Supporting Your Local RSPCA Branch
Whether you want to give a donation or be a bit more hands on we're truly grateful. We simply cannot continue the work we do without the help and support from people like you so please take a look around to see how you can help us make a difference to animals’ lives.
The animals we rescue arrive with us for various reasons, often through no fault of their own. Their owners may have found themselves unable to care for them due to changes in their financial or living arrangements. Whatever the reason our animals all have one thing in common, they need a loving home. So if you are considering adopting and live within a 30-mile radius of Basingstoke and Andover take a look at how you can adopt.
Fostering can be a highly rewarding experience which also enables us to provide our animals with a temporary loving home whilst we find them their new owner. We need foster homes for all sorts of reasons and lengths of time, for example, animals recovering from much needed veterinary care like Winnie and Freddie. Depending on your living situation, as not all are suitable for fostering certain types of animals, anyone can apply so why not send us an email or give us a call if you think you may be able to help. If you can't commit to rehoming an animal on a permanent basis then fostering could be ideal.
Unfortunately, our current shop has had to close it's doors for the final time. To find out more and to see how you can help, continue reading here... Whether you shop in our local Charity Shop or via eBay you're helping to support our work. So if you need a new dog bed or outfit you know that the purchase you make will help benefit animal welfare in your local area. There are also huge environmental benefits to shopping with us enabling you to contribute to the 339,000 tonnes of textiles kept out of landfill as a result of charity retail in the UK. By shopping with us you will give back so visit us soon.
Become a member of the RSPCA to receive our Animal Life magazine, Annual Review and invites to our Annual General Meetings (AGMs). Your membership will help our campaigns for animal rights and welfare.
We advise you to consider your pets in your Will. If you have not identified a relative or friend who will be willing to care for your pets after you die, the RSPCA offer a free service to find a loving home for your pets. We see too many pets who's owners have died and they have been left to fend for themselves like Barney. To ensure that the Basingstoke and Andover RSPCA know that you have expressed this wish and can act, we suggest you include a statement such as the following in your Will:
"It is my wish that the ownership of any animals I have in my care at the time of my death is passed to the RSPCA Basingstoke and Andover branch - Registered charity no. 258321"
