Pennine Animal Welfare Society

PAWS is a Cat and Dog rescue based in Todmorden, West Yorkshire that was established in 2007 in our founder Sue's flat. She then decided to expand to be able to offer more cats and dogs their second chance at happiness. PAWS gives everyone a chance to have a rescue success story regardless of age, location or circumstance. We have no age limit for adopters and take everyone on a case by case basis. In early 2022 we were served an eviction notice by our current landlord, it has taken us 13 months to finally secure a new home that is completely ours! We now need help to fundraise for the build out. Our current premises is in one barn, with no running water and not fit for purpose as it stands. Our new premises at the moment only had a stable and a container. We need to build a proper centre that is clean, safe and a happy place for animals and volunteers. We want to be able to build a reception/staff building, a cattery and kennel; with indoor and outdoor space and facilities where we can train and rehabilitate the dogs that come into our care.

Fundraiser for a new home

Jul 31, 2023

We have just bought a new premises for our rescue after 13 months of fundraising and campaigning. We need some PR and marketing support to try and raise a substantial amount of money to be able to pay for the build out as quickly as possible, find major donors and people who want to help. We get calls every day asking to take in animals and we have to turn lots away because we have to be out of our current premises by July. The planning fees alone cost £4k so any help would be appreciated!
