We Are Here To Help

Whilst we are not open yet to the general public (except by appointment), we are open to pets.

Are you in a situation where you need help with your pet? Do you need advice? Are you struggling to cope? Are you considering the heartbreaking decision of having to find your pet a new home? We are here for you; please get in touch and let us help you and your pet. Please, never put your pet on online forums and websites for rehoming; it is fraught with danger and there are so many organisations like Little Valley out there ready and willing to help. No one should feel they have no alternative but to abandon their animal or potentially put them in harm’s way by advertising them online. 

Ready To Adopt?

Maybe you are in the happy position where you are ready to welcome a new pet into your life? We are rehoming by appointment only and would be delighted to help you find your new best friend. We have everything from guinea pigs and rabbits looking for a new garden to call home to dogs and cats waiting for a spot on the sofa to snuggle. Whether you need us to help you find a new home for your pet or you are looking to start your adoption journey, simply click on our website.

Donated Pet Goods Mean Vital Funds 

We are delighted to accept anything from dog beds to sealed, in date pet food. Whether it is for small animals, cats or dogs, please do bring it to us. We have allocated a box outside the Shelter Reception so that you can drop items off in a contactless way and not have to come into Reception or contact us. We then check the box and empty it regularly. Unfortunately, we cannot accept any human bedding such as duvets and pillows.

If you have donations for our charity shops, please contact them directly as they are beginning to reopen now.  

Amazon WishLists

Nothing to donate but want to help? You can always buy our animals a gift from our Amazon Wishlist. And remember, you don’t have to buy from Amazon, but our Wishlist gives you an idea of the sort so things we currently need:

Dogs: http://amzn.eu/3SaOVPc

Cats: http://amzn.eu/23RCM4m

Thank you to everyone for your amazing support. 

Green Shoots at Little Valley – Working Towards A Phased Re-Opening of the Shelter

Finally, three months after lockdown and following government advice, we are at last working towards a phased re-opening of Little Valley Animal Shelter to the general public. The re-opening process is likely to take time as we need to make sure that everything required is in place to provide maximum safety to all those visiting or working at the shelter. We will provide further updates on opening timescales on our website/social media, but rest assured all of us at Little Valley (including our animals!) are really looking forward to the re-opening and getting back to some semblance of normality.

Throughout lockdown we have continued to accept many animals from the RSPCA inspectorate but sadly, as you know, in compliance with government requirements and despite the fact our shelter has remained closed to the general public, we have been very busy behind the scenes. A large number of our animals have been temporarily fostered and, because we were also desperate to rehome, we worked very hard to develop a safe way to do this via our website and social media (details of animals who are looking for new homes); phone calls (to make sure that our animals were a good match); completing Perfect Match forms (online) and finally staff taking pets to their new loving homes. It goes without saying that all staff abided by social distancing throughout the rehoming process (and of course in their other day-to-day work). As you can imagine this new emergency adoption process takes a little longer and as a consequence the number of animals we have rehomed has fallen away slightly, but the process has worked well and has allowed over 80 animals to start a new life in their forever homes.

The last few months have been a challenging time for Little Valley, but our teams have pulled together to ensure that all our animals have continued to receive the best care and love they need. We have also had the unusual situation where on some occasions animal numbers have been lower than normal due to lockdown, but this has allowed our animals to have extra care and comfort as well as helped to reduce the pressure on our staff.

Our shops, again in accordance with government requirements, have also been closed since the end of March. This has had a devastating impact on Little Valley as our retail shops are one of our main sources of income. To further compound the situation, and despite the shops being closed, we have still had to pay running costs in terms of services and rent etc.

With the easing of lockdown measures we have now tentatively and very safely re-opened two of our shops, one in Budleigh Salterton High Street and the other in Cowick Street in Exeter. We are hoping that our customers will return as if the re-opening is successful in terms of income raised, we hope to reopen our other shops over the next few months.

In view of the continuing lockdown restrictions our AGM, shelter open days and numerous other fundraising events have all had to be cancelled. The only positive during this sad and difficult time has been the tremendous generosity and kindness of our supporters. All of us at Little Valley have been so humbled and amazed by your donations and gifts – thank you so, so much.

