WINTER WARMTH FOR THE ANIMALS


Bath Cats & Dogs Home is today launching its Winter Warmer Campaign to raise funds for lighting its heat lamps to help sustain its more vulnerable animals in warm kennels and pods through the coming cold winter months.


The rescue centre, one of the largest re-homing centres in the UK, is calling on animal lovers to dig deep and help fund the heat lamps that keep its more vulnerable animals warm during the colder months, particularly the puppies, kittens, sick and older animals, whom need extra warmth to recuperate and survive, what is predicted to be another harsh winter.


BBC TV presenter and star of the Theatre Royal Bath pantomime Naomi Wilkinson took time out of rehearsals for Dick Whittington today to launch the Bath Cats and Dogs Homes Winter Warmer Campaign. Star of the Saturday morning childrens wildlife show, Live n Deadly on BBC2 and CBBC, Naomi Wilkinson visited the Home to give her backing to the Bath animal charitys Winter Warmer Campaign to raise funds for running its heat lamps to help sustain its more vulnerable animals in warm kennels and pods through the coming cold winter months. In her role as a childrens TV presenter, animal lover Naomi Wilkinson has travelled the length and breadth of the UK meeting animals of all shapes and sizes.


Naomi comments: This is a particularly challenging time of year for abandoned animals and the Winter Warmer Campaign is all about providing essential care for animals young and old during the cold weather. Bath Cats and Dogs Home relies on the support and kindness of the public to keep providing a lifeline for hundreds of animals every day. Every donation made in support of this campaign will really help animals in need and make a big difference to their lives.


Rachel Jones, head of fundraising at Bath Cats and Dogs Home, comments: We continue to be full to capacity with dogs, cats and small animals, young, old, sick and healthy, which have come to us as innocent victims of the economic downturn. Financially, 2011 has proven more challenging than ever and whilst costs are constantly rising, donations are declining and we are now appealing to the public this Xmas more than ever to help us through these tough times. We are launching our Winter Warmer Appeal to help cover the cost of switching on the heat lamps to warm kennels and pods that need an extra boost to keep puppies, kittens, sick and older animals, in particular, snug during the festive period. Please help us make a difference to these innocent victims and help us give animals a cosy home this Xmas.


The animal rescue charity, which provides essential shelter, veterinary care and re-homing services to more than 3,000 dogs, cats and small animals every year which relies solely on donations, fundraising and legacies to meet its annual operating costs of more than 1.3 million a year.


To donate to the Winter Warmer Appeal you can give online at www.bcdh.org.uk, or contact the fundraising team on: 01225 787335. Or alternatively, please send a cheque made payable to Bath Cats and Dogs Home to: The Avenue, Claverton Down. Bath. BA2 7AZ
