The Tameside and Glossop branch of the RSPCA is separate and independent from the parent charity (National RSPCA) and run entirely by unpaid volunteers.
A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR

- SHOPPING FOR CHRISTMAS PRESENTS? USING AMAZON? If you follow this link to the online store the branch will get a little commission on every item you buy with no extra cost to you!
- VOLUNTEER DELIVERY DRIVER WITH OWN TRANSPORT URGENTLY NEEDED – The branch needs a driver with his/her own vehicle who would be able to collect and deliver food, litter and other supplies from wholesalers and other collection points to fosterers and carers and if needed take cats and kittens to veterinary appointments. S/he would ideally be based in the Droylsden, Audenshaw, Hyde or Denton area and be available during the day, for a few hours each week. Mileage and other out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed.
- IF YOU HAVE LOST OR FOUND A PET Pets Located.com is free for those reporting a found animal and anyone wishing to log a lost pet is asked for a fee of £10+VAT to use the service for 12 months, which includes posting details of the lost pet online and on social media and the facility to create your own ‘lost pet’ poster, as well as giving access to the database of found pets. People should continue to check with local services such as dog wardens and vets if their pet becomes lost. The RSPCA also recommends microchipping animals as one of the best ways of being reunited with a pet if it goes missing.

And, to the very generous customers of Asda Hyde and Sainsbury’s Denton and to all those individuals who donate food, cat litter and equipment from our Amazon Wish list to help our animals in care, who are waiting for new families to call their own.
