The Charity for 2018
HEART was formed in 1996 and is based in the Bristol area.
Their aim is to find secure new homes for animals that have been abandoned or whose owners can no longer care for them. HEART help dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, goats and many other animals throughout the South West and South Wales.
HEART is run informally by Gill and Ange from their homes in Bedminster Down and Keynsham respectively and they are supported by the invaluable assistance of a stalwart band of fosterers.
Generally funds are raised by donations from the public, either on a general basis or on adoption of a rescued animal or in the form of sponsorship of animals whilst they are in foster care or undergoing veterinary treatment. Occasionally they receive grants from animal welfare trusts and donations from sponsored events.
This is where we come in.
JFTW will be welcoming HEART to our 2018 convention with the goal of raising funds to help continue their hard work. In addition to accepting donations from attendees, we will also be holding an Art Auction for artists to submit their work to sell to attendees with a percentage of the final offer going towards the charity.y.
