Objectives

SPCA Staffordshire North Branch has been rescuing abused and neglected animals across North Staffordshire since 1963 . We are a separately registered charity (Registered Charity Number: 225670) and as such we are responsible for raising our own funds locally. We do not receive any funding from the Government or Local Authorities.

We currently re- home close to one animal for every day of the year. Our charity costs nearly £200,000 a year to run and therefore support from our local community is critical to the success and longevity of the Branch.

The Branch is run through a committee of volunteer Trustees and we are always looking for new volunteers with professional experience in various fields that would contribute to our work and the development of our Branch.

Sadly, North Staffordshire has very high rates of animal cruelty and therefore, our main charitable objective is to rescue as many of these animals from cruelty, neglect and abandonment as possible and find them the loving care they deserve.

In addition, we are committed to promoting good, responsible pet ownership throughout the Branch area, which covers the whole of North Staffordshire, including Stoke on Trent and the Staffordshire Moorlands. We run numerous free micro chipping events in the community and give talks to school assemblies spreading the word of good animal welfare.

With your help can we effect real change…

Activities

We work closely with the RSPCA Inspectors (employed by the national charity) and take in the animals that they rescue from cruelty and neglect. We then care for and rehabilitate these animals until they are ready to be re-homed. We never put a healthy animal to sleep and never give up trying to find them their new home. We only to re-home animals to homes that we have physically checked are suitable and follow up successful adoptions with post-home visits.

We operate a busy micro chipping service for people on low incomes or means tested benefits. This is provided free of charge and we travel out to communities to make it easier for them to access the service.

In addition, we deliver talks to school assemblies and adult groups to provide education about responsible pet ownership.
