Lumpy Lodge is a non-profit solely self-funding community support service.
We rely solely on Donations, Sponsorship, Legacies and Fund Raising to keep us up & running with the hope that awareness will increase, & local & widespread support will help us to continue our much loved work with small animals 365 days every year.
The plight of small unwanted animals is escalating and on the increase, and when the mainstream shelters with funding are still full with waiting lists, & donations are 30-40% down on the average of one year ago & whilst we continue to tread through a recession........
We have a committed group of supporters whom we are tremendously thankful to for their commitment & ongoing support.
We hope that 2013 will be a prosperous year for us particularly following the 2012 Wetnose Animal Aid Awards sponsored by Burgess Pet Care, an Annual Star-Studded Event held annually in London where we were recognised for our hard work and presented :
'Winner Best Fibrevore Small Rescue Sanctuary'
Founded in 2002 we opened our home to the plight of small furries needing much loved care, a safe haven, but most importantly and in many cases medical aid.
We thank Grove Lodge Veterinary Group whom we heavily reply on for the very best medical care for all our animals and where necessary the expert diagnostic and surgical care of their veterinary surgeon of exotic pets.
We operate within a group network of small rescue sanctuaries within the South East of England to ensure these animals receive the care they deserve!
If you'd like a copy of our NEW L@@K brochure which includes a Booking Form for your ease of reference & especially if you are thinking of supporting us in the future then just send us your request and we'll pop one in the post!
We could'nt exist without the assistance of supporters offering their time and skills and we need YOU!
are many many ways you can help us and and it doesnt necessarily
involve being in contact with the piggies or bunnies if you wish not
to, so although cleaning, feeding, checking them over, and socialising
with them is a big part of our work you could help us by just simply
collecting up your NEWSPAPERS and delivering them to us!
duties would be donning a pair of rubber gloves and wearing your own
winter weather clothing suitable for mucky work! We will provide a
tabard if you'd prefer as extra protection.... cleaning out
the hutches, spray cleaning them where necessary, spray clean their
litter trays, re-line the hutches with newspaper, fill them full of
lovely hay & straw & interact with the bunnies that want your
you feel you would like to do more than just visit as a volunteer we
would love to hear from you! You may already have all it takes set up
at home to become a foster mum or dad....all in the comfort of your own
home? whilst we carry on the search to find them a permanent new home,
you'll have our full support!
Home Checkers & Transporters
Our time is precious and it is not always possible for us to get to visit potential adopters' homes to check that their accomodation is suitable as some animals in our care require special needs.
have any spare time, or only work part time, and drive a car but would
still like to help us as a volunteer, please do drop us a line and let
us know any times that suit you best! it may be that we need
transporters to move animals to either a new home, or to another rescue
shelter, or to the local vet or hospital for us
Maybe you are able to help with our fundraising events like running a
stall for us or maybe you would even like to organise your own sponsored
event (ie. bike ride, running a marathon, a sponsored swim, or a giant
cake bake on a coffee morning or at work) and raise funds to help us
continue our work.
You can also help us raise much needed funding as a security blanket for the animals in our care who are not as fortunate as some and who need regular ongoing medical care.
So if you have bunnies or piggies and you need a much needed break away you can let us take care of your animals either through home visit(s) or with our clean and professional boarding facilities. Places are extremely numbered so be sure to make enquiries early so as not to be disappointed.
DonationsWe are always sincerely grateful for any support and as we say it doesnt have to be in the physical mind ......you can help us be just simply DONATING through paypal, standing order, or easyfundraising!
