Supporting animal charities is a core value for us at HK. We currently work with a number of local charities and are always keen to help others in need. Please take a look below at those we're currently supporting and get in touch if you feel there's one close to your heart that we could look to help.
In addition to this we have held regular events to raise money for local animals who needed specialist equipment or expensive surgery and again if you know of anyone who could use our support please contact us with the details.
The local charities that we’re currently supporting are;
Bramble’s Pet Food Bank Plymouth
Having started in September 2020 they started with the aim of supporting local people who have furry loved ones and are struggling to feed them in these challenging times. They’re still quite a new charity but the work they are already doing is helping so many and they continue to grow from strength to strength.

Friends of Rescue Dogs are continuing the rescuing and rehoming of dogs from Duskhunter Dog Rescue to F.O.R.D - Friends of Rescue Dogs. We have great kennels in place that offer full RBU and are very good at working with the dogs to get them assessed and ready for their forever homes.
They're a small team of people working together to save and rehome many desperate dogs in need. We have found wonderful homes for over 100 dogs in the South West and are hoping to continue to rescue and rehome many more.

Journey’s End Feline Sanctuary
Journey’s End is a sanctuary for elderly/special needs cats, set in a safe environment, cat pen is only used for initial assessment and introduction to resident cats and once assessed any cat ‘coming home’ to Journey’s End is given access to a secure, enclosed garden and is also able to free roam within the residence where they quickly become part of the family.
Sadly far too many older cats and ones with ‘issues’ get abandoned and neglected, struggling to survive on the streets. Journey’s End is their safe haven, where their needs are catered for. Whether it be visual impairments, obvious disabilities or they just need a safe retreat to live their final years, months or weeks being loved and cared for.
