Support Adoption for Pets is an independent charity providing financial assistance to rescue and re-homing centres throughout the UK.

During the year they hold fundraising events in Pets at Home stores, raising funds by getting customers to donate at the tills by 'rounding to a pound', selling raffle tickets and having bucket collections in store. Since 2010 Support Adoption for Pets and our local Pets at Home stores have raised over £34,000 for Bath Cats and Dogs Home during the fundraising drives.

Thanks to Support Adoption for Pets funding we have been able to make significant changes to the site at Bath Cats and Dogs Home, enabling us to provide the best animal welfare for those animals we rescue and rehome.

In 2018 we began work on a hugely significant kennel build with Support Adoption for Pets kindly giving a very generous donation of £50,000. This funding is helping us to realise our dreams of a new puppy unit, isolation and intake kennels and an area for the most vulnerable dogs we care for, those that have been cruelly treated and neglected.

This Support Adoption for Pets funding has built on the changes we were able to make back in 2014 when we were lucky enough to secure our first life changing donation with them. A grant of £50,000 meant we could build a cat enrichment garden for our feline residents, the first of its kind in rescue centres which has to our delight, now been replicated up and down the country, and we could also dramatically improve the exercise paddocks for our dogs.

These changes have made such a difference to the lives of our animals, reducing their stress levels and providing daily enrichment to their lives whilst in our care.
