Partnerships and Supporters

The need for funds will never go away: to ensure the charity can continue providing services for both pets and pet owners in our community, we must raise approximately £1.97 million a year.

Can your business change lives?

We want to encourage organisations who like what we deliver as a charity, to consider working in partnership with us or supporting us in some way, download our Partnership Pack to find out more...

We can offer a few things in return for your commitment:

  • Advertising and promotion opportunities in newsletters, other written materials, website, social media and at events
  • Networking opportunities with fellow partners of Oak Tree
  • Workplace talks to explain partnership opportunities to employees
  • A very reasonably priced venue for staff training and development days
