Our 2015 branch calendar is now available to order. The calendar features some of the cats & dogs adopted from our branch over the past year. Thanks to everyone who sent in a picture to us, it was great to see them all but as we had so many it wasn't possible to use them all - we did use as many as we could. You can collect & pay for a calendar at all the upcoming branch events including the 'pop up charity shop' in Barnoldswick next month. In addition you can also collect & pay from Ashlands vets at Glusburn, Ilkley or Skipton. The collection price is £4 per copy. We can also take orders to post out to you if you prefer, a postal copy will cost £5.52 and you can order online using PayPal or via credit/debit card. You can order your copy here
A big thank you to Mike & Else, two volunteers who have spent a lot of time up at the branch kennels and tidied out the stable area for us - as you can see from the picture it's looking great! The stable area can be used by our volunteer dog walkers or potential adopters and is a great area to spend some time with the animals if the weather is not too kind. We have seating and toys available for you to play with the branch cats & dogs - If you are a dog walker or maybe you are visiting our animals at the kennels please feel free to make use of the stable.
We have just received a cheque from the recent fundraising raffle organized by support adoption for pets. Raffle tickets were sold instore at the Keighley branch of pets @ home and the proceeds have been divided between our branch and Keighley Cat Care. The total we have received is just over £944! Thanks to all the store staff & management for their hard work selling the tickets and of course a big thanks to everyone who purchased a ticket. All the money raised will be used to help care for local vulnerable animals at our branch. Jayne is pictured accepting the cheque with our new dog 'hope'. Our branch volunteers also held a fabric and yarn fundraising event at the Rainhall centre in Barnoldswick which raised over £118! Thanks to all the volunteers involved and to everyone who donated items for the event. Your support is very much appreciated.
Our next 'pop up' charity shop will be open in Barnoldswick from Monday 1st December until Saturday 6th December. Can you help us run the shop? Everything from re-stocking the shelves to serving customers. We will also need help to set the shop up on Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th November mid afternoon to early evening. If you can help at all please send us an email and we will contact you with further information. If you have any good quality donations such as clothes, shoes etc we can arrange a collection. Please support us if you can. We also need some help ironing the clothes for the shop, if you can help with this please let us know.
Our branch is self funding which means we have to raise our funds within the local area, we rely on donations from businesses and the public. All the money we raise is used to care for local vulnerable animals in our branch care. If you would like to make a donation directly to our branch you can find out how here
Our branch receives many calls relating to sick & injured animals, cases of cruelty and neglect and stray animals. Local RSPCA branches do not have the resources to deal with these cases - you can find out further information and how to report your case to the main RSPCA here
