Hull & East Riding Branch
“People believe that because we are part of the RSPCA, we have access to a great deal of funding but in reality, we only receive a small amount of money from the national pot.”
COVID-19 EMERGENCY APPEAL
“Our running costs are around £500k annually which means we rely on our own fundraising and donations from people in the Hull and East Riding area.
As a result of the Coronavirus epidemic and this further lockdown , the RSPCA Hull and East Riding Branch has seen almost all of its income stop and put a halt to the final big push of the re-build which we've worked so hard to achieve. There are very few grants available for animal charities and as such we rely heavily on self generated income and fundraising. All of our spring events are now cancelled, our three charity shops are closed, people cannot leave their homes to donate and we can no longer continue rehoming.
When we are fully operational, our Clough Road Rescue Centre costs around £30,000 a month to run. With virtually all our animals needing some form of vet treatment, those bills alone can come in at £5K a month! Due to the rebuild and challenges of last year we now have limited reserves and if the lockdown continues we will be at very real risk of not being able to relaunch this year, after all the goodwill and efforts of our wonderful supporters.
We know it's a huge ask at a time of financial uncertainty for so many of you, but we will need more support if we are to survive this crisis.
Please donate to this new campaign if you can. Share it with your friends; talk to your employers about how they may be able to help; run your own online fundraising campaign and link it directly to this campaign. Whatever you can do, we cannot thank you enough!
Thank you from all the Clough Road team.
“We care for rabbits, ferrets, dogs and cats which have often been abandoned, abused or neglected, helping them to recover and find new forever homes and they need us to be here for them.”
Message from Lavender
I was lucky to be found after wandering the streets of Hull, all alone and feeling very poorly in November 2020. I’m now in a fantastic pen at the RSPCA Hull, apparently, I’m the very first Bunny to take up residence here as its only just opened but I certainly won’t be the last! I now have lots of space to hop, skip and jump around, although when I first arrived this was not the case as I had to visit the V.E.T omg.
We have been operational on our current site since 1938 helping those animals most in need of our specialist help. Our priority is to take in animals that have suffered cruelty, neglect or abandonment and have been rescued by RSPCA Inspectors. Our expert team at the animal rescue centre work to rehabilitate these animals to fully recover both mentally and physically. They are neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and wormed ready for rehoming.
To carry out our work it costs approx. £1350 per day to operate, we receive no funding from government or from any Lottery funds. RSPCA branches are affiliated to the National Society however they are independently responsible for generating their own income with limited assistance from the National Society. Therefore to continue to operate we are dependent upon; legacies, donations, fundraising activities, charity shop income, grants and corporate sponsorship.
