Appledown Rescue & Rehoming Kennels
Registered Charity No. 1116848 01525 220383


It is not difficult to understand how the cost of running an organisation like Appledown is huge! Bills for staff, food, utilities, vets, cleaning, etc can and do run in to thousands of pounds every month. A large part of our income is from donations and we cannot continue to do what we do without them. The generosity of our supporters has saved many lives over the years.

By donating today, you can immediately start to change a rescue dog’s life for the better:

  • £10 will keep a dog safe in a kennel for 24 hours. It covers staff care, utilities and cleaning.
  • £12 will pay for flea and worming treatment
  • £20 will pay for one part of a course of vaccinations for a stray
  • £80 will pay for castrating a stray
  • £120 will pay for spaying a stray
