Giving back to help animals in need

An estimated 2.7 million animals enter UK animal shelters each year. Of these, 1.2 million are cats, 664,000 are dogs, and 184,000 are other animals (fish, small mammals, etc.). At any given time, there are an estimated 100,000 dogs – and countless cats – without homes in the UK.

An estimated 70 million dogs and cats are homeless in the USA. Somewhere between 4.6 million and 7.6 million dogs and cats pass through the animal shelters each year.

As we know, our furry feline and canine family members depend on humans for their everyday needs; shelter, food and water, veterinary care, love, and more.

Hundreds of millions of animals across the world have no guardian to care or love them, let alone a warm, comfortable place to curl up at night. Many suffer and die on the streets or have to be euthanised for lack of good homes. Animal homelessness is a really complex crisis.

Many organisations helping homeless animals are run by volunteers and rely completely on funding from kind, generous and giving people to keep them going. One solution is simple: adopt animals from shelters or the streets instead of buying them from breeders or pet shops.

Please also remember to support your local shelters and rescues, in whatever way you can. This could include:

-Donations of old blankets, towels, sheets or toys. Even clothes and other items if the rescue has a physical shop -Sharing animal rescue social media posts

-Giving as much as you are able to afford. Every penny makes a difference

At Vicky Sarah, giving back is at the absolute heart of what I do and who I am. This is why I’m supporting three local cat rescues who work tirelessly to support animals in need and I donate 5% from each animal healing and communication booking to one of these charities.

Thank you.

Vicky. x
