We receive fewer donated tins of meat for our cats than for the dogs. Our food bill is very high so donations of tinned meat and biscuits for the cats will be much appreciated.
We need rawhide chews. They are great for the dogs, giving them something to do and reducing stress.
We will be grateful to receive donations of hay or straw to use in the small animal accommodation.
We continually need supplies of newspaper and will be glad to receive donations.
Your help is very much appreciated.
We are currently running a campaign to ensure that farmed ducks have full body access to water.
We are working with supermarkets to ensure this.
for more information please see HERE
If you need to arrange a house clearance please ring the Animal Centre and we'll come to collect by appointment. We are glad to receive your unwanted good quality items to sell in our shops such as clothing, accessories, pictures and bric-a-brac. We cannot sell electrical appliances or large furniture.
Goods can be taken to any of the shops (addresses on our RSPCA Shops page) or to the Centre at St Columb.
Our funds have been depleted due to increasing costs and so we are launching a special Golden Oldie donations appeal highlighting the plight of elderly pets that are brought to us for rehoming.
RSPCA Cornwall Branch is a registered charity that only exists through public support.
Owners who have adopted a pet often email the Centre and tell us how things are progressing. It is always encouraging to see animals happily settled and we thought it would be nice to share some with you via the web site.
Hence, we have started a 'success' section, in which owners contribute a few words and pictures telling us how their pet is settling in the new home.
If you feel that you may have something to share, please email the centre with your experiences.
To see the sort of thing we want, see the 'SUCCESS' page here .
