Gift Aid

CottonTails® rabbit and guinea pig rescue is a registered charity 1078850. Our mission is to re-home unwanted rabbits and guinea pigs within suitable new homes. We neuter and vaccinate every single rabbit, and re-home all our animals in pairs. Our overheads are low, but it still costs around £20,000 to care for over 400 unwanted pets we help each year. Your donation will greatly help our work.

Make your gift to Cottontails worth even more
– at no extra cost to you

If you are a UK tax payer, you can make every £1 you give – or have given – worth 25p more, just by telling us. This is because the government’s Gift Aid scheme allows Cottontails to reclaim tax on donations. This means that you can make an even bigger difference at no extra cost to you!  For example, if you donate £20 we are able to receive an extra £5 which makes it £25.

Find out more about Gift Aid

For your donations to be eligible for Gift Aid you must pay an amount of income tax and/ or capital gains tax for each tax year (6 April one year to 5 April the next) that is at least equal to the tax that all charities and CASCs reclaim on your donations in the same tax year. If you pay higher rate tax you can claim further tax relief in your Self Assessment tax return.
