BARKS

Corporate sponsors & partners

The very best magic is made when we work together - and that’s why we’re so grateful for the support of our partners who work with us to provide financial help, animal care expertise and additional space and love.

Rescue partners

In 2018, we merged with Tiny Paws of Bicester, taking on their animals. We partner with Middleton Cheney's Nutkin Ward wildlife rescue operation and Rushden Persian Rescue, as well as co-operating with Cats Protection in Rugby.

Veterinary partners

West Bar Vets and Vets4Pets are two amazing veterinary practices in Banbury who provide us with much-needed support and advice as well as significant discounts.

“For many years we've worked with the dedicated volunteers at BARKS. The team give of their time and resources to care for needy animals, treating the sick, finding good homes for as many pets as possible and encouraging responsible pet ownership. Their efforts are to be commended.”

Richard Byrne (MRCVS)
Partner at West Bar Vets

“BARKS provides all the care that unwanted, abandoned or stray cats, dogs, rodents and rabbits need without hesitation or question. This all comes from a lot of personal time and expense from its caring volunteers and supporters, without whom the charity would not survive.”

Richard Knight (MRCVS)
Clinical Director and Partner at Vets4Pets Banbury

Corporate sponsors

For the first time in our 40-year history, in 2019 BARKS began developing partnerships with regional businesses, in and around Banburyshire.  It’s early days - but we’re moving fast and can offer a range of sponsorship packages and benefits. We offer two tiers of corporate partnership - Gold and Silver – and we're open to ideas on how we can best tailor our sponsorship opportunities to meet each sponsor’s needs.

In summer 2019, Banbury’s Mountain Warehouse store ran a very successful tote bag campaign with proceeds donated to BARKS.

As a store of animal lovers, it was natural to pick BARKS as our charity, especially as two of us have re-homed cats from BARKS ourselves."
