout the year you and your friends could run bake sales, afternoon teas, coffee mornings, wine tasting evenings, plant sales or musical events. The list of possibilities is endless…

Recently, our wonderful supporters have been making facemasks, going on sponsored dog walks and knitting dog jumpers for us – their sponsorship and sales have made a real difference to the animals in our care!

Imagine making a huge difference to the lives of the animals in our care, whilst making new friends and doing something that you enjoy. Now there’s something to really bark about!

We are especially looking for individuals in and around the following areas to start groups like these:

  • Ipplepen
  • Torquay
  • Paignton
  • Brixham
  • Totnes
  • Newton Abbot
  • Bovey Tracey
  • Ashburton
  • Buckfastleigh

We also have lovely supporters from all over the country (and some internationally as well) so if you are not in one of the areas above, don’t worry, please still get in contact.

Our friendly Fundraising Team can support you with setting up your group or helping you if your group is already established.

If you live in South Devon and would love to help please get in contact with us on 01803 812121 or
