RSPCA York, Harrogate & District Branch

The RSPCA York, Harrogate & District Branch is a local, separately registered charity which works in partnership with the National RSPCA. Our York Animal Home rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes hundreds of animals every year. We are passionate about finding forever homes for our pawsome residents, and rely on the generosity of the general public to fund our vital work.

About us

The RSPCA in York, Harrogate & District is a separately registered charity, although we are supported by and work in partnership with the RSPCA National Society. We are primarily self-funded and the money we spend in York is raised in York, Harrogate and surrounding areas. Income is also generated by our charity shops in Goodramgate, York, Acomb and Selby.

The York Animal Home is licensed to look after dogs, cats and rabbits, as well as many other small furries and birds. Our small wildlife unit houses hedgehogs and feral birds which are released back to the wild when they have been brought back to health. Maintenance of the 9 buildings, staffing costs, supporting our volunteers, veterinary bills and most importantly caring for, rehabilitating and rehoming our animals costs around £1,400 per day. Ensuring that we are efficient and use our hard-earned funds in the most effective way possible is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees and our management team.

If you share our passion for animal welfare and believe every animal deserves a loving home, then we would love it if you would consider supporting our work.

£100 could pay for a pair of rabbits to be spayed/neutered. £200 could help a cat fix their dental problems. £500 could buy fresh vegetables for our rabbits for a full year. £1,000 could remove a lump or tumour, saving an animal's life. £10,000 could contribute towards a new vehicle, supporting the retail work of the Branch (donation transportation and collection). £32,000 could help us support a low-income family with their new pet's vet bills, for the rest of the animal's life. This could mean that a dog with complex health issues will find a home more quickly. £32,000+ could contribute towards improving the current facilities of the York Animal Home, providing more comfortable accommodation for our animal residents and improving their quality of life.
