Broken Boiler Disaster (Boiler Bummer)

Why we need your help

Due to the recent Coronavirus outbreak a lot of new measures have been put into place to help reduce its spread. One very common practice is to wash your hands for 20 seconds and while this is essential advice it has led to a disaster for Gables Dogs and Cats Home. Their commercial boiler has broken down beyond repair under the strain; leaving the staff and animals with no heating or hot water. 
Gables currently has more than 150 unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats in their care, including some very young and very old. They are utilising heat pads and plug in radiators where they can but this is only a short term solution. The cost of replacing the commercial boiler is £4,700. Gables is already starting to suffer financially as they have had to cancel essential fundraising events and now their customers are cancelling their dog and cat boarding bookings. These are a vital sources of income for the charity. They are now looking to their amazing supporters for any financial help they might be able to give.

We currently have more than 150 unwanted and abandoned dogs and cats in our care, including some very young and very old. We are utilising heat pads and plug in radiators where we can but this is only a short term solution.

We have already started to suffer financially as we have had to cancel essential fundraising events and now our customers, understandably, are cancelling their dog and cat boarding bookings. These are a vital sources of income for us and now we are looking to our amazing supporters for any financial help you might be able to give.   

If we are lucky enough to raise more money than is needed it will go towards helping the other animals in our care. 

Thank you all in advance for your support in keeping us and all our animals safe and warm.
