There’s never been a better time to support the work of the North Devon Animal Ambulance (NDAA), one of
North Devon’s best-loved local charities. From the smallest donation to a major role in our fundraising or operations, we have a volunteer role for anyone who wants to help North Devon’s animals.
Your gift goes to animals, not salaries
All money donated or raised through NDAA fundraising activities (special events, collections and charity shops) is used to care for the county’s animals. Unlike some animal charities, the NDAA doesn’t have any paid employees – and we don't intend to do so in the future.
Quite simply, our work for North Devon animals wouldn't be possible without the generous volunteer help and fundraising efforts from the local community –YOU!
The number of animals needing rescue keeps increasing. No matter how carefully we manage our funds and prioritise allocation of money, the North Devon Animal Ambulance relies on a continuous stream of funds. It's another way that you can help North Devon animals.
There are many ways that you can support the NDAA.
Come to an NDAA fundraising event
– buy and give generously
Every year sees many NDAA fundraising events across the county. Visit the NDAA website regularly and watch the local media for announcements. Then come along, join in the fun and help the animals at the same time.
Help at an NDAA event or at
one of our charity shops
As a small local charity, we're always keen to hear from enthusiastic volunteers who can give a few hours to help in one of our charity shops in Barnstaple, Bideford or Braunton.
Alternatively, please come and browse the constantly changing range of quality items on sale in the shops. Or donate good condition items that we can sell.
Hold your own NDAA fundraising event
Could you make something to sell, bake a cake or think up a new fundraising idea? Everything helps, from a Victoria sponge or a jar of jam to an international fundraising trip like the one that Keith Pugsley made to raise funds for the animal ambulance. Whether you make marmalade or drive to Africa for us, you know every single penny raised will go to help North Devon’s animals.
Join the NDAA 100 Club
As a member of the NDAA 100 Club you pay £5 per month to the NDAA by standing order and have the chance of winning £100 in our monthly draws.
Make a donation
Every donation makes a difference (and every penny goes on the animals). What's even more helpful are regular donations by standing order. These give you a safe, cost-effective and easy way to make a regular contribution to help North Devon animals. And you’ll be providing secure funding that helps us plan ahead. If you’d like to donate, please ask for a Gift Aid form. That way, your gift will be increased by 20p for every £1.00 you donate.
To set up a standing order please contact us.
Include a legacy in your will
What better way could there be to say 'thank you' to a lifetime of pleasure from Devon's animals than to include a legacy in your will. Please ask us for advice about the most effective way to do this.
