How you can help

Helping us make a difference

Sick, injured and homeless pets have relied on us since 1897. Thousands of abandoned or unwanted, ill or injured, pets turn to us for help every year. Our doors are always open to them, and with your support, they always will be.

The Clothes Line - Give in style

  • Online donations: You can make a one off donation, where you can with a number of different credit/debit cards and PayPal or set up a monthly direct debit donation. Your money will go towards helping sick and unwanted animals. 

  • Leaving a legacy: Leaving us a gift in your Will means we can give more pets a healthy life in a happy home. Legacies account for more than half our income and provide vital funds to help us care for sick, injured and homeless pets. 

  • Volunteer: We rely on our fantastic team of dedicated volunteers and we’d love for you to join us. We have lots of different volunteer roles around the country if you have any time to spare.

  • Attend an event: Our centres hold fundraising events, such as open days, shows and sponsored dog walks, throughout the year. Attending your local event will help raise valuable funds. 

  • Fundraise: Organise your own event, run a race for us or sign up for one of our fantastic overseas challenges. All the money you raise will go towards helping our animals.

  • Our fundraising campaigns:

    We raise money for our work using a variety of methods. One of the ways we do this is to talk to people in person on the door step, and at private sites such as supermarkets.

  • Shop: Who would have thought shopping could generate cash! By visiting one of our charity shops or buying from our online shop you can help raise money for needy animals. You can also take part in various shopping schemes and support the Blue Cross.

  • Work for us: Join our team of friendly and hardworking people dedicated to improving animal welfare. Working with animals can be hard, upsetting and physically exhausting but it’s also extremely rewarding.

  • Corporate sponsorships and other partners: Your company can support Blue Cross in lots of ways and we strive to develop partnerships that are mutually beneficial.
