DONATE TO HELP PAY FOR HARPER’S VET BILLS
One of our kittens, Harper has a breathing problem when she plays. She gets out of breath and starts panting and sneezing. Our vet has found that her lungs sound messy and have recommended they draw fluid from her lungs and do ultrasounds and xrays. Her foster carer has set up a Golden Giving page to raise funds towards the vet bills.
Or you can donate here now and specify Harper’s fund in the options.
Our Rescue Cat calendars are now reduced to £2 + postage!

FOSTER HOMES FOR CATS URGENTLY NEEDED
Please fill out our adoption form so that all your details will go on our system. Also a huge majority of our foster carers actually adopt the first cats we give them so this speeds up the adoption too! Just put that you’d like to foster in the ‘info’ field at the end of the form and send it to us. We will arrange for you to have a home visit. If you don’t hear from us within a week, please email us so that we can fast track your enquiry.
PLEASE NEUTER YOUR KITTENS!
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 them.

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 direclty via our Golden Giving fundraising form, and then ask all your friends to sponsor you. Click here for get started.
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 also take part in the in-store activity held 3 times a year for their associated charity “Support Adoption for Pets” which is the biggest financial grant giving organisation for animal charities in the UK. As an example we received £1,700 from the Santa Paws activity last December which was absolutely brilliant!
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. You collect VIP Lifeline points every time you swipe your card at the till. If you go online and choose HAWS to be the animal charity of choice to receive your Lifeline points then, after you have spent enough to qualify, we receive these points converted into vouchers for us to spend in the store. So 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.

CALLING ALL RABBIT & OTHER SMALL ANIMAL FOSTERERS
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 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.
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.
We’re grateful to those who kindly donate money for our animals. Also to everyone else who helps in any way. We really do appreciate everything you do, whether re-homing, fostering, transporting, fundraising – or even just spreading the word about our charity.
