RSPCA Doncaster & Rotherham Branch

by | 8 August 2022 | Local Charity, Pets, Rotherham

At the RSPCA Doncaster and Rotherham Branch staff care for over 1,000 animals each year, ranging from dogs, cats, puppies and kittens to birds, wildlife and rabbits. They aim to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome every animal that comes into their care, although some animals are in care longer than others.

These are some of the long-term residents, all of whom are ready and waiting for their forever families.

Casper is their current longest-stay rabbit resident. He has been in their care for seven months now, after being found as a stray with suspected fight wounds. He is now ready to find his forever home and has been waiting patiently for the right family to come along. Could you be the right person for Casper?

Their longest-stay feline residents are Desmond and Reginald; this playful pair are on the lookout for their new home together. Desmond is sweet-natured but is a little timid at times. However, his confident pal Reginald brings him out of his shell, and they conquer the world together. The pair can live with children aged five and over and with other cats. They may also be able to live with cat-friendly dogs if introduced slowly.

Trixie is their current longest-stay canine. She is looking for an adult-only family with no other pets who can give her all the time she needs to form a bond with them and someone who understands her. Trixie enjoys all the attention for herself and enjoys going on 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 ( 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.
