How you can support us
RSPCA Cornwall Branch does not employ any company to raise funds on its behalf neither does the Branch arrange house to house or street cash collections. However, here are some other ways you can help us:
Help with fund-raising. (see examples below).
Give a Car
Giveacar is a not-for-profit social enterprise that can turn your old car into cash for any UK charity. They arrange free collection then either sell your car at auction or scrap it with the proceeds raised going to your charity.Giveacar is a not-for-profit social enterprise that can turn your old car into cash for any UK charity.

The UK's first car donation scheme, Giveacar has won awards and has now supported over 1,000 charities with the money raised from old cars. Using a nationwide network of breakers yards and salvage partners, they have handled the auction and disposal of over 8,000 vehicles so they know how to raise the best donation possible whether your car is in perfect condition or not. If you need to get rid of an old car and would like to support your local RSPCA at the same time, give them a call on 0207 736 4242 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org

Nic's Head Shave
A few months ago, an RSPCA Inspector brought a dozen cats from an unsuitable environment to the Centre. The cats had not been well looked after and had eye and dental problems which had to be put right before they could be rehomed.
Popeye had a troublesome ear infection due to polyps in the ear canal which had made him deaf. Our vet is sure that removing the polyps will make Popeye hear again and they won't grow back. The cost of the operation is £1,000 and so, to raise funds, ACA Nic decided to do a sponsored head shave.
Nic went under the razor on 30th May at the Centre having raised £1,500 for the operation and Popeye's aftercare. He's having the surgery next week and as soon as he's recovered, he'll be available for adoption.
RSPCA Chief Inspector Richard Abbott completed the Eden Half Marathon Run on Sunday 15th October, raising £455 in sponsorship for the Branch.
Richard, a keen runner, said he was disappointed with his time of 2 hours 7 minutes because a third of the run was cross-country which was hard going but we're all proud of him and think he did wonderfully well.
RAF St. Mawgan
A team of volunteers from RAF St. Mawgan spent a day helping the RSPCA Cornwall Branch to clear a new woodland walk. The reward was to walk some of the dogs awaiting rehoming and...puppies!
Our team enjoyed getting out into the community and lending a hand. The staff appreciated the help, saying "we have had a great day welcoming RAF St. Mawgan and would urge anyone else interested in helping us to get in touch too".
