"When I became CEO of Raystede in February, I certainly had no idea what was to come! Our finances are extremely challenging but with your amazing support this year, we are surviving. Thanks to you, Raystede can still be here in the months and years ahead.
We are quietly planning for our future gradual reopening and will be telling you as much as possible about this very soon. I would like to acknowledge the loyalty and commitment of all our staff, volunteers and supporters over the past few months.
A big part of our job is providing emotional and behavioural support to animals feeling insecure and worried. This is incredibly important to prepare all of our rescue animals for their new homes. We want to make sure their transition is as easy as possible so that they can feel confident & happy when going home with their new family.
The little trio of Dotty, Girly & April have required a huge amount of help from us during lockdown and it is your donations which have made this possible. This wonderful film was made by a member of staff from our Kennels team and we would like to share it with you as a way of saying Thank You for helping us through this increasingly difficult time."

Our kennels team set up an Easter egg hunt for our kennel dogs. Watch the video to meet some of the beautiful pooches who are patiently waiting for homes whilst rehoming is suspended.
Please note that the easter eggs used are specifically made for dogs and came from pets at Home. Human chocolate is toxic to dogs.