As we start to emerge out of lockdown our running costs are increasing, and we really need your support more than ever. If you could find it in your hearts to once again support us in whatever way you can, we would be so very grateful as we know that once we open our doors fully to the public we will see a surge in animals that need our care and support, which will further increase our running costs.

Finally, I wanted to take this opportunity to reassure our supporters that although the last few months have been a very challenging time for us all, Little Valley has weathered the storm and remains stable and strong, and with your continued support we will remain that way in the future.

Chief  Executive Officer

Coronavirus Update

It is now nearly four weeks since we sadly closed for visitors.  It has been a really difficult time and your generous support has been so encouraging and vital – thank you.

It seems that the Government’s help for charities that was announced last week offers absolutely no help for animal charities including Little Valley. I understand that those charities working on the frontline for coronavirus will be a priority, but I do wish there was a resilience fund for others in the charitable sector dealing with the knock-on effect of this situation such as us.

We are still very busy at Little Valley and we are currently caring for almost 100 animals, but with all our retail shops closed and no adoption fees we are now unable to generate the funds to run Little Valley. Our insurance doesn’t cover this kind of thing and with all our other external fundraising gone; we are more worried for the future than ever.  After nearly 30 years on our current site, Little Valley will always continue to try and do the best we can for animals in need for as long as we can and just keep hoping we will get through it.

In the middle of all this, pets of those taken ill or worse will be at huge risk and animal charities will be asked to help. We will respond where we can and we are still taking pets from those in dire need from both our local community and from the RSPCA inspectors. We have a number of dogs and cats in our kennels at the moment that are from extremely difficult backgrounds and need very special care. We are also providing advice by phone to people struggling to cope with their pets at this time. Finally, at a time when shopping can be difficult, we are providing pet supplies in the local area to ensure people’s pets get everything they need.

Thank you for all your support. You are helping us so much and it means the world. Let’s all hope that we will manage to pull through these tough times. Whether it’s donating via to our Coronavirus Emergency Appeal, ordering vital items via our Amazon Wishlist or just your lovely messages of support, it all really counts.

Everyone at Little Valley sends you their very best wishes at this time.

Hugh Lowson
Chief Executive Officer

EMERGENCY CORONAVIRUS APPEAL

Please help us to take care of the animals in the Shelter throughout the Coronavirus crisis

I hope you are all keeping well and safe in these worrying times.

Despite all that is going on, I wanted to reassure you that our dedicated and caring staff are continuing to look after the animals at the Shelter and we will continue to support the RSPCA Inspectors with any animal emergencies they may have.

Little Valley is an independent, separately registered charity from the main RSPCA and receives no funding from them or the Government towards it’s running costs, which are in the region of £3,000 per day. However, this current crisis means we are now facing a massive funding shortfall. Like all charities, we have had to close our charity shops – our main source of funding, suspend animal adoptions and cancel vital fundraising events.

Donations are at an all time low and some food supplies are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive and deliveries are taking far longer to reach us. It truly is devastating and somehow, with your support, we need to ensure that we can continue to care for the animals who desperately need our help at the Shelter and in the future.

We are appealing to our loyal supporters to kindly consider helping us through this crisis by making a donation, whatever you can afford.

PLEASE DONATE NOW

Online Donations

You can donate via Paypal (you do not need a Paypal account) using the links on our website.

Food Donations

We have food donation boxes in local supermarkets at Tesco Exmouth, Sainsbury’s in Alphington Exeter and Tesco Honiton.

You can also buy much-needed items from our Amazon wishlists – Amazon are having delivery and supply problems and are not always the most cost-effective, but you can at least see the sort of items we need right now if you would like to source these items elsewhere and get them delivered to us:

DOGS: http://amzn.eu/3SaOVPc

CATS: http://amzn.eu/23RCM4m

SMALL ANIMALS: http://amzn.eu/fUIjm2h

Whatever you can do to help Little Valley and our animals is greatly appreciated.

