Donations and Legacies
As a Local RSPCA Branch, we are an independently registered charity run by volunteers and we rely heavily on local fundraising activities and public support to allow us to provide direct animal welfare services in our area.
We take in animals that local RSPCA Inspectors have rescued from harm and abandonment or that had come to us via the Greater Manchester Animal Hospital. We also take in animals directly from the public and other sources.
We arrange welfare vouchers to assist with Veterinary treatment for those who could not afford animal welfare bills for their pets.
During 2018 Altrincham RSPCA took in 423 animals and rehomed 392 animals:
28 dogs, 251 cats, 60 rabbits and 53 others.
On average, we spend over £30,000 each year on Veterinary bills, Kennel fees and food and fostering costs for the animals in our care, with Branch administration and other running costs taking that figure higher.
We are a separate charity from the national RSPCA and our volunteers raise funds locally. Without your help and support we could not continue to carry out local animal welfare work.
Donations and Legacies
If you would be interested in making a one-off or regular donation to the branch please contact our Branch Manager Julia Tucker on 0161 286 2503 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a secure, online JustGiving donation webpage where you can make a one-off or regular donation contribution to our work.
A legacy or bequest would provide crucial funds – we could not carry out our work without such generous support.
If you are considering a legacy to Altrincham RSPCA in your Will , please remember that the Altrincham RSPCA Branch and all the local RSPCA branches are separately registered charities.
So if you would like the animals in your local area to benefit, please ensure that your intended legacy goes to " RSPCA Cheshire (Altrincham) Branch ".
Amazon “Wish Lists”
The Wish Lists allow people to purchase much needed food and rehoming equipment for our animals from amazon.co.uk and have it delivered to us.
In the last two years we have successfully taken in and rehomed well over 400 animals and they get through a staggering amount of food, bedding and toys which takes a big chunk of the money that we are able raise locally.
If you are able to help provide food or equipment in any small way, it will free up money to help pay with Veterinary bills and other costs.
EBay for Charities
We are now registered with Ebay for Charities, which means that EBay sellers can give a chosen percentage of the sale price to Altrincham RSPCA, if they wish to.
