We're delighted to officially launch our Christmas campaign for 2017 - Animal Crackers!
We want to give something back to the animals we adore so much - and we need your help to do it.
We want to collect food, toys and accessories for the animals that need them the most - and split it all between local animal charities, who work tirelessly to provide care to our furry friends.
We ran the campaign last year and you donated thousands of pounds of goodies - we want to better that this time around.
We’ll be running the campaign over the next month until Monday, December 18.
We’ve teamed up with local businesses to act as drop-off points, where you can leave your donations for our furry friends.
All you have to do is take your donation into the drop off point, and we’ll do the rest.
So which charities will we be working with?
We’ve chosen six worthy causes, and we’ll be featuring each of them in the run up to Chirstmas.
Barnsley and District Animal Welfare
Royston Animal Welfare
Barnsley Animal Rescue Charity
RADAR Dog Rescue
Willow Dog Rescue
