For 25 years ‘Friends of the Animals’ has helped many thousands  of sick, injured and unwanted animals and we have done 28,800  spays/neuters. Rescues include: a dog left locked in a flat which was  being bulldozed, ducks that had been stoned - and others who’d been  shot. We’ve helped swans and cygnets, usually suffering from  botulism or dreadful injuries inflicted by discarded fishing line. We’ve  removed litters of puppies and kittens from sealed boxes and  cupboards and we rescued a dog who’d been thrown in a bramble  thicket with his four legs bound together with wire. We’ve scooped  hedgehogs from drains and untangled them from strawberry netting  and we’ve pulled animals from water. We thought we’d seen it all, but  were astounded to find a young cat who’d been badly injured in a road accident – left at the bottom of the garden to die – as the owner had  no money ! We’ve done all this .....
25 years of CARING
BUT NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP TO BUILD ON THAT SUCCESS AND SAFEGUARD THE FUTURE
We urgently need your help please and by sponsoring a  BRICK for just £10-00 (or multiples thereof) you will enable  us to put another “brick in the wall”. We’ve got just over a  year to reach the target and together I know we can make it.  So…………please be part of a better future for thousands of  animals.   Heartfelt thanks Helen Sinclair MBE (Founder)
Next year we hit a crisis, as the lease on our Current Base  expires! A builder has calculated the number of bricks needed to secure permanent premises for the Charity and we’ll be  working extra hard to raise the £200,000 it will take 
THE TOTAL SO FAR We have got off to a FLYING start and so far our VITAL brick appeal we have raised a wonderful  £110,820-00  towards our target. Thank you to everyone, from Rock Stars to M.Ps  who have so far brought bricks. From the U.S.A. to Australia, and from Scotland and Wales to the Isle of Wight, Thank you.

MANY MANY THANKS To everyone who kindly  supported our appeal to  replace the POLY-  TUNNEL at the Sanctuary  near Stratford upon Avon. The Polytunnel is used to  a) store feed and crucial  items and b) to offer  protection for elderly or  poorly animals whilst they  are being treated. It was  therefore crucial to  replace the covering as  soon as possible. YOUR support has  enabled a new cover to  be installed. The pictures  show just how sizeable it  is and how  important it is  to the animals that rely  upon us.

TED could do with a bit of help please.
TED is only 14mnths old. He has gone from living here - in  the Midlands (above left), surviving a fire, being abused  and having a leg amputated to being taken to one of our  Foster homes near our Newport H.O.  So far this poor soul  has been through hell and we will need to spend a lot of  time, money and effort on returning Ted’s trust of humans.  If you can help, with a donation of ANY size it really will  make a difference to this lovely dog. 
RICK WAKEMAN & MILLIE
Rick Wakeman is without doubt  the country’s leading Rock  Keyboard player and Friends of  the Animals is honoured to have  his support as one of our Patrons.  At Medina Theatre on Feb 6th he  put on a superb show and spent a  great deal of his precious time  talking to and supporting the  Charity. He almost got to take  Millie home with him!!. 
Rick has always been  generous with his time and  support and he helped us  raffle our Valentine Dog for  £168-00 on the night and  presented it to the lucky  winner at the end of his show.  Rick is with Alan, Anne, Helen,  John, Sarah, John, Di, Maxine  and of course Millie and Ruby.
