Over 1,000 animals helped by RSPCA Doncaster and Rotherham
It was a busy year for the team at the RSPCA Doncaster, Rotherham and District Branch who worked tirelessly for over 22,000 hours spread across 365 days in 2021.
This effort was backed up by the income generation squad who worked tirelessly to run events, work with supporters and help out in the retail shops and with online sales.
A spokesman for the branch said: “Whether it be a bank holiday, Easter or Christmas, animal care continues every day of the year and we are so grateful to have such amazing supporters who enable us to continue our work rehabilitating and rehoming animals.
“In 2021, we cared for over 1,000 animals from dogs, cats and rabbits to degus, canaries and racing pigeons.
“We are looking forward to 2022 – another year of caring for the hundreds of animals that will enter our care through various circumstances – and we hope that you can continue to
support the work we do, whether it be through social media interactions, donations, or attending our events.
“Unsurprisingly, it’s never long before kittens and puppies get adopted. However, some of our older residents continue to be overlooked despite having just as much love to give.
"Take Angel and Roxy, and Lola for example. These dogs have all spent over three months in our care with no luck yet of finding their forever homes.
"After not having the best start in life, they don’t deserve to spend the rest of their lives in a kennel.
"They want to go out exploring before cuddling up on the sofa beside their favourite humans.
“Angel and Roxy have always had one another so ideally we would like them to be rehomed together, but we would consider rehoming them separately or with another dog pending a successful introduction.
"Despite being older dogs, they still love their walks but would like to find a sofa that they can relax on afterwards.
"They are such sweethearts and are guaranteed to repay you with lots of love if you were to give them the forever home that they deserve.
“Lola is a lurcher who too loves going on walks and exploring new things.
"Although she likes to run around our centre paddock and compound, she would prefer to find a forever home of her own with a secure garden, and a family who can give her the attention she deserves.
“In return, she has such a loving nature which she is sure to share with you.”
