My story

[p]As the leading animal rescue charity in the Cotswolds we have cared for thousands of abandoned, ill-treated and neglected animals during our 75 years of existence.  [/p][p]We rescue animals from unimaginable conditions, we find them new homes and families ensuring that they have a loving and stable environment in which to live their lives and we provide access to veterinary services for the pets of people on benefits – ensuring that animals are never left untreated because of cost. [/p][p] Yet with all we do it is still estimated that there are over 2,000 animals in the Cotswolds area who are unable to get the help they need because of a lack of facilities.   With our existing resources we could not hope to meet this level of demand and so we are rising to the challenge by establishing a new centre for their care - because without it they will be condemned to live lives filled with abuse, neglect and illness.[/p][p]The new Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home will be a safe haven – a place of hope where they can learn to trust again and prepare for new lives with new families.[/p][p] Specially designed to minimise stress and maximise their rehabilitation, the centre will include sound proofed kennels and cat pods, under floor heating, a half-way house where animals can adjust to living in a home again, a state of the art veterinary suite, isolation facilities and outreach and education spaces so people can learn about the importance of animal welfare – it will, in short, provide a centre of excellence for animal care in our community.[/p][p][b]Plans for the Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home include -[/b][/p][ul][li]Spacious accommodation for up to 27 dogs set into the landscape and opening up towards the fields beyond[/li][li]Bespoke cat pods for up to 36 cats with large window looking out over the garden[/li][li]An area for small animals with bespoke hutches and runs with large screen windows connecting to the landscape and hutches placed within meadows to allow grazing[/li][li]Animal spaces which exceed the national standards[/li][li]High quality isolation facilities[/li][li]Veterinary treatment rooms[/li][li]Late drop off facilities for inspectors and dedicated on-site staff 124 hours a day, 7 days a week[/li][/ul][p][b]Building The Dream [/b][/p][p]We have already secured £1.6 million towards the building and establishment costs – and the annual running costs have been addressed through our own income generation activities.   So now we are asking you to join us in our challenge to raise the remaining £2.5 million to make the Cotswolds Dogs & Cats Home a reality.[/p][p]In the current difficult economic climate we realise how large that figure sounds but would it surprise you to know that if just 2,000 people pledged to donate just £1.43 a day for three years (or £1.07 if you are a UK tax payer and gift aid it) then we could achieve our goal.  So, for less than the cost of a macchiato a day, you could help thousands of animals take their first steps towards a happy and secure future with people who will give them the love and care they deserve.[/p][p]For more information on the Appeal click [url=http://www.rspca-southcotswolds.org.uk/cdch.aspx]here[/url][/p][p]Join us on Facebook [url=https://www.facebook.com/RSPCASouthCotswolds?ref=hl]here[/url][/p][p]Follow us on Twitter [url=https://twitter.com/RSPCASouthCots]@RSPCASouthCots[/url][/p]
