As of 2019, we are no longer able to claim Gift Aid on your adoption fee. Gift Aid allows charities to claim an extra 25p from the UK government for every £1 you give.
Without this government contribution, we rely on the generosity of our adopters to help keep the rehoming team running and to ensure that we can continue to rescue and care for those dogs who are not yet lucky enough to have found their forever home. We would be so grateful if you would consider adding 25p for every pound of your donation , which is why we’ve included this additional amount to your adoption fee.
If you’re unable to cover the full Gift Aid amount, we’d be grateful for whatever additional donation you’re able to contribute - thank you.
Alternatively, you can pledge your support to Wild at Heart Foundation by setting up a monthly donation which provides us with an invaluable means of funding our ongoing overseas work.
