Animal Health Trust Newmarket OUT MISSION The Animal Health Trust aims to be pre-eminent in the understanding of diseases in animals through scientific endeavour and its application to their welfare. Our approach is to develop new technology and knowledge for the better diagnosis, prevention and cure of disease; to provide a clinical referral service for veterinary surgeons in practice; to promote postgraduate education. We have referral clinics for horses, dogs and cats. We offer diagnostic services to vets and DNA testing to assist dog breeders. Our researchers and clinicians look for ways to diagnose problems, prevent them and, where we can, cure them. We share our knowledge internationally to benefit horses, dogs and cats all around the world. Where does the money go? All funds we raise through our services, go straight back into developing new diagnostic tests, treatments and vaccines to help thousands more animals. Nearly all horses, dogs and cats in the UK will have benefited from our work – that includes your pets and those of your family and friends.
Animal Samaritans Bexleyheath The aims of Animal Samaritans are to rescue, provide care and shelter for unwanted, abandoned, neglected or ill-treated animals and to provide new homes for them wherever possible. To assist owners of pets to meet veterinary fees where owners are unable to meet such fees themselves.
Animal Welfare Foundation London AWF was founded with a generous legacy from Colleen Macleod to improve the welfare of all animals through veterinary science, education and debate. It was set up by vets who, concerned about a whole raft of issues concerning animal welfare, had a vision of how they could alleviate unnecessary pain and suffering in all animals including farm animals, wild animals and pets. Our aim is for all animals to have good physical health and mental wellbeing.
Bat Conservation Trust London To conserve bats we need to establish the size of current bat populations, working out which bats are where and how they are responding to the threats and pressures they face. BCT's network of volunteers and the general public monitor bats for national and international programmes. By monitoring them we can discover the factors that are important for their survival. We can identfiy which species need action now, what areas are important for bats and what threats bats face. Ultimately our monitoring programmes give us, and governments, the information needed to make bat conservation a success. Our monitoring projects span the UK, Europe and the rest of the world: As the authority on bat conservation BCT's positions, policies, practice and guidance are based on the latest scientific evidence. Experts in this area from a number of academic institutions support BCT with technical advice, with Professor Paul Racey as BCT's Honorary Science and Conservation Adviser. BCT also support and drive forward conservation research collaborating on a number of scientific studies which contribute to the conservation of bat populations. BCT has established an annual award, the Vincent Weir Scientific Award to reward and encourage research on the conservation biology of bats by new researchers.

Born Free Horsham From small beginnings, the Born Free Foundation has grown into a global force for wildlife. But a personal passion for wild animals and desire for positive change remain at our heart. Described by The Times as ‘Big enough to make a difference, but small enough to care,’ Born Free is not a big anonymous organisation, but a group of people who share the same goals and dreams for our natural wildlife..

British Bee Keepers Association Stoneleigh Park Research, whether investigative or applied, is expensive and the BBKA has to decide where and how its funds can be invested to best effect. We may support a project with seed corn funding, or part fund a Ph.D studentship or be one of a number of organisations involved in supporting research. Funding Ph.D studentships is of particular interest because not only of the benefits of the results from the research realised but also we have supported a young scientist who may go on to have a career as a bee scientist. Current BBKA financially supported projects include University of Sussex; Supporting the work of the Hygienic Bees project University of Keele; Measuring pesticide levels in beeswax in honey bee colonies University of Keele; Improving Honey Bee Health by Enhancing the Palatability of Food Supplements. Ron Hoskins; Increasing the gene pool of honey bees showing hygienic behaviour to Varroa destructor
Buttercups Sanctuary for Goats Boughton Monchelsea Buttercups first began when Bob and Valerie Hitch agreed to take two unwanted goats into care in 1989. A few months later, an RSPCA inspector asked if they could accept another goat in need of urgent care. In less than a month, yet another arrived. Before long, goats suffering from all sorts of cruelty and neglect were arriving from around the county. By 2003, with so many goats to care for, the sanctuary became a registered charity. Our Patron is the wonderful and invaluable Rt. Hon. Ann Widdecombe Aims We're the only registered charity in the UK who care solely for the good of goats. We rescue abandoned, abused and neglected ones, and we also help animals simply in need of a new home whose owners can no longer look after them or who have been left alone after the death of companion goats. We also help improve the knowledge and education about goat welfare nationwide. Awards In 2007, Bob and Valerie Hitch received the Elsie M J Evans award from the RSPCA in recognition of their outstanding animal rescue work. Our goats We have about 137 goats living on site, with about another 109 under our wing in foster homes. Some of our goats are rescued from cruel and unsuitable situations and others can no longer be looked after by their owners. Our herd is split into two - a main group and a small herd of males where entire billies are kept isolated from the main group until they've recovered fully from castration. Our goats can roam over open fields during the day and have warm, dry, undercover accommodation at night, either in individual stalls or sharing with a close companion. These stalls are cleaned daily by our team of dedicated volunteers and each goat receives any attention needed daily such as grooming, foot treatment and medical care.

