Most people are one or the other or both. Well, I’m going to beg to you a little on behalf of them all! Back at Christmas 2007 I set up a standing order to the Newcastle Dog & Cat Shelter as a present for my then-squeeze, Louise. I was travelling, she was in NZ and there wasn’t a way or sorting out a regular prezzie. She also used to donate pet food on a regular basis when she lived there so it seemed like a good present.
Well, it didn’t exactly hold our relationship together but it did help benefit a lot of animals so I had no problem maintaining the donations until today. Unfortunately with no income, little money left in my savings and no feedback from SAAS as regards my student loan and fees I can’t afford to be dropping cash out each month regardless of how worthy the cause is.
So here’s a simple request. If you have a few quid spare and like animals then please go to their website and make a donation. You can go through Gift Aid and ensure they get the extra cash from theÂ greedy government, too.Â Or if you pass through Benton in Newcastle once in a while, please consider stopping off to say hello and donating some pet food.
