Managed by committee on an entirely voluntary basis
Do you have more free time now you're working from home or retired?
We urgently need experienced cat people to volunteer to foster our lovely adult felines until we find them a home, especially with room for one of our outdoor pens and on a long term basis.
Watch our video below to see what's involved.
Might this be for you?
Barnsley & District
Registered Charity 226116
We are a team of volunteer trustees with a network of fantastic volunteer fosterers, who care for rescued and abandoned animals in their own homes and then pair and re-home them into suitable new homes with new pet-parents.
Our RSPCA branch is a separately registered charity, primarily responsible for raising our own funds locally.
In short, we are affiliated to the national RSPCA Society, but not funded by them.
We never put a healthy animal to sleep except on the considered advice of vets.
This map shows all the areas covered by Barnsley & District Branch (in pink).
Our area works on a postcode system. It applies to things like whether you may be eligible for free microchipping at events, or reduced cost neutering.
As all branches are independent charities, we don't want to step on the toes of others, so if you're not in the pink area, here are some other useful local branch numbers to try.
Remember: If you are concerned about the welfare of an animal (i.e. abuse or neglect) always ring 0300 1234 999.
Branches are not able to deal with abuse or neglect cases:
Doncaster, Rotherham & District:
Leeds, Wakefield & District:
It goes without saying (or does it?) that we'd like to say a huge thank you to everyone who volunteers tirelessly for hours, around the clock to keep our Branch operating, through sad and exhausting times and fun times alike- and often alongside their normal work in order to pay bills.
It's hard work, but the rewards are so worth it.
We'd also like to say a big thank you to everyone who donates food, litter, blankets,toys, puts cash in our tins, offers cheques and leaves us legacies, we cannot survive without you.
Many thanks too to our colleagues at Chesterfield Branch who help us enormously, caring for our Barnsley dogs and rabbits and preparing them for adoption - and to our Charity shop Staff.
..and to Tesco (Stairfoot & Penistone), Morrisons (Barnsley), Pets At Home and Cookes Pet Store for housing our Donation Boxes.
Finally, to the special people below who regularly help or donate without whom we would be lost:
The Toone Family, Mr & Mrs Horsley, Thurgoland Junior School Kitchen Staff, Julie Kitchen Childminders, Mrs Catherine Liddemore, Mr Richardson, Sue and Emma, Dawn Hewitt .
