How You Can Support Us

Funding is Vital to Help our Animals

RSPCA Cornwall Branch is run as an independent charity under the umbrella of the National RSPCA, so we rely on local fundraising, sponsors and donations to maintain our finances.

Our fundraising has been severely impacted by Covid restrictions over the last 2 years, which has been a very challenging time for everyone.  Many charities are struggling with the lack of support when everyone naturally has their own financial concerns and other worries to contend with.  We very much appreciate any support you can give us.

If you are an individual, group, company or other organisation like a school or club, and would like to hold a fundraising event or activity for us, please download our Fundraising Handbook here.

You can also find other ways to help and support us below:
