Over 1,000 animals given second chance

RSPCA Doncaster and Rotherham

2019 was another great year for RSPCA Doncaster, Rotherham and District Branch with over 1,000 pets re-homed or wildlife rescued and released. The local animal charity continues to deliver against a vision to live in a world where all animals are respected and treated with compassion. In short, all animals should be valued and loved.

The local RSPCA branch provides excellent care at its South Yorkshire Animal Centre, establishing a successful rehoming process, and promoting responsible pet ownership, and working to encourage a more positive, respectful and compassionate attitude towards all animals amongst the general public.

The charitable work is made possible by the fundraising efforts of the community. RSPCA Doncaster, Rotherham and District Branch needs to raise 95% of its own funds and receives no government or lottery funding. Fundraising events coming up in 2020 include the annual Easter egg hunt and fun dog show. Keep up to date at www.rspcadoncasterrotherham.org.uk.

Other services include microchipping, dog training, secure exercise areas and financial assistance for the welfare and neutering of pets. The branch provides a pet cremation service and a memorial garden for your beloved pet.
There are many ways to help your local RSPCA, including volunteering, donating cash or goods, sponsoring the Safe Haven programme and attending events. There are charity shops at Bawtry, Maltby, Rossington and Thorne as well as an eBay shop. At the Animal Centre there is a pet supplies store. To donate £5.00, text ‘RSPCADRB’ to 70085.
