As a UK based charity operating in Greece since 1959, GAWF's purpose is the prevention and relief of cruelty and suffering amongst animals in Greece. We are proud of what we have achieved over 60 years as the longest serving animal charity operating in Greece at a national level, but there is still a long way to go in encouraging changes in attitudes at every level of Greek society.
Nearly two out of every three of these amazing guide dogs are only made possible by gifts in Wills; gifts which will help to provide the guide dogs of the future. Guide Dogs is helping more people than ever before, and in the UK today, almost two million people are living with sight loss. But by 2050 there could be nearly four million. This means more and more people will need our help.
The Anglican Society for the Welfare of Animals was formed in 1970 by a group of clergy and lay Christians who felt very strongly that the Church did not speak out on the subject of animal cruelty and suffering. Our mission is therefore to ‘put animals on the agenda of the Christian church’.
Our pets bring us so much joy. You can do something very special for them in return by leaving a gift in your will to the Royal Veterinary College Animal Care Trust. The RVC’s animal hospitals provide specialist veterinary care to the sickest pets, pioneer new treatments and train the next generation of vets.
The Animal Welfare Foundation (AWF) is a charity run by veterinary and animal welfare professionals, which uses expert veterinary knowledge to improve the welfare of all animals through science, education and debate. AWF funds research, supports veterinary education and stimulates debate on pressing animal welfare topics.
Battersea is here for every dog and cat, and has been since 1860. Over more than 160 years, we’ve gone from one home in London to three rescuing and rehoming centres across the country and have cared for over three million vulnerable animals. We believe that every dog and cat deserves the best. That’s why we help every dog or cat in need, regardless of their age, breed or background.
The Cat Action Trust was founded over forty years ago. We aim to help any cat however they come to us, whether they are stray, feral, hoarded, abandoned or lost. These are the forgotten cats that, without your help, wouldn’t receive the veterinary treatment, help and love they so badly need.
The policy of Cat Action Trust 1977 is to help feral cats by limiting their numbers through neutering and returning to site, by providing veterinary care where necessary, and by finding homes for kittens and tame stray cats. The charity is totally against killing for expediency. CAT 1977 also helps to educate the public and other animal welfare organisations about the humane control and care of the feral cat population through its website, newsletters and leaflets.
Thousands of healthy cats and dogs, kittens and puppies will die today and every day. Why? They were born into a world where there are not enough homes to go round. Countless strays are struggling for survival on the streets - cold, hungry, frightened - condemned to a life of suffering and often victims of cruelty. There is a humane alternative to this sickening daily slaughter and misery.
We recognise the importance of the treasured relationship between people and pets and we recognise that this relationship is, more often than not seriously threatened by infirmity and frailty. We exist to ensure that any problem encountered in the day to day care of a pet can be overcome and all the benefits of owning a pet can be preserved.
