Sponsoring Rescued Animals

I love animals and I have 3 rescue cats of my own.  I thought I would write this post for those of you that love animals too, but maybe can't afford a pet, or you don't have the time or space to accommodate a pet.  If that's the case, you could always consider sponsoring or adopting a rescued animal that cannot be adopted and will remain at the rescue centre for life.  Here are some of the animal charities that you can support in this way:
 
Cats Protection Sponsor - You can sponsor a cat pen at Cats Protection for as little as £6 a month.  By sponsoring a cat pen, you will be helping Cats Protection to give vulnerable cats somewhere safe to live until they find a new home.  You will receive a welcome pack and regular updates on the cats that have stayed in your pen.  You can also log onto the website at anytime to see more of the cats that have stayed in your pen.
 
If you are not into cats, then what about sponsoring a dog at the Dogs Trust. For £1 a week, you will receive 3 updates a year and a sponsorship pack.
 
You can adopt a horse or donkey at Redwings Horse Sanctuary for just £12.50 a year.  You will receive a photo and adoption certificate, plus their story and details of how you can visit them.  You will receive a further update and photo just before their birthday as well.

You can also adopt horses, ponies, donkey or mules at Bransby Horses for £10 a year. You will receive an adoption folder containing a certificate and picture postcard of your chosen animal.
 
You can adopt a wide variety of rescued animals at Hillside Animal Sanctuary including cows, mules, horses, ducks, goats, donkeys, pigs, sheep, hens, rabbits, turkeys and alpacas.  For a minimum donation of £10, you will receive a certificate, twice yearly report and photograph of your chosen animal.  You can also help the sanctuary by gifting a bale of hay for £4 or buying carrots for £5 here.
 
If you want to adopt an animal slightly out of the ordinary, then what about adopting a primate at Monkey World.  For a minimum donation of £30 (for adults) you receive free admission to the park for 1 year, a photo of your chosen primate, an adoption certificate, a newsletter magazine published 3 times per year and the opportunity to take part in adoption only events.

Finally, you can sponsor a kennel or a kitty cabin at Battersea Dogs Home from just £5 per month.
 
You could also help a local charity by finding out if they have a wish list on Amazon.  My local Cats Protection has one here.  When I have money to donate, I log onto Amazon and purchase some items from the wish list and they are delivered direct to the rescue centre.
 
All the above options would make a great gift for any animal lover.  Let me know of any other similar charities that do this sort of thing.  For other ways to help animal rescue centres, why not give your local one a call to find out what they need, things such as towels, blankets & paper can come in handy for bedding, toys keep them active and food never goes amiss.
