Your local RSPCA Branch needs you – PLEASE READ!!!!
“It’s with great sadness that the committee has had to make the decision of suspending the intake of all animals till the end of the year due to high spending on private boarding (we don’t have our own centre) and vet bills. We will re-assess in October. However, we can take in animals from Greater Manchester Animal Hospital only if
Our RSPCA Macclesfield, SE Cheshire & Buxton branch is an entirely volunteer run charity, working under the guidelines and policies of the National RSPCA. It is completely self-funded by donations directly made to our branch by members of the public and funds raised by the fundraising team. We do not have an animal centre, instead our animals reside in either private boarding facilities, or with our dedicated team of fosterers. Therefore every bit of work that is done to help the animals that we save is done by volunteers – dedicated animal lovers who give up their spare time to run the branch from their own homes, on top of their own lives, working full time with families and the same every day to day busy lives as everybody else.
Regardless of your thoughts regarding the National RSPCA (I have seen a fair few negative comments recently), this is YOUR local branch for your local home town covering Macclesfield, Buxton, Wilmslow, Alsager, Sandbach, Poynton, Alderley Edge, Kettleshulme. Without this branch I would not be able to foster….for all of those people saying what an amazing job I am doing with the fostering, this is where you can do your bit – help with donations. Get the kids involved – cake bakes etc, even food donations for our animals currently in foster care/boarding kennels. Every bit helps!
To all those people sat behind a computer making negative comments who don’t know the half of what it takes to run this local branch, it’s so easy to pass judgement but the reality is that these volunteers all want the same thing as you at the end of the day – they want to help save animals in need. Only difference is they are actually doing something about it. So put your money where your mouth is – step up and help save our branch.
We cannot function without money. Please, please help us! We are begging for people to donate via texting. There are also other ways to donate, please go to our website www.rspca-macclesfield.org.uk and to the donate page.
Please share and spread the word, thank you for reading,
