Coventry and District Branch
CORONA VIRUS - A PLEA TO HELP THE ANIMALS ON LOCKDOWN
The Trustees, staff and animals at the RSPCA Coventry and District Branch are putting out a plea to the communities that they support to think about how they can help support the animals in lockdown at the Centre on Coundon Wedge Drive. Are you missing your beauty treatments, your visits to the gym, or meals at your favourite restaurant? Michelle Canciani, Volunteer for the Centre, has recently donated £70 which during this month, she would normally be spending on beauty treatments for her hair and nails. Michelle said “With the impact of Coronavirus having such a detrimental effect on the Centre’s income of donations and whilst we are unable to be going out socially and spoiling ourselves at a Hair Salon, the Gym or a restaurant, we can think about how we can support our local animal charity through this difficult period and make a donation to the Centre, of what we would normally be spending on ourselves in a month. Under normal circumstances, the cats and dogs at the Centre would either be in foster care or on their way to a new home, but just like we are, they are on complete lockdown, reliant on the dedicated staff who are currently caring for the cats and dogs, attending to their needs of medication, food, exercise and socialisation.”
We are reliant for our income on our four shops and local fundraising, but with the shops closed and all fundraising events being suspended we are now on a countdown to how long our reserves can keep us operational.
If you can offer any support to help us to continue our vital work through this difficult time, you can make a donation:
Text RSPCACOVENTRY 5 to 70085 to donate £5
Text RSPCACOVENTRY 10 to 70085 to donate £10
Text RSPCACOVENTRY 20 to 70085 to donate £20
Texts cost £5, £10 or £20 plus one standard rate message
(Please be aware that unfortunately, some networks impose stricter limitations on texts to ‘premium rate’ numbers than larger networks. However, if you do receive a ‘donation fail’ message, you will be given the opportunity to make a donation by a payment card of your choice.)

The Coventry and District Branch is one of around 150 branches that support the local work of the RSPCA inspectorate.
Please visit our branch website for more information.
As a separately registered branch of the RSPCA we are responsible for raising funds locally to help animals in our area.
Our purpose in line with the National RSPCA is to end cruelty and promote kindness to animals and to alleviate suffering, with a particular focus on those animals in need within our area. We are responsive to the operational needs of the Inspectorate within the Branch area and support them in helping the animals most in need. We also strive to support the pet owning community of the Branch through a variety of means. In order to sustain financial security and to enable the branch to continue successfully into the future we need to raise around £400,000 per year through fundraising events, donations and legacies.
