Volunteering can be a really satisfying pastime, knowing that whatever you do, that little bit is helping animals - plus you're meeting like minded people with the same passion.
If you have a couple of hours to give, you could help in one of our shops or collect money by standing at one of our selected shops sometimes- or if you prefer to take care of animals, you could foster cats for us.
We also need home checkers to make sure our pets are adopted to the best homes, or you may be interested in helping make the important decisions and become a Trustee.
If you would like more information on how to get involved, please email us .
Barnsley Branch relies on public generosity to enable us to care for animals.
Your money really does make a difference:
£4 buys 1 microchip for a cat or dog, ensuring they can be quickly reunited with their owner if they go missing.
£5 will pay to keep an abandoned or unwanted cat warm, fed and cared for a day.
£8 will keep an unwanted or abandoned dog warm fed and exercised for a day.
£30 will neuter 1 cat, ensuring the population of unwanted animals is kept under control.
Please donate whatever you can using the donate button at the top of this page.
You can make a cash donation by cheque or postal order to:
RSPCA Barnsley & District
PO Box 783
Remember, item donations for our charity shops are always very welcome too!
Leaving a legacy in your will to the RSPCA Barnsley & District branch allows you to carry on caring for Barnsley’s animals long after you die - your kind gift will help us continue the fight against animal cruelty in the area and save many animals in need.
All legacy income is important to us. Even if your personal circumstances allow you to leave just a few pounds, you will help to save lives and offer a worthwhile future to abused and neglected cats, dogs and other small animals.
Please note that each branch of the RSPCA is an independently registered charity, and if you wish to leave money specifically to the Barnsley & District branch, you must specifically name it when making your will.

PLEASE NOTE THIS POST IS NOW CLOSED
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we have had to suspend further action on securing this position until further notice.
We did complete the time frame given, and all candidates who applied within that period, who also reached our shortlist, have now been contacted. Interviews will commence as soon as we are all safely able, and once we have contacted everyone to give reasonable notice.
Please note we are no longer accepting application forms.
As a very busy, volunteer run charity, we regret that we cannot reply to each individual, so if you have not been contacted already, please assume on this occasion you were not successful.
Thank you to everyone who has expressed an interest in this position, and in our Branch.
We love the experience of searching through items and finding great bargains!
Our first shop opened in Barnsley town centre in 2015, and later, a second on Wombwell High Street.
Our dedicated team of staff will always help you find what you're looking for.
Do you have some items you would like to donate to raise some money to help local animals? You can drop donations at either shop during opening hours:
Our Wombwell shop has a loading bay where you can park your car whilst you deliver your donations. If you have a lot of these, please call first so that someone can be free to help.
Town: Market Street is pedestrianised and unfortunately loading is now restricted outside of our opening times. If you are able to park and walk with some of your donations, thank you, that's great - we will hold occasional Donation Stations there as well at a time when cars can also access.
We always need volunteers to help out in our shops. If you think you would like to do this, please fill in our online application form here.
