Friends of Little Valley
You could join the Friends of Little Valley. You will receive a newsletter throughout the year full of information and news from the Shelter. The membership helps towards the cost of printing and posting the newsletter. Any monies left over or any donations go directly back into funding the running of the Shelter.
In order to keep costs down, please let us have your email address so that we can email you the newsletter rather than printing and posting it.
And if you can join via Standing Order, we can make even more cost savings.
Membership costs: £7 per adult, £12 joint, £5 concession (OAP/under16)
To join the Friends of Little Valley, please download a Friends Application Form or call the Shelter on 01392 439898.
Could you organise a fundraising event for us or join in one of our own events? You can set up a Just Giving page by clicking on the button below and get people to donate or sponsor you.
Fundraising online is the best way for us to receive money and we recommend JustGiving because:
- Gift Aid is added automatically, which is an extra 25% on top of every eligible donation.
- It reduces admin costs for us.
- It’s easier for you – there’s no need to run around with a sponsorship form, collecting cash and cheques.
- You’ll raise more for us – the average online donation is £30 compared to £15 offline.
Do you own a vehicle that you want to sell or get rid of? Then please think about donating it to us through Giveacar! Giveacar raises money for UK charities by scrapping and selling old cars. They provide a nationwide FREE service which:
- Arranges the collection of the vehicle from your home
- Depending on its age and condition, recycles it at an authorised facility or sends it to auction
Scrap donations raise about £100 for the charity (depending on the price of metal) while auction cars can raise much more.
To arrange donation of a car, visit www.giveacar.co.uk or call 020 7736 4242, quoting RSPCA Little Valley Animal Shelter as your preferred charity.

If you are a regular online shopper, why not shop through Easyfundraising and support Little Valley at the same time? It takes just 2 minutes to sign up. Easyfundraising helps charities, schools, sports clubs, community groups, and other good causes to raise money when their supporters shop online. It works in a similar way to many other loyalty shopping sites, but instead of earning points when you shop ,you raise a donation for your cause instead. It’s as simple as that! You can shop with over 2,000 well known stores and each will donate up to 15% of what you spend. For example, John Lewis will donate 1%, Amazon 2.5%, The Body Shop 6%, some insurance retailers will even donate up to £30 simply for taking out a policy with them!
The Safe Haven scheme was launched in 2008 to offer supporters the opportunity to give a regular amount every month to sponsor a dog kennel, cat pen or rabbit run at Little Valley Animal Shelter.
Little Valley cares for hundreds of animals who are abandoned, unwanted, stray, injured or victims of cruelty and abuse. Little Valley is their Safe Haven, where they receive first class care and attention before rehoming.
To sponsor a dog kennel, cat pen or rabbit run, please download the Safe Haven Application Form or call the Shelter on 01392 439898.
