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 from Doncaster’s Amazon centre 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.”

Mary McSherry from the RSPCA, added: “We would like to thank Amazon for its kind donation. 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 a programme where the company supports the communities around its operating locations across the UK.
