Making monetary donations

It costs over £250,000 each year to provide the level of care all animals should expect. We are funded entirely from the generosity of people like you, so donations (no matter how small) are greatly appreciated.

Making a donation is easy.

If you want to make a one-off donation just send us a cheque or postal order (made payable to NCHPS). Alternatively you can simply click on the ‘Please donate’ button on this page and you’ll be able to make a single donation using Paypal. If you wish you can also include a note saying who you are.

If you want to make regular donations then simply download a form, complete it and send it to us.

For any donation, if you are a UK tax paying citizen then you can help further by Gift Aiding your donation. This allows us to claim back tax from the Government but with no cost to you. Simply tick the appropriate box in the gift aid form and we will do the rest.

Or even better, come into the Shelter and make a donation in person – we’d be more than pleased to see you!
