All money raised by the RSPCA goes towards rehoming lost, abused and unwanted pets in our care.
In the last year alone, we've managed to re-home 161 animals in need, including dogs, cats, parrots, guinea pigs, rabbits and terrapins!
You can help us by donating money below, donating unwanted items to our charity shop in Whitehaven, or giving your time by becoming a volunteer. Or, you could always adopt a pet!
By donating just £2 per month, you can do your part to help prevent cruelty to animals everywhere.
On 4th July 2019, Rocco, a German Shepherd in our care, was put to sleep after a cancer mass was discovered in his stomach.
Rocco was rescued from a neglectful life along with three other dogs. His owner, who was jailed for the act, starved him to the point that he was unable to stand under his own weight from muscle loss. When our Inspector rescued him, he was considerably underweight. Although he was adopted once by a family, he was soon returned to us due to his nature (he had never fully recovered from being starved) and lived the rest of his life in the kennels.
Rocco was a lovely boy with a great personality, always happily greeting anyone he met. Unfortunately, due to his age, we had difficulty finding anyone willing to adopt him and give him the forever home he deserved. When he passed away at the age of 10, he was still living in the kennels, having never experienced a life with a true loving family.
He will be sorely missed by all of the Branch volunteers, kennel staff and especially by our Inspector who found him and his canine group. RIP.
Don't let a rescued pet live out its life in a kennel. Rehome an animal now!
