Support from local businesses makes a huge difference

There are many ways that businesses can make  a difference to L.A.A. Financial donations are essential for us to continue our work, expert skills help us to develop and grow and time given through volunteering makes a huge difference to what we can achieve. 

Corporate volunteering 
We have different types of corporate volunteering that you can get involved with:

  • Practical Projects – team volunteering days typically involve painting, gardening or something more technical such as refitting a kitchen or storage space.
  • Skills Sharing – we always appreciate contact from businesses looking to share some of their skills, knowledge, expertise and time with us. This could be in areas such as marketing, retail or IT. If you think you can help, please get in touch. 
  • Fundraising - as well as supporting local causes, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes can have a positive impact on your company and staff team. What's more bonding than working together for a good cause? Other benefits include improved brand awareness, the opportunity to engage with your community and networking. From payroll giving to office bake sales, collecting donations to sponsoring a kennel, we love the ideas and involvement of local businesses.  

We are very happy to recognise publicly the time, money or skills shared with us in our publicity materials and social media. We are lucky to have a number of companies support us over the last few years and, in particular,  we would like to thank: 

Mars Petcare, Melton

The renowned pet food company is a great supporter of L.A.A. (and indeed many other rescue centres) and has helped us with everything from designing a community garden to building an adventure playground for dogs.    


The London-based pet insurance company has helped us with various projects over the years, including funding new notice boards and contributing to our training barn. 

Barrie Stephen, Leicester  

Local hairdressing entrepreneur Barrie Stephen is an Ambassador for L.A.A. and a dedicated fundraiser. A big animal lover and a well-respected member of the local business community, Barrie has organised many fundraising events, all of which have had his trademark energy and style. Look out for Barrie's events on our website and social media.  

Pingle Pet Store, Ashby Road, Barwell 

Pingle is a champion of our work and have kindly provided prizes for our pet shows over the years. 

The Pets Foundation

The Pets Foundation is the charitable arm of Pets at Home. The Foundation helps animal charities deliver fundraising campaigns in-store and supports them via a grants programme. Most recently, their funding has allowed us to build a new cat sanctuary, the Purrfect Palace.
