Are you able to donate blankets and toys to comfort lost or abandoned dogs?

Abandoned dog

Lambeth Council provides temporary housing for around 160 dogs a year. They are usually handed to us by members of the public or picked up as strays by our dog warden, often after being abandoned by their owners.

Sometimes we can reunite lost pets with their relieved family, but many dogs end up at Battersea Cats and Dogs Home, who do a fantastic job trying to rehome them. Some of the dogs have been mistreated and need plenty of care and attention, and all dogs find a Kennel environment distressing and scary.

How you can help

We are urgently looking for donations of as many old blankets, spare dog toys, or tins of food or dog biscuits, as you can give. With your help we can use these donations to provide a more comforting and less stressful environment for these dogs while they are with us.

If you can help, please post or drop off your donation to our Wanless Road Depot, 26 Wanless Road, London, SE24 0HW.

Update, Nov 2014:
A big thank you to everyone who donated items to our Wanless Road Depot. Due to the wonderful response we are not currently requiring donations.

If you have items you would like to donate please contact your local animal rescue charity.

    Thank you to everyone for your generous donations, we’ve received a fabulous response and now have plenty of items for the time being. The dogs are all very grateful for the extra blankets to snuggle up to and the treats and toys really help to settle them into their kennel.
