Allsorts Dog Rescue

Allsorts Dog Rescue

Primarily setup to find homes for unwanted, unloved and abandoned dogs in Sussex. Many dogs are strays that have been picked up by various local councils and passed onto us for re-homing. In some cases, Allsorts take dogs that are 24hrs or less away from being destroyed.

Cootes often have donations of leftover food, treats, blankets & newspaper that we will give straight to Allsorts. They help rehome dogs locally.

Paws & Claws

Paws & Claws

A small cat rescue charity, founded in 1977 covering the Mid Sussex area. Paws & Claws have many lovely cats looking for adoption who would love a new home.

Cootes often have donations of leftover food, blankets, baskets & treats that we will pass on to Paws & Claws. We also do fundraising for the charity at Cootes, and give this money as a donation.

Raystede Animal Welfare

Raystede Animal Welfare

Raystede believe that every animal deserves to live a happy life free from cruelty and suffering. They rescue, rehome and provide sanctuary to more than 2000 animals each year.

Cootes put together a lovely box of goodies for the kids at Raystede this Christmas! We hope you enjoy all of your goodies!
