The Cats Protection League
I love all animals, wild and domestic, dogs who are our best friends as well as wild African dogs, and small cats as well as big cats. The presence of animals in our homes and lives means there is always a little bit of love when you need it. But unfortunately humans don’t, or can’t, always do the right thing by their pets, and that’s where charities such as this are so crucial
My Claudie, homed from the Cats Protection League, loved for nineteen years (ten of those with only one leg), remembered every day.
The Jim Cronin Foundation
Jim Cronin set up Monkey World. Aside from campaigning to end cruel practices such as the use of chimpanzees as photographer’s props in holiday resorts, he set up a sanctuary where monkeys who really need a home, whether they have come from a lab cage or an unsuitable home, can live out their lives peacefully. I support them, because they place the wellbeing of each individual animal as the highest priority. That’s really important to me. It’s all very well conserving a species (and don’t get me wrong, that’s pretty important too), but the experience of each individual animal is something we must never lose sight of.
Ros and her friend and fellow artist Di were honoured to be able to donate paintings in 2017 which were auctioned to raise money for the Foundation.
