Suffolk & Essex Small Animal Welfare

What’s a chatty Chihuahua like me to do now? Visitors cannot come in to see our animals and we cannot hold any fundraising events – my two main subjects of conversation gone. Fortunately our volunteers are always coming up with interesting ideas, like Sharon, a professional seamstress who is sewing washable, pleated face masks in triple layered dense cotton. Jayne is busy knitting ‘Rainbow of Hope’ car hangings and both items are selling well. The ladies suggest a minimum donation of £2 per item. If interested please phone Jayne on 07720 079370 to see if collection or delivery can be arranged.

We may only be a small local charity but we have homed many animals over the past 27 years and although life has changed beyond belief, we are still here to help or advise regarding any animal in need. Our hard working ladies and gentlemen exercise and care for the animals every day, with maybe a few extra cuddles. Thank you to all the shops that host our food collection bins or donate food and vegetables from their own stock. More than ever, we are grateful to them and the public for their continued support. Given a choice, we would ask for kitten food because it’s that time of the year again!

We dogs are glad of the lovely weather as we accompany mum around the garden on her evening rounds and then it’s bedtime for all the animals, including me…
