The Tameside and Glossop Branch of the RSPCA, in common with all local branches is separate and independent from the parent charity, i.e. the National RSPCA. The easiest way to understand this structure is to think of it in terms of a Franchise. There are over 160 Branches of the RSPCA and every Branch is slightly different from its neighbours. They operate their own animal welfare programmes, which run “in tandem” with the National Society. Each branch raises its own funds and manages its own affairs. The branch does not employ paid staff and is run entirely by volunteers.
To find our more about our work and finances you can download/view our annual report and accounts for the last 5 years directly from the Charity Commission’s Website here
We raise funds to continue to pay for the private boarding of animals brought in by RSPCA Inspectors which are then re-homed by the Branch. Please visit our cat and dog galleries if you would like to adopt. A home visit is always undertaken by our volunteer home checkers to ensure a good match is made between the animal and its potential adopter.
Branch volunteers also work hard raising funds to support our assisted neutering and treatment schemes which enable people on low incomes to meet expensive veterinary bills.
