Adult cat and/or dog fosterers – urgently needed

Posted in Special Appeals | Comments Off

The branch urgently needs dedicated animal carers who would be prepared to foster adult cats or dogs who are recovering from illness, who have been injured accidentally or by their previous owners or who are simply waiting to find that very special family to call their own.

This will not involve any personal expense but could involve some sleepless nights. All out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed, all bedding, food, medication and associated veterinary expenses will be met by the branch.

For more information and to receive a leaflet about this important aspect of our work please email the branch.

Or simply download them – Fostering Information and Volunteer Application Form


Donate much needed food and equipment

Posted in Branch News and Updates, Special Appeals | Comments Off

As the branch often fosters puppies, kittens and cats and dog with extra TLC needs we gratefully accept donated food and other much needed items directly to the branch.  This is a great alternative to cash donations for those who prefer to give to the branch in this way.  We are in need of the following:

  • Cat litter
  • Kitten and adult cat food
  • Puppy and adult dog food
  • Dog coats
  • Dog leads
  • Toys and various other comforts

Your gifts will benefit RSPCA animals who have suffered at the hands of their previous owners and are being rehabilitated by our volunteer dog walkers and cat socialisers.

Food, beds and cat litter etc will help to feed and provide warmth and comfort to those who are too young or sick to be rehomed from the cattery or kennels and are being cared for by fosterers in their own homes.

Our Amazon Wish List

We have an Amazon wish list containing all the items we (ideally) need which can be viewed here: www.amazon.co.uk – Wish List.

All you need to do is click ‘add to basket’ next to the item you would like to buy for us and then checkout in the usual way. All items will be delivered directly to us.

If you can’t donate, please share using the buttons below. Thank you :)

Get Puppy Smart

Posted in Branch News and Updates, Special Appeals | Comments Off

Did you know that one fifth of people who bought a puppy in the past two years no longer have their dog?* It’s a really sad fact and ends up with more dogs needing rehoming.

Dogs can live for around 15 years or more so owning one is a big and long term commitment. Time spent now researching the right puppy for you will really make all the difference.
