Us rabbits and the guinea pigs need alot food, bedding, toys, accomdation, vacinations, neutering and other vets bills. The costs soon add up and we rely on fundraising and donations.

Below are some of the ways you can help us, from sending us some money direct to donations of spare food and bedding.



As you can imagine, we like any other charity are desperate for funds. We receive no official funding from any source - we rely solely upon donations. We do not have a fixed charge when re-homing an animal or when taking one into our care but would appreciate whatever you would like to give. When considering your donation, please bear in mind if your chosen animal has been neutered and vaccinated, as it is these costs which consume a large percentage of our funds.

Please note at this moment in time we do not have the facillity to accept credit/debit card payments as donations at the centre. We can however accept cheques or cash. Please bear this in mind when you either come to collect your new pets or drop off for rehoming.

Our vet, David More at The Corner Veterinary Clinic, is very supportive and gives the charity a generous discount. Even so, our healthcare bills are huge, not to mention food, bedding etc, therefore we would love any financial help you could give.

All of our time is taken up with caring for the animals, which leaves no time for fund raising. If anyone could help by holding car boot sales etc, we have items for sale which been donated to the charity but have no time to do the sales!

We also would appreciate any home checking - this is an essential part of our work as we need to be convinced that each and every animal adopted from Bobtails goes to a suitable, responsible home. You do not need to already be an experienced home checker as we provide guidelines to help.

And of course we are always grateful for help with cleaning out and other day to day necessities.

If you can donate your time, skills and enthusiasm for any amount of time, why not enquire about joining the Bobtails team.

This is a brand new, free service for charities, that has no set up or fundraising costs for charities, no network charges for people making donations and every penny donated goes to charity. Gift Aid can also be added to donations.

From today, you can make donations of up to £10 by texting BRGR44 and either 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 to 70070 to make your donation. The text message is free and all of the donation will be passed on to us!

Raise Money for us as a Seller through www.ebay.co.uk
You can also help us raise money when you are selling items on eBay. As a registered charity, you can choose to donate between 10% and 90% of your final sale value to Bobtails when you list an item for sale.

eBay will also credit fees back to sellers when they sell through the eBay for Charity programme - when you sell an eBay for Charity item, you are eligible for the eBay fee credit if the item sells. eBay’s basic selling fees (basic insertion and final value fees) will be credited back to you according to the level of your donation.

For example, if you donate 50% of your item’s sale price to charity, you will receive a credit of 50% of your basic selling fees.

The fee credit will appear automatically on your first eBay invoice after the item sells.

So when you list an item on eBay, please consider donating a percentage of the final sale to Bobtails! We get an e-mail every time someone lists something that will give us a donation and you will receive a personal thank you from us!

We have been very successful in selling unwanted DVD's and CDs in our eBay shop. If you have any old DVD's or CDs you don't want any more, please can you think about donating them to us. If you drop them off at the rescue centre we will do the rest.....and you'll be helping raise lots of money for us. We have raised over £1,800 so far!
