Bath Cats and Dogs Home, Support Adoption For Pets

Bath Cats and Dogs Home took in over 1,500 animals last year alone and, thanks to the public they managed to reunite 212 strays with their owners, and find loving, forever homes for 1,170.

"We are Bath Cats and Dogs and Dogs Home and applied for one of the Support Adoption For Pets £50,000 celebration grants in 2014.

We wanted to build a fully enclosed cat garden for our cats – a serene space away from our cattery where our cats could play, relax and socialise with our staff and volunteers. In addition we wanted to transform our existing dog exercise paddocks into fun and interesting enrichment areas filled with innovative features like sandpits to dig in and textured surfaces to investigate; all designed to keep our dogs entertained.

The application process was simple and the friendly Support Adoption for Pets team were helpful throughout the whole process; we were thrilled when they surprised us with a visit in July 2014 armed with a giant £50,000 cheque.

Our cat garden was completed in July 2015 and our cats and kittens love exploring it. The transformation of the dog paddocks is due to be completed by the end of 2015 and we can’t wait for our dogs to start using them.

Thank you Support Adoption For Pets for transforming the lives of our cats and dogs and awarding us with this amazing grant"
