Thank you for supporting Birmingham Dogs Home’s 2020 “It’s been a ruff year” Christmas Appeal.

It has been a challenging year for us all and particularly for our team of dedicated staff who have continued to care for homeless dogs throughout the months of lockdown.

We will be here on Christmas day too and with your support we can make it a special day for all of our four-legged friends still waiting for their forever homes, by raising funds for them all to have a Christmas Dinner.

Make a one-off donation to the Birmingham Dogs Home 2020 “It’s been a Ruff Year” Christmas appeal.


Holly Become a BDH Friend – from just a pound a week

Covid 19 has had a huge impact for BDH and as the uncertainty of 2021 lies ahead, we would be grateful if you would consider becoming a BDH Friend by donating just a pound a week. Knowing we have regular support means we can plan ahead, in the knowledge that we can continue to care for homeless dogs that need us next year.

When you become a BDH Friend you will receive a Friendship certificate, a pack of lovely BDH goodies, monthly doggies news updates, special Friendship discounts and exclusive invitations to special events and centre tours.

Wilson was rescued in a critical condition having been abandoned, tied to a lamppost. Your support can help us give dogs like Wilson a Christmas Dinner and all the care he needs until we can find him a new loving home.

Holly Send BDH Christmas E-cards this year, in lieu of paper ones.

Instead of sending a Christmas card this year, send a festive message or make a dedication to someone you love by putting a pawprint bauble on our virtual charity Christmas tree. You can share this with all of your friends and family. An environmentally and covid friendly way to send festive greetings and support Birmingham Dogs Home at the same time.
