Introducing Your Local RSPCA Branch

Greetings everyone and welcome to the first newsletter from your local branch of the RSPCA.

Few people realise there is a network of branches operating across England and Wales each as a separate registered charity relying on public donations and fundraising revenues. Our branch does not have a rehoming centre so we rely on boarding rescued animals – often with a neighbouring RSPCA rehoming centre such as Worcester or with a member of the Fostering team.

The primary aims of the branch are: Rescue, Rehabilitate, Rehome, with animal welfare a top priority at all times.

The companionship of our pets has played a crucial part in helping our wellbeing during the pandemic. Having one or more pets to care for is a positive distraction when our mood is low, yet animals can perform the funniest playful things that make us smile and lift our spirits again. Many families are enjoying pets for the first time which has helped rescue centres to rehome but sadly has also helped rogue breeders and even pet thieves. Please take extra care when searching for a new pet, research extensively before purchasing an animal, particularly online.

The kitten season approaches which impacts on our local rescue strategy. Foster carers make a huge difference to the branch and we would love to hear from anyone interested in volunteering to foster at home or with any other of our activities such as fundraising, attending events, etc.

Well, that’s all for now. Next time will feature the benefits of neutering and micro chipping which often helps us to reunite a beloved pet with it’s owner.

Enjoy springtime.
