Christmas Dinner Advent Appeal

Advent appeal.

This campaign is now closed, but our HUGE thanks to everyone who donated, you helped us to raise £3270.00 towards keeping the dogs and cats fed this winter. Every penny will be spent looking after the street animals, and we are so grateful for the generosity of our supporters. Thank You!!

If you still want to donate to the work KAPSA do for the street animals, please visit our Donation Page here on the website.

Every winter, KAPSA help the street animals by funding a winter feeding program. Volunteers across the town take responsibility for feeding the local street animals daily and keeping an eye on their health and well being. We distribute the food weekly to our volunteers and they ensure as many animals as possible on ‘their patch’ benefit. However, this amount of food is costly and represents a significant percentage of our annual budget. Everything we do is funded by donations, so following the huge success of this appeal over the last couple of years, we are asking for your help again. Every day of Advent, a new Christmas themed photo of our street dogs and cats will be posted in our facebook group, so if you are not a member, please do join us there. We are asking you to donate £5 for a ‘Christmas Dinner’ for a dog or cat, to help see each of them through the winter months. Every penny goes to helping the animals, so please help us to help them this Christmas. You can donate as many dinners as you wish by simply filling in the form below, choosing an amount or adding your own, and clicking donate. Also, if you are UK Tax Payer, it would help us even more if you could choose the Gift Aid option. Thank you, from everyone at KAPSA and from every dog and cat who will not go hungry this winter.
