New Hope Animal Rescue

Raised by 739 people in 19 months
Friendship Vegan Shoes are raising money for NEW HOPE ANIMAL RESCUE, we urgently need your help and support.

The wonderful New Hope Animal Rescue are desperately in need of a new home. Some of you will be aware of the tireless work that goes on at NHAR but most of you wont know how the small but dedicated team (headed by the saviour of London's most exposed and defenseless dogs Niall Lester) work around the clock to save those in the most need.

We are asking you to help us enable them continue their work rescuing animals that desperately need their love, care and expertise.

NHAR are in urgent need of expansion in order to continue to meet the massive demands that are made on them to keep saving the lives of the very most vulnerable. We have a sizeable target of £300k, we know this is a big ask but we believe, with your help and support, we can do it.

NHAR rescue and rehabilitate a wide range of animals from dogs and cats, small domestics and birds to horses, pigs and farmed fowl. Their speciality is concentrating on the worst areas of neglect.

Expansion onto a large site would phenomenally increase the number of animals the organisation could save and help set up a long standing sanctuary that could go on working far into the future. If we can move them to a bigger location they would be set up to receive rescued farmed animals such as lambs and calves as well as homeless domesticated ones.

It has taken many years to build NHAR up to the volume of rescue it currently performs at but the organisation is struggling to continue in its current location due to the lack of space. Having seen some perfect examples of where all their complex needs would be met they have humbly put forward their request for aid.

NHAR is an independent, non destruct rescue (no kill) dedicated to helping animals on death row, in emergency situations and those with medical needs that are hard to rehome.

Aiming to help as many animals as possible New Hope will often take the animals that have been turned away elsewhere.

NHAR currently have no paid staff and are run entirely by volunteers, including the rescue founders, so every penny goes to the animals.
If you can spare anything to help the rescue reach it's goal, that would have such a positive, life changing effect for so many animals, please donate.
The further this is shared the more hope there is. Please hit the share button ❤️

Hello everyone, as you probably know New Hope have made the move which is incredibly exciting news. The hard work starts now as they have a lot of building and prep work to do to secure all the areas needed. We are still raising as much as we can to enable this amazing new sanctuary to give so much back to the animals.
Please keep sharing and giving where possible and thanks to everyone who has made it possible so far. xx

Hello everyone! I'm sure most of you will have heard the incredible news that finally New Hope Animal Rescue have exchanged on their new property in Kent.

They now have almost 12 acres of land which will mean they can do so much more than they already do. Right now though there are many, many things that need to be done. Please if you can share and donate. If you can't give then please share this so that we can help all the animals in need.

Thank you so much for all your continued support! xx

As we come to the end of 2017, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year. Thank you to all the kind people who have shared and donated to our fundraising page, without your amazing help and support we wouldn't have got this far.

While the cogs and wheels are moving in the background we are still here and any further action is still valued by us.

Once again, thank you and have a brilliant 2018! xx

Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. I can't describe the necessity for this to happen. It is becoming increasingly difficult to operate such a high number of rescues from a London house and a rented block of kennels, half an hour apart from each other. Many of you know we work full time too aswell as running New Hope as we do not want to take a wage or any money away from the animals, but it's tough to say the least and combined we are working 19 hour days most days to keep up. Not helped by the lack of space we have or the distance between our current sites. We need to bring it all together, hence the need for land. And then we can really start to utilise volunteers and make New Hope a bigger and better organisation, one I know it has the capabilities of becoming. We will never give up on rescue but it feels like a battle to continue in out current situation. Your support in this and the possibility that we can improve and move forward is an amazing thing. So thank you, sincerely. New Hope has helped a lot of animals, and a lot of people, over the years and it humbling when everyone comes together like this and helps New Hope. We've got a really really long way to go but I am grateful for every penny and every share ❤️ Please keep going

We've got 14 different people viewing our home today. We had to move all the dogs to the kennels and we are now hiding in the cattery looking like the weirdos that we are. It will be sad to say goodbye to our home. And it's been a really amazing home, a sanctuary for so many animals, our little T and to be honest for us too. Feeling pretty sad about it but the rescue needs to grow and the future of New Hope and the animals it can help are what matters. We are putting everything we have into this, literally, so please keep them crossed someone puts in an amazing offer. Happy, sad, excited, scared but very focused

To everyone who has donated thus far.... I can't thank you enough ❤️ To be honest I hate this kind of thing and I hate to ask but I learnt many years ago that pride must be put to the side when it comes to animal rescue. We are so so close yet feel so far. Our second offer has been declined on the property that would be perfect for New Hope's Sanctuary and we just need a final push to make this happen, we are very nearly there. We have now put our home on the market and are giving everything we have personally and will both be continuing to work full time to make the sanctuary viable. Those that follow our work will see the volume of animals we already help, imagine how many we can save with so much more space. We need make this happen but we need your help. PLEASE SHARE and if you can DONATE please do, no matter how small or if anyone has any fundraising ideas please let us know

As some of you now know, thanks to the successful sale of our home, the move is happening and we are in the process of buying a sanctuary. Our attentions now turn to fencing and the kennel build. We won't be able to help anymore dogs until our kennels are proper and correct, and as you can see from the work we do it is imperative we are operational as soon as possible. If you can please share and if anyone can donate, no matter how small, it would be great. We must keep up with the demand on the rescue no matter what else is going on