Happily, over half make a full recovery and so can be returned to the wild.
League Against Cruel Sports Godalming We were started by a group of people who felt strongly that cruelty inflicted in the name of sport was barbaric and upsetting, and who wanted to be a force for change. If you feel that animals should not be used as targets, or objects to be chased or used as commodities for entertainment, then you are a supporter of the League already. We need your voice to add to the call to change, and together we can help protect animals used and abused in the name of sport.

Rain Rescue Sheffield Rain Rescue was founded by Jacquie Neilson after she saw some lost and stray dogs in a Huddersfield council dog pound. Jacquie was horrified at the conditions these dogs had been kept in – and ultimately put to sleep from. A few had been saved by a lady and they had arrived at a local rescue centre where Jacquie volunteered. Once she realised that these dogs – who had done no wrong other than be in the wrong place at the wrong time were treated so terribly and then ultimately put to sleep – she decided to do something about it.

The Cinnamon Trust Hayle The only specialist national charity for people in their last years and their much loved, much needed companion animals. A network of 15,000 volunteers “hold hands” with owners to provide vital loving care for their pets. We keep them together - for example, we’ll walk a dog every day for a housebound owner, we’ll foster pets when owners need hospital care, we’ll fetch the cat food, or even clean out the bird cage, etc. When staying at home is no longer an option, our Pet Friendly Care Home Register lists care homes and retirement housing happy to accept residents with pets, and providing previous arrangements have been made with us we will take on life time care of a bereaved pet.
The Cinnamon Trust Hayle Companion animals and the elderly Cinnamon Trust lady with blue budgie It is widely acknowledged that pets can positively benefit the well-being of elderly owners. For many elderly people living on their own, their pets are their reason for living. Lady with Cinnamon Trust dogThey are constant companions - on hand 24 hours a day, every day, comforting, loving and protecting their owners - not only from outside threats, but also offering the more subtle form of protection from loneliness and despair. Man with Cinnamon Trust dog Pets are warm and intensely loyal. They do not criticise, they boost morale, they help reduce stress by providing emotional security, and they help to provide a fixed routine. Pets have the ability to bring happiness and laughter and lift depression. Communication with other people is often easier when a pet is present for reassurance. The special relationship between owner and pet adds incalculably to the quality of life, but all the pleasures and benefits can be completely neutralised by intense anxiety regarding the fate of their devoted companion should the owner die, fall ill, or have to move to residential accommodation. If an ‘old faithful’ dies, elderly owners are often very reluctant to have another pet for these reasons, and life for them loses much of its warmth, light and purpose. What is the Cinnamon Trust? Cinnamon Trust is the only specialist national charity which seeks to relieve the anxieties, problems, and sometimes injustices, faced by elderly and terminally ill people and their pets, thereby saving a great deal of human sadness and animal suffering. The Trust was founded in 1985 by Mrs Averil Jarvis whose determination and dedication has ensured that the manifest need is fully addressed.Cinnamon the corgi ...and why Cinnamon? Just as Mrs Jarvis was starting her work to develop the charity, her beloved Corgi, Cinnamon, died in her 17th year. It seemed appropriate to name the Trust in her memory. What does the Cinnamon Trust do? Cinnamon Trust lady with black cat The Trust’s primary objective is to respect and preserve the treasured relationship between owners and their pets. To this end it works in partnership with owners to overcome any difficulties that might arise. A national network of over 15,000 community service volunteers has been established to provide practical help when any aspect of day to day care poses a problem - for example, walking the dog for a housebound owner. A national fostering service is provided for pets whose owners face a Cinnamon Trust man with two dogsspell in hospital - volunteers take pets into their own homes and supply love and care in abundance until owner and pet can be reunited. The Cinnamon Trust also provides long term care for pets whose owners have died or moved to residential accommodation which will not accept pets. Arrangements are made between owners and the Trust well in advance, so owners do have peace of mind

Wythall Animal Sanctuary Birmingham Wythall Animal Sanctuary was founded by Mr. & Mrs. E. Davies in 1968, whose aim was to save and rehome as many unwanted pets as possible. Many thousands have been found new homes since then. Many of these animals may otherwise have been destroyed. We have a non-destruction policy and we are the last hope for these animals. As our name signifies we give them Sanctuary. We take in, when possible, animals for rehoming and some of these animals will not be fit for rehoming and will live the rest of their lives with us. We pick up all the bills, including veterinary bills, for our residents both long-term and animals for rehoming. It costs £4,000 a week to keep the Sanctuary running and we rely entirely on donations, fundraising and Wills to continue our work. Other ways you can help are by Sponsoring an Animal for just £15 a year, joining our 100 Club or by becoming a 'Friend' of Wythall Animal Sanctuary. Please help where you can by donations or giving a pet a home.
