We are grateful for all donations, no matter how small. Your generosity will mean that we can continue to help dogs, cats and horses in LIFE's care. Thank you!

When you donate to us you can improve quality of life for a dog, cat or horse in need almost instantly. We sometimes have one-off urgent and specific donations, such as when we find an animal in need of urgent medical attention, but we always need more general funds to care for our rescued animals and to pursue LIFE’s Outreach Work. Currently we have over 160 dogs ,cats and horses under our immediate care and we support more in local Roma areas. Each and everyone of them needs to be fed and watered daily, which takes time and management. As well as funds for dog food, cat food and hay for the horses, we need funds to pay LIFE’s indispensable local staff. We do not and have never received grants or regular funding, and rely solely on the generosity of people like you to fund all aspects of our work.

Tools, equipment and essential infrastructure also demands constant financial investment. We need to build and repair fences, kennels and pens, and buy fuel for the little car LIFE uses for supplies and Outreach Work. We always need funds for barrows, buckets and bowls we use to feed, clean up after and water so many animals. To pursue educational and vaccination campaigns we need financial support - the list really is endless :)
