Sponsor a Kennel/Cat Pod

A very popular way of commemorating the life of a loved one (whether two-legged or four!) is to sponsor one of our kennels, cat pods or rabbit pods. When you do so, we have a plaque made which is placed above the chosen kennel/pod and can have a message of your choice.

It’s a great way of making a donation in memory of an avid animal lover or just remembering a much loved family pet. It is simply an annual payment of £100 for a cat pod/ kennel or £50 for a rabbit pod.

To make the process even easier, you can now donate via paypal below and in the process it asks you to ‘leave a note’. Here, you simple state what you’d like to sponsor and the message for your plaque.

Example : Sponsored Kennel – In loving memory of Bruno, a special dog that touched the lives of the whole Smith family.

One Fun Day Summer Fair & Dog Show

Hillfield Animal Home have been having a Summer Fair (of sorts) for 30 years now and this year was no different! Another hugely successful event that saw our local community out in force to support us here at their local RSPCA branch.

As always, the event was well attended and a great day was had by all. Our Fun Dog Show was more popular than ever before with around 70 dogs entering categories such as ‘Most Adorable OAP’, ‘Best Rescue’ and ‘Cutest Crossbreed’. The Dog Show was hosted and judged by the delightful Inspector Herchy Boal who you may recognise from Channel 5’s The Dog Rescuers. However, it was Taz that stole everyone’s hearts and was crowned Best in Show accompanied by his owner.

Taz – Best in Show 2019

All in all, the day was a huge success with a grand total of £4285 being raised on the day to help fund the animal home. A huge thanks goes out to
