FLYING THE FLAG FOR ANIMALS

The annual Flag Collection Days on 25th and 26th September were hugely successful and £727 was raised for The Stubbington Ark Animal Shelter.

Thank you very much to everybody who stopped at our volunteers blue collection tins and gave so generously.

We are grateful to Hayling Hardware, The Co-operative in Elm Grove, Lloyds Pharmacy in West Town, Hayling Fruiterers and the No 1 Shop in Mengham who welcomed our volunteers to collect in front of their premises.

As always, we are indebted to Mr Patel of The News Boutique in Mengham who very kindly permitted us to set up a table-top sale in front of his shop.

The Stubbington Ark provides shelter, love and care for all manner of animals: domestic, wildlife, farm stock and exotics.

So far in 2017 we have re-homed 161 dogs, 344 cats, 60 rabbits and 34 miscellaneous. We have taken in 429 wildlife and been able to release 71. Four feral cats have been released back into the wild and 105 dogs, 166 cats, 47 rabbits and 22 miscellaneous animals have been neutered.

Without your continuous support and kind donations not a single animal could have been helped. Therefore, on behalf of all the resident animals THANK YOU.

Our next fund raising event will be a special coffee morning on Saturday 25th November at the URC hall. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
