Shops & Gifting
Our Charity Shops make an important contribution to our work both in terms of awareness and raising well needed funds to care for the animals we rescue. If you can Donate Goods for our shops that would be very much appreciated. Please also check out our Volunteer Opportunities if you are interested in helping us in the shops.
We ask you to only deliver carrier bags and not bin bags as our storage facilities are limited. At all our shops we take:
- Clothing (Adult)
- Curtains, Cushions and Covers
- Good Condition small Furniture
- Kitchen Items & Gadgets
- Large Pictures
- Toys and Puzzles (500 or 1000)
- Jewellery & Watches
- Console Games and Records
- Full Bottles for our very popular bottle stall
- Good Quality Gifts for Raffles etc.
- Working Electricals
- Car Seats
- Cycle Helmets
- Small Picture Frames
- Computer Desks
- TV Stands
At our East Wittering shops we also take larger furniture such as wardrobes and dining tables. If you have larger amounts of donations, please call us so we can arrange to get them stored well.
We ask you to be mindful of the condition of your donation as it is difficult for us to sell items with stains or our broken. It will cost the charity money to get rid of items if they don’t sell.
Something else to donate?
Call your local charity shop to check we can take it.

Give On The Go
If you’re looking for a simple, automatic way to continue supporting the Cat & Rabbit Rescue Centre, you should start your Amazon shopping at smile.amazon.co.uk. You shop as you normally would on the site, at no extra cost to you, and you don’t need to make a separate account.
Through AmazonSmile, Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to a charity of your choice. Just search ‘Cat and Rabbit Rescue Centre’ in the search bar and choose us as your favourite charity. Then we will automatically receive your donation from amazon smile every time you shop.
Amazon wish list is another great way of supporting us. Our Amazon charity wish list includes all the essential items the animals in our care need to keep comfortable and happy while they are with us.
Every week, our animals get through a considerable amount of bedding, food and toys. And an incredible way you can help us today, is by purchasing an item or two from our wish lists… Our animals would really appreciate it.
These are just some of the ways you can give on the go to CRRC. To find out more about other ways you can help, visit our Give on the Go page by clicking below
