How to give an abandoned animal the incredible gift of a happy Christmas

December 16, 2018

Here’s a chance to buy a loved one a prezzie with a difference and give a very yappy Christmas to some furry friends.

Pet sponsorship offers a lifeline for abandoned animals who are cared for and at rehoming centres nationwide.

And the joy of receiving the gift comes when your nominated cat, dog, rabbit, or even horse eventually finds happiness again in a new home.

The pet charity Blue Cross runs a sponsorship scheme.

Spokeswoman Louise Lee said: “As a sponsor you will be helping real rescue dogs and cats who are waiting for ­loving homes.

“And you can get a wonderful warm and fuzzy feeling knowing you are helping them get everything they need as they prepare for life as family pets.”


Money funds cosy beds, nutritious food and toys to keep them happy and healthy.

And it means the charity, which rehomes up to 10,000 animals a year, can ensure they are ­vaccinated, ­microchipped, wormed, neutered and get any treatment they need.

Sponsorship also funds training and ­behaviour support for pets who need extra help to be ready for new homes.


Louise added: “You support them on their journey from unwanted to ‘can’t believe how we lived without you’ – and we will let you know when that happy day comes and they finally go to their home.

“Not everyone has room in their home to adopt a pet but many have room in their hearts. Pet sponsorship is the perfect gift for animal lovers because you can see exactly which pets you are helping.”

To sponsor a pet as a gift costs £36 per year or £3 month. To choose your pet, visit bluecross.org.uk.
