Animal organisations in the borough are able to apply for a grant of up to £10,000 to help them safeguard vulnerable pets.
Support Adoption For Pets (SAFP), a nationwide charity helping abandoned and homeless animals, is pledging £4,000 or £10,000 to other smaller animal re-homing organisations to celebrate its 10th year.
Amy Wilson, charity manager at SAFP, said: “We want to appeal to as many rescues as possible in offering financial aid as every re-homing centre is hugely worthwhile, particularly in its local area.”
To celebrate its decade helping vulnerable animals, SAFP has revamped the grants it has available with a deadline for applications on February 26.
Twenty £4,000 grants are available through the new Helping Paws award with the donation to go towards items such as microchips and scanners.

Ms Wilson added: “We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our 10th Birthday than to introduce an exciting new grant scheme. The tiered structure means that throughout the year there should be a grant relevant to every re-homing rescue in the country, big and small, starting with these.”
