On Sunday 4th September, RSPCA Doncaster and Rotherham Branch held a Fun Dog Show. It was a great turnout; staff hope everyone had as much fun as they did! They want to say a massive thank you to all supporters for going along; whether you entered a dog class, bought a raffle ticket or made a donation, staff are so grateful for the ongoing support from our local community.
It was lovely to watch all the talented dogs strutting their stuff in the show ring. Staff would also like to thank all the sponsors for helping to make the day a success.
The Branch is pleased to announce the event raised over £2,100. This will contribute towards the running of the centre and has a direct impact on the welfare of the animals in care.
These are some of the long-term residents, all of whom are ready and waiting for their forever families.
Martina is a beautiful rabbit, on the search for her very own hutch to call home. She generally prefers to stay indoors but does like to explore out and about occasionally. She is shy, so would benefit from a confident neutered male partner to bring her out of her shell.
The longest-stay feline residents are Elijah and Erica, a bonded pair who are very affectionate. Since being in care, they have started to show more of their personalities. They are looking for a home where they can grow old together. Elijah and Erica would be best suited to a family no other pets and children over the age of 10.
Stan is also looking for a home of his own. Stan is a lovely older gentleman of nine years who entered care after he was found straying with a poorly mouth, matted fur, was underweight and had diarrhoea and sickness. He has since taken some long naps and been treated by the vet, though he requires ongoing care, which the Branch will help with. Stan is a mature cat who loves the company of people and watching the world go by whilst having a cuddle. Stan can live with other cats and older children.
Trixie is a tremendous dog and is looking for a forever adult-only home with no other pets where she can have a happy and full life. Trixie is looking for a person or family who can give her plenty of attention and quiet walks. She would benefit from several meet and greets before adoption day.
Whether you are on the lookout for a dynamic duo or a sole companion, there is a wide variety of animals currently available for adoption – from dogs and cats to rabbits and guinea pigs.
When an animal becomes available for adoption, it is posted on the Branch website (www.rspcadoncasterrotherham.org.uk/animals-for-adoption) and Facebook page. If you are interested in adopting an animal, please follow the process on the website.
There are many ways to help RSPCA Doncaster, Rotherham and District Branch with their mission to rehome and rehabilitate animals, including volunteering, donating cash or goods, leaving a legacy, sponsoring through the Safe Haven programme and attending events. There are charity shops at Bawtry, Maltby, Rossington and Thorne as well as eBay and Depop stores. At the Animal Centre, they rehabilitate and rehome the animals and have a pet supplies store on site for all your requirements. There is also a pet cremation service and a memorial garden for your beloved pets. To donate £5.00, text ‘RSPCADRB’ to 70085.
