VIP-RegisterPLEASE COLLECT LIFELINES FOR US AT PETS AT HOME

We have had a relationship with the Pets at Home store in Brentford for many years and we continue to collect donated items there in a dedicated bin and to feature our cats for homing on their noticeboard. We have just received £1,700 from their recent Santa Paws fundraising activity for which we are very grateful.

A while back Pets at Home introduced a VIP club.  After joining you receive a VIP card and a 10% voucher off your first shop there, plus other discounts from time to time featured in the magazine.  More interestingly for HAWS however is that you collect VIP Lifeline points every time you swipe your card at the till.   If you sign up for HAWS to be the animal charity of choice to receive the lifeline points then we are in line for a very useful sum of money! If you shop at Pets at Home (any branch, and either in store or online) then please do get one of these and link with HAWS. Thank you.

Sidney would like to say thank you to everyone who has helped him so far to have a better quality of life now and for the future by fixing his knees.  Since his first knee operation, Sidney has been busy working hard on getting back to his normal self.

He will be off to the vets again shortly to have his other leg worked on and we are still a little short (amount tbc).

All donations will be very welcome. Please click here.

CALLING ALL RABBIT & OTHER SMALL ANIMAL FOSTERERS

HAWS are aiming to restart rabbit and small animal fostering. Would you be able to look after a rabbit, guinea pigs or other small animal? Do you have experience and time and perhaps an empty hutch or cage? We are looking to get a group of fosterers ready so we can take the strain off other small animal rescue charities. With Easter soon upon us there are likely to be many unwanted impulse-bought rabbits needing new homes, and small animals often suffer when the children they are bought for lose interest. We can support with food and bedding if required (unless you are able to provide this as an additional donation to our cause) and we will be on hand for advice. We will pay for veterinary attention that our animals need. If this is of interest and you live in out catchment area please email us now to discuss further.


RAISE MONEY WITH GOLDEN GIVING

If you would like to organise an event to raise money for us – anything from a sponsored parachute jump or a marathon perhaps, you could set it up via our Golden Giving fundraising form, and then ask all your friends to sponsor you.

For more information on Golden Giving please click here.


SELL FOR HAWS ON EBAY

If you have any good quality items which you’d like to donate, it would save us a lot of time if you could put them on Ebay and sell them for us. Hounslow Animal Welfare Society is on Ebay‘s list of charities so you can choose to donate from 10-100% to us. If you are not sure how to do this you can always email us for advice by clicking here.


PLEASE NEUTER YOUR PETS!

The number of unwanted pets in our area is becoming endemic. HAWS have a strict non-destruction policy (no matter how old or how much medical help our cats may need) but that does mean that our resources are often overstretched.
One of the key reasons for the huge number of unwanted pets and strays is that people are not neutering their pets.
