03/05/2017 - Anniversary Appeal


Support us in our 130th year! This year we are hoping to raise enough money for a roof for our dogs play area. This will allow the dogs to exercise off lead, train and play in all weathers.

Many things have changed in the way we work over the past 130 years. However, some things remain constant. Edward T Parker was moved to start the Bristol Home for Lost and Starving Dogs after seeing a little puppy walking through a snow storm with nowhere to go to escape the cold.

This winter, little Jessica, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppy was found alone, walking around the freezing streets of Bristol, before someone brought her to us. Thanks to the loving care and attention of all our staff, Jessica was soon warm, with food in her belly and on her way to full health. She quickly found a loving new home! It just goes to show that the years may have passed, but sadly the demand for our help has not gone away!

Since 1887, we have constantly developed our site to adapt to changing needs and make sure that we are providing the best possible resources for the lives of the animals we care for.

 Our hopes for 2017 - The Anniversary Appeal

 This year we are hoping to raise enough money for a roof for our dogs play area. This will allow the dogs to exercise off lead, train and play in all weathers. This roof will cost just over £6,000 and we believe it will greatly increase the wellbeing of the animals in our care.

All donations towards this roof are greatly appreciated and will allow us to, as with the addition of electricity and new beds in years gone by, continue to improve our site for animals present and future.

If we are lucky enough to raise the full amount required for this roof, every additional penny will go towards treats, toys, treatments and general running costs, such as electricity and water bills, which are required to look after the animals in our care.
