What We Do
Once an animal is brought into our care, our highly trained staff and volunteers work tirelessly to prepare them for re-homing; each animal undergoes a health check and behavioural assessment, then follows a training and/or rehabilitation plan to get them ready for their new loving homes.
All the animals in our care – past and present – are very important to us and we’re proud to offer on-going guidance and practical advice to both new and existing pet owners who adopt from us.
We’re committed to doing all we can for the animals in our care and never put a healthy animal to sleep. We only euthanize on vet advice for health or aggression reasons. As a proactive local charity, we also operate unique schemes that benefit both adopter and pets, including the EARS (Elderly Animals Re-homing Scheme). This was created for animals over 10 years old that suddenly find themselves without their beloved owner for a multitude of reasons. They are often immensely traumatised so we will place them in a foster home until a new home can be found. The EARS also offers great benefits and reduced care costs to encourage adopting an older animal.
OUR MAIN OBJECTIVES:
– To continue to rehabilitate and rehome as many local animals in need as we can (in the region of 500-600 per year). We’re proud to be one of the only local RSPCA centre’s with a highly qualified dog trainer and behaviourist on site, working with our canine residents.
– Continue to raise our own funds within our local area to maintain our Animal Welfare work and support the running costs of our Charity & Animal Centre.
– To continue our welfare assistance and education work within our district area.
– To never put a healthy animal to sleep and provide the necessary health care and attention for every animal that arrives through our doors.
– To maintain and hopefully expand our work for animals in our care and animals in need within Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & our surrounding district areas.
