12 February 2019. Amazon Doncaster have made a donation to the RSPCA Doncaster, Rotherham and District branch. From the left are, Lesley Wharton, Hollie Benton, Gill Fedorov (Amazon), Daniel Cartwright, Emma Bramham (Amazon) and Laura Bullock.

The RSPCA Doncaster, Rotherham and District Branch is made up of a highly dedicated team that works tirelessly to ensure the protection and safety of animals.

The South Yorkshire Animal Centre endeavours to improve animal treatment and reaches out to members of the community to encourage responsible pet ownership. In 2018, the Animal Centre re-homed over 830 domestic animals and cared for over 340 wild animals.

The donation will go towards a socialisation unit for cats rescued from abusive households.

Site Leader at Amazon Doncaster Balby Carr Bank, Ajit Sah, said: “We are pleased to be able to provide this donation and hope it helps the RSPCA continue its fantastic work. As an animal lover myself, it’s heart-breaking to hear stories of animal cruelty but I am glad there are organisations such as the RSPCA who are committed to lending a helping hand.”

Our team works hard to rehabilitate and care for as many animals as possible and find them a loving forever-home where they are safe from harm and able to live happy lives. This donation will help us to continue with our mission.”

The donation forms part of the “Amazon In The Community” programme whereby the company supports the communities around its operating locations across the UK.
