Help Us

Fundraising and fostering is essential for us to carry on the work we do. Adoption fees simply do not cover the bare minimum of what the animals in our care need (injections, neutering, kennel fees, food, etc.) and in order to keep going we rely on you, the animal loving public to help us.

Fundraising doesn’t have to mean donating money yourself (although of course donations are kindly received) and here are some suggestions….


We’re not proud and know that every penny helps. If you are able to spare a little (or a lot) please click on our Donate button and give what you can.


Foster placements for cats and dogs in/around Stowmarket/Woodbridge/Ipswich areas. We have a massive waiting list for Cats & kittens to come in which at the moment we do not have room for. We also have lots of family friendly dogs in our kennels that are desperate to get back into a home environment where they can thrive. This also frees up more kennel space to take in any urgent cases.


Why not become a valued member of the Suffolk Animal Rescue. Many national rescue groups use money to fund their expensive marketing campaigns but every penny we get from you helps the animals local to you in Suffolk. Click HERE to find out more.

Give to the animals

We always need pet toys, leads & collars for the animals in our care, and to help those fantastic people who give a new home and fresh start to one or our waifs and strays.

Stowe Vets have kindly agreed to collect toys for us from their in store collection bin at their Stowmarket branch on Bury Road.

We have also partnered with Morrisons and Jollyes in Ipswich and share donation bins with another charity.
Please help us by donating pet toys, leads, collars and food so we can continue to help animals in desperate need of a home and a new family. Please visit our Wish List by clicking HERE
