Furry Festive Gift Giveaway

7th Heaven are planning to bring cheer to some elderly pet owners throughout Northern Ireland

over the next few weeks.

 

Would you like to be one of Santa Paw’s special helpers?

We’re looking for volunteers to help us deliver gifts for their pets. We may also need some help preparing the gifts.

  • You need to be available to deliver gifts between 6th – 19th December (flexible)

  • Have your own transport

  • Festive attire is optional, but good fun!

We’re sorry we can’t offer any monetary reimbursement, but we hope that these random acts of kindness will bring you a lot of joy and happiness too, especially during this difficult time

If you would like to volunteer to help us, please email us to animalrescuetrust@hotmail.com. Please let us know your contact number, area you live and how you will be able to help.

 

 

 

 

 


All details of our events are on our events page if you would like to help out at these.

We also raise awareness of animals through World Animal Day on 4 October each year and especially close to our heart, to promote the poor feral cats in the run up to Global Feral Day on 16 October. We introduced Feral Cat Month in 2014 and during this time we donated most of the cat food given to us to helping feed Feral / Community Cats. We are looking for help to promote this event every year, perhaps you could help raise awareness, collect food or let us know of cats that could benefit from this.Thank you from all the furries!   

 

 Daisy Day- 24 December - we are asking everyone to spare a few moments on this day each year to remember all the innocent animals killed in war.

You can help animals by:

 

  • Taking responsibility for your own animal. If you are thinking of putting your animal up for rehoming - please think again. Animals will nearly always be better off in the home enviroment they are used to, rather in a Pound or Sanctuary.  

 

  • Keeping your pet in, keep it safe, as many animals go missing or get killed on the roads.

 

  • Not ignoring a stray animal if it turns up on your door - it's probably starving and in need of help. It's picked you for a reason - will you help it? Will you give it food? Can you give it shelter? And will you contact anyone to see if it is lost (eg council, vets, charities, neighbours, loal shops)?

 

  • Offering an animal a loving home.

 

  • Caring and treating your own pet, or indeed any animal, with love and respect. And please encourage others to do so too.

 

  • For us, these suggestions are the most important things you can do to help animals!

There are various ways to help 7th Heaven:

 

 We are currently looking for the following help:

 

- October is a very special month for 7th Heaven. This is the month that we raise awareness of animals. 4 October is World Animal Day. This global event is dedicated to raising awareness about the plight of animals throughout the world. 16 October is Global Feral Cat Day. This international event highlights the plight of these poor, unfortunate, unwanted, and for many, unloved animals. 7th Heaven's 'Feral Cat Month'event runs for the whole of October. We collect and donate a lot of pet food and provide shelters to feral or community cats during this period. We try to raise awareness during this time too.

Would you like to help promote any of these? This is not about raising funds, but helping raise awareness of all the animals who need our help & support.

 

- Safe permanent homes for feral or semi - feral cats and providing food - see Project WildCat 

 

- Help with trapping and neutering of feral cats - see Project WildCat

£100 High Street Voucher

We would like to thank the people who have contacted us about this asking us what we need. We always need cat food as we help many through our Pet Food and Project Wildcat schemes and have quite a few cat and rabbit rescues in with us with different tastes.

Ways of helping:

- we have a Sainsbury Pet food bank donation point in Sainsbury's Forestside where pet food can be donated

Gift cards can also be bought and donated eg

- Doagh Equestrian (where we bulk buy pet food and it keeps it local)

-Pets at Home (where we can buy food and activity centres etc)

- any supermarket that sells pet food

However this voucher is for you to spend and enjoy and we would not want to take this treat from you, so please do not feel obliged to donate to us. It's all about helping the local community.

Sponsor an Enclosure 

By sponsoring an enclosure, you will be helping to provide each animal staying there with bedding, toys, treats and heating. We will provide the love and care that they need.

 

Poppy's story

My name is Poppy. I was pregnant & paralysed from being shot. 7th Heaven took me in, paid for the operation to remove the bullet and provide a nice, warm, safe enclosure where I could rear my beautiful babies, Peanut & Truffles. I have since successfully been rehomed. Now other animals with similarly sad stories will be staying in this enclosure. By being a sponsor, you will be helping them, until they too find a loving home 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sponsor a Long Term Resident

Whilst we would love to be able to rehome all the animals we rescue, realistically there may be some that may need to remain with us, for whatever reason, long term or for the rest of their days. We will provide them with all their home comforts, lots of love and any treatments they may require throughout. 

If you are interested in sponsoring an enclosure or Long Term Resident, it costs £50 a year. Please e-mail us to: animalrescuetrust@hotmail.com  or complete the Become a Friend below and send it to us

An update on Ginge

We took Ginge in after his owner and his cats were evicted. The owner was ill so contacted us to take them in. When we went to collect him Ginge had all but given up, lying in the garden in heavy rain. He really wasn’t very well and was dehydrated. Our vet took care of him and carried out many tests. He is now being treated for hyperthyroidism and has a heart murmur and will need ongoing vet monitoring. It is likely he will remain with us, but at least he will have a warm home and plenty of food and loves snuggles. A big thank you to

Roxie (female) and Dixon (male) are looking for a quiet indoor home together. They are neutered and about 5 years old. They are gentle cats who like to be stroked. They came in quite a while ago and they can be fussy with the food they eat but are great cat companions

Oscar

Oscar had been abandoned over a year ago and local neighbours had been feeding him. They were very fond of him and were concerned when they saw that he seemed to not be eating and wondered if he had an infection. We were contacted after no other charities would help. He is now in safe with us and making a full recovery. It was touch & go for some time as half his face was hanging off and it was badly infected. It is now almost healed and he is a totally different cat!

These cats were rescued from an abuse situation and are very nervous of others because of this. in addition they had long-term health conditions, such as respiratory, cold and severe eye problems. They will remain with us for quite some time while we stabilise them and rehabilitate them.

Sam and Twinkle

These 2 cats came in from an abusive situation along with quite a few others from a 'hoarding' situation. They were all very ill and it took a long time for them to get back on their feet. They will have ongoing respiratory and eye problems. We have tried to rehome him and the people were brilliant, but they just would not settle and became  very agressive, which is so out of character as they are sweet but timid. We have accepted that they do not want to be separated and want to live out their lives here
