Leeds, Wakefield & District Branch
Our branch is a separately registered charity to the national RSPCA. As we are completely self-funded with no government help, we rely heavily on the generosity of our local community to help keep our Animal Centre Open.
The RSPCA Leeds, Wakefield and District Branch provides a safe haven in which abused, neglected, and abandoned animals can be cared for, socialised and rehabilitated before they are found a new home.
The branch can provide accommodation for 15 dogs, 30 cats and 8 rabbits at any one time.
Last year it cost nearly £888,000 to run our branch where we rehabilitated and rehomed 336 animals who may have previously been neglected. This equates to needing nearly £2500 each day to keep doing what we are doing for our animals. All animals that come into our Animal Centre are health checked, flea/wormed regularly, treated for sickness or injury if necessary, vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered/spayed.
Our Charity Shop and Fundraising Event income helps to cover this cost but this can be very difficult at times and we need the support of our local community to help keep our animal centre open.
£ spent helping animal owners
Last year, our branch also spent £14,458 helping animal owners in the local community to secure veterinary welfare assistance for those unfortunate pets who were sick or injured.
We supported animal owners in the local community and contributed towards the cost to microchip 327 animals and neuter 544 owned pets through our very successful chip and snip scheme.
