At Blue House we support a number of animal and non-animal charities through donations and support. Some of our staff members have contributed to charity neutering trips abroad, improving the lives and welfare of dogs and cats in places such as Spain and Grenada. We also help with supplies of medication and equipment for charity projects, and can forward donations of medical / dental equipment as necessary.

The only specialist national charity for people in their last years and their much loved, much needed companion animals.
A network of 15,000 volunteers “hold hands” with owners to provide vital loving care for their pets. They keep them together - for example, walking a dog every day for a housebound owner, fostering pets when owners need hospital care, fetching the cat food, or even cleaning out the bird cage, etc.
When staying at home is no longer an option, they have a Pet Friendly Care Home Register which lists care homes and retirement housing happy to accept residents with pets and, providing previous arrangements have been made with them, they will take on life time care of a bereaved pet.
Worldwide Veterinary Service
WVS provide animal welfare charities all over the world with a sustainable veterinary resource, providing vital aid that would otherwise not be available. They provide veterinary aid parcels, disaster response, volunteer teams and training and education all over the world. Their volunteer teams are made up of veterinary surgeons, veterinary nurses, students and other unqualified volunteers. Details of available trips can be found on their website.
Founded in 1891, Dogs Trust (formerly the National Canine Defence League) is the largest dog welfare charity in the UK. Their mission is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction.
Each year they care for around 16,000 dogs at their nationwide network of eighteen Rehoming Centres.
No healthy dog is ever destroyed.
From humble beginnings in 1927, Cats Protection has grown to become the UK's leading feline welfare charity.
They now help around 218,000 cats and kittens every year through their network of over 250 volunteer-run branches, 29 adoption centres and two homing centres.
Their work doesn't stop there, however: they also provide an array of cat care information via their publications, website and helpline, promote the benefits of neutering to prevent unwanted litters from being born and becoming the abandoned cats of tomorrow, and seek to educate people of all ages about cats and their care.
The RSPCA is a unique animal welfare charity, who are proud to be the oldest welfare charity around. They were the first to introduce a law to protect animals, and they work hard to ensure that all animals can live a life free from pain and suffering.
Through their campaigns they raise standards of care and awareness of issues for the animals who have no voice. They push for laws to be changed, improving the welfare of animals on farms, in research labs, in the wild, in paddocks or in our homes.
Through investigations and prosecutions they stand up to those who deliberately harm animals to send out a clear message - we will not tolerate animal abuse.
Their highly trained officers tackle neglect and cruelty at every level, and are working hard to stamp out large-scale serious, organised and commercial animal cruelty. Animals can rely on the RSPCA to rescue them when they need them most. To rehabilitate them wherever possible, provide them with the very best veterinary care and to find them new homes, either through
