Despite being a slightly older gent, his age does not slow him down; he loves a good run around and a quick ear scratch.

“When one of our animals become available for adoption, they are posted on our website

(https://www.rspcadoncasterrotherham.org.uk/animals-for-adoption) and Facebook page. If you are interested in adopting an animal, please follow the process that is explained on

our website.”

There are many ways to help the RSPCA branch with their mission to rehome and rehabilitate animals including volunteering, donating cash or goods, leaving a legacy sponsoring them through their Safe Haven programme and attending events.

They have charity shops at Bawtry, Maltby, Rossington and Thorne as well as an eBay and Depop. At the animal centre, they rehome the animals in their care and have a

pet supplies store on site and online. They also provide a pet cremation service and memorial garden. To donate £5, text