On behalf of the animals and all the staff at Little Valley, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued generous support. PLEASE KEEP WELL AND STAY SAFE.

Thank you.

Hugh Lowson
Chief Executive Officer

Coronavirus (Covid-19) Response

Following the Government’s current guidelines and restrictions to try and slow the spread of COVID-19, we are having to make the tough and sad decision to close Little Valley to the public until further notice. This is a temporary measure until the current crisis has passed. We have over 100 animals at Little Valley right now and we hope that by protecting our essential staff, we will be able to continue caring for all the animals that rely on us.

Animal Shelter

Unfortunately, that means will have to suspend further adoptions at this time in order to keep our staff safe.

Our staff are working tirelessly behind closed doors making sure that all our animals receive the same level of care, support and love that we are known for – Little Valley = Big Heart.

Getting In Touch

Although we are closed to the public, our phone lines will still be open from 11am until 4pm every day except Wednesdays. If you need help or advice, please get in touch via phone on 01392 439898 or email on info@rspca-littlevalley.org.uk.

If you have an emergency please call the RSPCA National Control Centre on 0300 1234 999.

Charity Shops

Sadly we have also had to close all our shops, which will have a very serious impact on Little Valley as we rely on our shops to provide some of the much needed income to run our animal shelter. We receive no funding from the Government and no direct funding from the RSPCA. We will, of course, keep all our supporters updated as the situation unfolds but we are sure you will agree, these are extraordinary and difficult times for everyone.

Events

We will inevitably have to cancel or postpone a number of events that we had planned for the spring and early summer and possibly beyond. Please keep an eye on our website and social media for details.

Volunteers

We know lots of you have been kindly offering to volunteer to help us at this time, but sadly we have had to cancel all our volunteers coming into the Shelter for the foreseeable future in order to safeguard everyone.

We have always been amazed by the wonderful support Little Valley receives from our local community and we really are truly grateful.

We know that everyone is affected by the speed with which COVID-19 has taken hold and many of our supporters may find themselves in a position of real uncertainty. But if you can spare anything at this time, perhaps the cost of your normal morning high street coffee or money you have saved on petrol if working from home, Little Valley needs you now more than ever before.

Latest Newsletter – March 2020

The March edition of the newsletter is now available.

Message from CEO, Hugh Lowson:

About a month ago we created our Spring newsletter, keeping you all up to date with what has been happening at Little Valley Animal Shelter. At the time this was written, everything was looking rosy and positive and we were looking forward to exciting times ahead with many events planned.

Since that time Covid-19 has rocked the world and all our lives have been turned upside down. As a result of this and the Government’s latest advice, I write to advise you that Little Valley Animal Shelter is now closed to the public until further notice. Sadly, and again in line with the Government’s instructions, we have also had to close all our shops.

All the events mentioned in our newsletter will be put on hold for the time being, but please do check our website and Facebook page for updates.

Please bear with us during these difficult times. Our animals need your support more now than ever before. Anything you are able to give to help us through the current health crisis would be greatly appreciated. Meanwhile, keep safe and stay home.

Kennel Rebuild Update – May 2018

The kennel rebuild goes on, despite delays due to the recent snow and then the endless rain, which created a sea of mud! Slowly, the empty site is beginning to resemble something that looks like a building. The bridge is now completed, timed just right before the snow came. The groundworks for the first block have been hampered by wet weather but it is now gaining height and the design is finally coming to life. Concrete base done, inner skins in and actual brickwork happening! If the better weather stays in place, the builders can get back on track.

Thank You to Tug-E-Nuff

Those great folks at Tug-E-Nuff have kindly donated us some of their brilliant bungee toys for the dogs in our care. It’s not easy being a dog in kennels, it can get pretty boring at times waiting for your new family to come along and choose you, so any toys that are tough enough to take too much doggy love are perfect to keep our canines occupied. Thank you!

Thank You to RS Groundworks Ltd

We have had another huge donation for our dog sensory garden project, this time lots of compost, bark chippings, sand and fixings from the wonderful RS Groundworks Ltd, who recently adopted Toby the dog from us.
