Christmas Charity - Animal Rescue Volunteers Lichfield

This Year we are collecting during Advent for the Animal Rescue Volunteers Group.


The children had a little talk in assembly from two of their members about the work they do. They also meet Max a rescue dog who came to say hello and hope that you will help other dogs and animals like him who were abandoned.  The small local animal charities are really struggling this year with the cost of living - trying to keep the animals feed and housed and warm. Sadly, so many animals are being abandoned and these charities need our support to help them - help the animals who through no fault of their own have been left alone, with no home and no one to look after them.


Animal Rescue Volunteers

We are a group of friends who formed our Community Group in 2019 to support smaller or less well known animal rescues and sanctuaries by fundraising & collecting donations for them.


Our group live in & around Lichfield, Tamworth, Rugeley and Burton. We are all volunteers and we have chipped in financially to buy our materials and insurance so that all the money we raise and all the items that are donated to us go directly to help the homeless animals and wildlife rather than on overheads.


  • We collect donations including: pet food, treats, cat litter, bedding, pet toys, newspapers, towels and blankets. We then distribute these between the local rescues that we support
  • We fundraise and all the money raised is then donated to the local rescue charities
  • We go out to scan pets that have been found to see if they have a microchip and if so they can hopefully be reunited with their owners
  • We help to find new homes for pets that are being given up for various reasons, as we do not have a centre, we cannot take animals in ourselves but we have set up a "direct rehoming" system where we search for new homes, carry out a homing visit and then if suitable put the old and new homes in touch with each other


In the future

We would also like to run a project where we can assist with the cost of neutering and spaying local animals for people

that can not afford to get this done. Again, having the funds to do this is an issue currently.


We have our own page on Facebook - Animal Rescue Volunteers and also on Instagram - rescue0421 as well as our own website -
