Geographical remit: 


The RSPCA in York, Harrogate and District is a separately registered charity although we are supported by and work in partnership with the RSPCA National Society.

There is always a waiting list of animals that have been abandoned or neglected waiting for a rescue place.


We are primarily self-funding and the money we spend in York is raised in the York and surrounding areas. Income is also generated by our charity shops in Goodramgate, York and Selby.

The York Animal Home is licensed to look after 54 dogs, 54 cats (increasing to 72 during kitten season) and 19 rabbits, as well as many small furries and birds. Our small wildlife unit houses hedgehogs and feral birds which are released back to the wild when they have been brought back to health. Maintenance of the 9 buildings, staffing costs, supporting our volunteers, veterinary bills and most importantly caring for, rehabilitating and re-homing our animals costs around £1400 per day. Ensuring that we are efficient and use our hard-earned funds in the most effective way possible is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees and our management team.

We have a successful re-homing centre and are proud that we re-home a large number of animals but we are always looking for more homes. The more animals we re-home the more animals we can help.
