MESSAGE FROM OUR TRUSTEES 05/07/2020
The country is getting back to normality, indeed we opened our Upton-Upon-Severn fundraising shop on Saturday 4th July. This now means all three of our fundraising shops are back up and running.
However our rescue /rehoming centre remains in lockdown, and we shall continue to maintain strict Covid19 precautions at the site. We shall take a review of the situation at the end of July.
This means only staff are allowed on site, once we feel we can safely open up to our volunteer force we shall make contact with you all.
We are tremendously proud of the fact that we have been one of the very few rescue centres who have continued to take in and re-home animals throughout the pandemic period. Indeed no animal in need, that we have been asked to help, has been refused that help. In the month of June, we accepted into care 27 cats and rehomed 15. We have 7 cats under Veterinary care. We accepted 4 rabbits into care. There were also 3 dogs taken into our care in June, with 8 being rehomed during the month. Without a reliable income stream, and at times a reduced staffing level, I think we can be proud of our efforts.
None of this could have been done without the help and backing of our supporters. Many who have found new and inventive ways to help, Jane Fitzgerald of Ginger Cat Crafts, Pauline Whittaker, White House Vets, Olivia and her sister Florence raised £800 by running up and down their road. Just a few, so many of you have raised money to help us through this difficult time and we are very grateful.
We feel the rest of 2020 will be challenging for us, and as neglect and abuse continues, with your continued support the branch will fight to ensure the animals of Worcestershire have the life they deserve.
RSPCA Worcester and Mid-Worcestershire.
Formed in 1911, The Worcester and Mid Worcestershire Branch is a separate charity in its own right.
Covering Worcester, Malvern, Droitwich, Redditch, Bromsgrove, Rubery, Alcester, Henley-in-Arden, Pershore and surrounding districts.
Its main aim is to re-home animals within this area.
Branch Administration is located at:
Holdings Lane, Kempsey. WR5 3FP
Our Branch is an
independent charity relying primarily on public donations.
It is run by a Board of Trustees ensuring all money donated goes
directly for the
benefit of the hundreds of animals that come into our care
each year, many of which have been abandoned, abused,
injured or unwanted, as well as those whose owners have died
or whose circumstances have changed.
If you think you can help with rehoming one of our animals, please take a look at our Animals for Adoption page
Since we opened at the end of 2016, we have continually year on year rehomed; micro chipped and neutered more animals than the previous year.
We look to improve on our figures in 2020. We can only do this with the support of our volunteers and donors.
Thank you very much for being here for the animals.
