• The Aspinall Foundation was founded out of a deep love for wildlife and a respect for nature.

• The Foundation is one of the world leaders in wildlife reintroduction and we are at the forefront of breeding animals in captivity and reintroducing them into the wild, all whilst protecting vital ecosystems around the world.
Battersea is here for every dog and cat and has been since 1860. We aim to never turn away a vulnerable animal in need of help, caring for them until loving new homes can be found, no matter how long it takes.
Since we were founded 160 years ago, we have been committed to helping every dog and cat that needs us - championing their rights, loving their imperfections, and expertly caring for them.
We celebrate the characters and quirks of our wonderful rescue dogs and cats, encouraging animal lovers to think rescue first. Because we truly believe rescue pets are the best pets.
It costs around £50,000 every day to care for our animals across our three centres in Battersea (South London), Windsor (Berkshire) and Brands Hatch (Kent). We need your support to care for the thousands of animals who arrive at our gates every year.
Our partners at Cats Protection want to create a society where every cat has their best possible life because they are protected, cared for, understood and valued by everyone.
Cats Protection is a movement of people championing the welfare of cats. They lead society in a richer understanding of all cats and care for those that need their help.
Cats Protection has been championing cats for 96 years. This includes helping over 157,000 cats and kittens every year – in 2022 they helped 400 cats a day. They have successfully campaigned for compulsory microchipping, are lobbying MPs about the licensing of air guns and cat breeding and a ban on snares. They are leading cat veterinary experts, with over 700 people from 16 countries attending the third annual cat behaviour conference, and have delivered over 930 cat welfare talks to over 25,000 people in 2022. They do an incredible amount and we support their efforts to help people see the world through cats’ eyes.
Dogs Trust is the UK's largest dog welfare charity. The charity rehabilitates and finds new homes for dogs which have been abandoned or given up by their owners. They have a network of Rehoming Centres across the UK and Ireland. People are encouraged to sponsor a dog for at least £1 a week, even if they are not able to rehome the dog.
For the dogs that have had a particularly bad start in life and would not be happy living in a normal home environment, the charity takes care of these dogs with funds from the dog sponsorship. They have also created a sanctuary where selected dogs can live together free from excessive human contact.
It also runs microchipping and neutering schemes in the United Kingdom and abroad, in order to reduce the number of unwanted litters of puppies and stray dogs put to sleep by other organisations.
The charity is best known for its slogan "A Dog is for Life, not just for Christmas", which is used either in full or shortened to "A Dog is for Life" in advertising. The phrase was created to reduce the number of dogs which are abandoned as unwanted.
Dogs Trust also also actively campaign to protect dogs from cruelty including: docking of tails and unecessary euthanasia

Together for Animals raises much needed funds for its four member charities – Blue Cross, Mayhew, SPANA, and World Horse Welfare. Animals contribute so much to our mental and physical wellbeing - by working together we are ensuring that they can enjoy happier, healthier lives.
Because of the kind support and donations Together for Animals receives, we can help change the lives of cats, dogs, donkeys, and horses by:
- Fighting to ensure animals are treated with the respect and kindness they deserve.
- Finding happy homes for abandoned or unwanted pets and horses.
- Campaigning for animal welfare.
- Providing free veterinary care for working animals in the world’s poorest communities.
£5 a month could help to feed an animal while they wait to find their forever home.
£10 a month could help us save abandoned and abused animals.
£15 a month could help provide urgent veterinary care to a sick animal.
Together we can ensure that animals have happier, healthier lives. Help us save animals from disease, neglect, and abuse.
The Ulster Society Prevention Cruelty to Animals (USPCA) is the second oldest Animal Welfare Charity in the world. Founded in 1836 as the Belfast SPCA it's first priority was to challenge the abuse of working horses, a daily occurrence on the Victorian city streets. The eventual name change from Belfast to Ulster SPCA acknowledged the scale, scope and success of the Charity's expanded operations across the province.
The purpose of our founders to 'Prevent Cruelty and Relieve Suffering' remains as the driving force for our Charitable activities. The USPCA differs from many other animal welfare groups who focus on the needs of a single species with our unique commitment to protect ALL our animals.
Whilst there are heartless individuals willing to inflict unnecessary suffering on animals the need for a USPCA will remain. This Society will ensure its resources are effectively used to prevent animal cruelty and relieve suffering. For over 175 years we have fulfilled our commitment by adapting to the times. The USPCA will continue to protect ALL animals by utilising and adapting advances in technology to help tackle an ever present problem.
