Please help us!

Help make a difference to our rescue stars!

There are thousands of small animal shelters all over the world battling on daily basis to make ends meet to provide both welfare for the animals in their care plus the millions of stray dogs and cats.

Almost all these rescues are reliant on just a few volunteers and the goodwill donations of their immediate family and friends.

Yet when animal lovers go on their travels they often encounter distressing animal cruelty and have no idea who they can turn to or how they could possibly help.

The idea from the founder members of the Starlight Barking Trust, many of them ex-resort reps from the 80s, was to link up tour operator staff, their guests, local schools and shelters to collectively make a difference to the welfare of homeless and distressed animals.

How can you help?


Homeless animals need YOU!

Please sign-up and tell all your friends about the Travel Chest newsletter where our team of travel professionals bring you all the latest deals from our tour operator partners who support our initiative and donate to the PAWS – MODEL RESORT PROJECT – where the random poisonings of stray dogs and cats become relegated to the history books and good practice in animal welfare becomes common-place.

On your next holiday, ask your rep where the nearest shelter is and how you can help. If your holiday rep doesn’t know – don’t worry, please contact us and we will get this info to you. Then please ask your rep to pass this info on to their boss!

Via our website you can virtually adopt a dog and help their shelter by donating.


Homeless animals need YOU!

Many founder members of the Starlight Barking Trust were reps like you helping with the abandoned puppies and kittens back in the 80s. We have many a good rescue story between us!

But we are sad to see that very little has changed since our day and it’s still only a handful of volunteers struggling to make a difference to the animals in their local community.

We know that you will be doing long hours during the season, so getting involved at the shelters will be difficult, but you can help ENORMOUSLY by letting your animal loving guests know about us.

We can give them all the info about your nearest shelter and how they might help them.


Homeless animals need YOU!

Please get your office staff and resort teams behind the PAWS – Model Resort Project, creating model resorts where the poisoning of stray dogs and cats is relegated to the history books.

Please tell your guests how they can find out more via Starlight Barking and donate to the shelter closest to their resort.

Please advertise your special deals on our website and in our newsletter and make a difference to the lives of homeless children and animals. The biggest websites don’t need your advertising revenue to line their shareholders pockets……but orphanages and animal shelters do!

Please support Starlight Barking’s – Travel Chest website – you know it makes sense!!!
