PlayforStrays

PlayforStrays PlayforStrays was created to bring positive enrichment to animal rescue centres all over the world.
(47)

PlayforStrays is a registered charity based in Northern Ireland, UK, and was created to bring toys and enrichment to street animals and shelters all over the world. Many charities do a fantastic job offering food and shelter to abandoned waifs and strays. Unfortunately the provision of toys and playthings are not always in budget. We hope, by delivering these small toys, it will allow these animal

s to relieve stress and boredom and bring a bit of play into their day. www.facebook.com/playforstrays

๐ŸŽ ๐ŸŽ„ We are delighted to launch our Christmas Shoebox Appeal for 2023! ๐ŸŽ„ ๐ŸŽ

This year we are supporting Play For Strays who provides a service to any no-kill animal shelter, globally, by donating toys and other items as deemed necessary at the time.

Play For Strays also works alongside charitable groups that assist the homeless community by providing coats, harnesses, toys, and food to their beloved animals.

๐Ÿ–ค Happy Negrita Day! ๐Ÿ–ค
On this day exactly 6 years ago, our Amazon Girl Negrita came limping into our lives. She is the true embodiment of resilience.
She has serious trust issues with those she doesn't know but I'm so pleased she trusts and chose me as her Dad. Our bond is unbreakable.
Our lives have changed immeasurably since that day, and it's all for the better.
Many of you reading this found the page because of her story from every corner of the globe and in turn it means Negrita has helped to save 1000's more animals, set up a sanctuary and stop other rescue's from closing their doors.
People say I saved Negrita's life that day, but she actually saved mine and the lives of 1000's more.

Two cat shelters and food from our lovely friends at Prevent Pet Poverty, plus extra food from you Strayers, was donated to a feral colony keeper this evening.
I have seen these cats with my own eyes and they must be one of the healthiest colonies I've ever seen. Credit to their keeper who is doing a truly fantastic job. We hope these shelters provide even more warmth on these horrible autumnal nights.

Via 15 people we're at a fab total of 77 mud mats, including the 20 that Mudcontrol have donated.
As you can see we are already getting bare ground and the animals are wading through it. Pygmy's hate the mud ๐Ÿ˜ฅ
We'd love to get at least one full pallet to keep everyone's feet dry and healthy this winter.

***Update - a TNR group is actively involved now and food donations are flowing - thanks everyone for coming together, it's the animals we care about afterall***

๐Ÿ“ข TNR Help Needed - Dunloy Area๐Ÿ“ข

One of our followers is struggling to care for a feral colony of c30 cats.
Most are spayed, but some are not and as we know it just takes one.
If any TNR groups can help, not CPL as they've already wiped their hands of it, then please reach out and we'll put you in touch directly.
PlayforStrays will bring as much food as possible to assist this animal lover but we don't have loads. So, any catfood donations to our drop off points would be hugely welcomed.
Thanks Strayers

Please help stop us getting stuck in the mud this winter.
Out of 1,500 nominations across the UK PlayforStrays is one of 28 that can benefit from the Mudcontrol annual charity campaign!
Visit https://www.mudcontrol.co.uk/product-page/play-for-strays and purchase these much needed slabs that literally float over the muddy patches that will inevitably happen in winter.
If we manage to get 20 slabs, they give us another 20 for free!!!!
If we get too many for our needs, then we will donate the rest to the two other NI charities nominated this year that includes Equine Halfway House and Crosskennan Lane.
Thank you Strayers!

๐Ÿ“ข Announcement ๐Ÿ“ข

We are finally delighted to share, after many years of searching, that we have a new home in the country ๐Ÿก

With multiple acres of rolling hills we've been tirelessly working behind the scenes to make a home, and now PlayforStrays has begun to welcome sanctuary animals, and create refuge and rewilding for our wild friends too.

We are NOT operating as a rescue and are NOT taking in animals from the public. We still operate to assist other rescues out there. But as this pic shows we will be offering sanctuary space from time to time to other rescue's that need it.

We will be offering volunteer opportunities soon and a chance to sponsor our residents too. Details to follow.

So, come with us as PlayforStrays enters its next phase and we hope to bring even more happiness to animals that deserve it.
