Prince turns on the charm

8th July 2019
RSPCA Doncaster and Rotherham

Prince is one of the long stay rescue dogs at the RSPCA South Yorkshire Animal Centre. He is a handsome boy, full of energy and life when outside, who loves running around the paddock with his favourite toy — he is also partial to a good snooze in his kennel. Prince has been at the centre for many months and his successful re-homing into a loving home is a priority.

Caring for animals like Prince, who are in the Animal Centre through no fault of their own, requires considerable funding. With rehabilitation high on the list of priorities for the branch, time and resources are central to achieving their aim and these need funding.

One way in which RSPCA Doncaster, Rotherham and District Branch achieves this is through events that offer supporters a chance to enjoy quality time with friends and family and raise funds to support vital welfare work with animals such as Prince.

2019 has already seen some fantastic events: the Easter Egg Puzzle Hunt was hugely successful and drew in over twice the number of people than it did last year; Big Walkies around the beautiful Thrybergh was a great event, giving folk time to share their love of dogs and dog walking and the Pea ‘n’ Pie Supper and Pub Quiz was a sell-out success, which raised vital funds. All of the money raised is used to support the animal welfare work at the RSPCA South Yorkshire Animal Centre and so far this year over 330 dogs, cats, rabbits and small animals have been successfully rehabilitated and re-homed.

With even more exciting events coming soon, such as the annual Fun Dog Show, Zip Line Challenge and Glitter Disco, the branch will be able to support even more animals like Prince, who depend on them for that second chance. So please join them at their events.
