Kennels & Cattery, Somerset

Fundraising

Every year we hold at least one event for the fund to help the chosen charities that do such a sterling job and play such an important role in helping the local community and animals in need. Your continued support in these events is always greatly appreciated as we look to continue and build on our past successes…

The Brian King Memorial Fund

The Brian King Memorial Fund was founded to celebrate Brian’s life and to raise funds for the British Heart Foundation and local animal charities, all particularly close to Brian’s heart. The fund was started by close family and friends and on the 8 July 2007 when we held a health pet and family fun day on beach lawns at Weston and raised over £4000, giving people a wonderful insight into the work done by the charities involved.

SOS sponsored dog walk

In 2009 we undertook an SOS sponsored dog walk with friends from the British Heart Foundation and many of the local animal charities including Holly Hedge and Westie Rescue along the beach of Weston. The dogs looking for new homes wore homemade hearts! Together we raised over £1200. 

In 2011 over 55 dogs and about 100 people walked for their chosen charity in the SOS sponsored dog walk. We raised over £1400 which was distributed to charities including Secret World, RSPCA, Dog Friends and Greyhound Rescue South West.

We had a fantastic fun day and dog show on the 14 June 2016 to celebrate 25 years here at the kennels and were overwhelmed at how many people came out to support us, over 900! Helen, Judy and the girls from the Weston Breast Cancer Support Group running the vintage tea room raised an amazing £1,137.50 which all goes to local women. The 20 plus charities raised over £1500. A truly amazing day made possible by a team of amazing volunteers.
