RSPCA WIRRAL & CHESTER BRANCH
  • Need

    Need

    TO OFFER REHOMING OPPORTUNITIES TO ANIMALS THAT HAVE SUFFERED CRUELTY OR CAN NO LONGER BE PROPERLY CARED FOR BY THEIR OWNERS. THESE ANIMALS ARE BROUGHT TO US BY RSPCA INSPECTORS OR MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC AND WE LOOK TO FIND THEM NEW OWNERS TO GIVE THEM A SECOND CHANCE.

    Solution

    WITHOUT THE EXISTENCE OF THE ANIMAL CENTRE, FEWER ANIMALS WILL BE RESCUED RESULTING IN MORE UNWANTED OR UNCARED FOR PETS BEING UNNECESSARILY EUTHANASED.

    THE BRANCH ALSO OFFERS ASSISTANCE TO QUALIFYING MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC TO HELP MEET THE COSTS OF VETERINARY TREATMENTS THAT HELP TO PREVENT UNNECESSARY SUFFERING.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    TO CONTINUE TO RAISE SUFFICIENT FUNDS TO ENSURE THE LONG-TERM VIABILITY OF THE PROJECT.

    Activities

    » WE ALREADY RUN A CHARITY SHOP THAT HELPS TO RAISE AROUND £30,000 PA . OUR AUXILIARY GROUP HOLDS FUNDRAISING EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR & RAISES £4,000

    Success will be...THE ONGOING OPERATION OF THE ANIMAL CENTRE & WELFARE TREATMENT & MICRO-CHIPPING SCHEMES THAT WE CURRENTLY OFFER.


  • Impact

    Impact

    IT WILL PROVIDE LESS RELIANCE ON LEGACIES AND PROVIDE THE SURETY OF ONGOING FUNDING.

    OUR SUCCESS CAN BE EASILY MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF UNWANTED ANIMALS RE-HOMED AS WELL AS THE NUMBER OF ANIMALS SUPPORTED UNDER OUR WELFARE TREATMENT, NEUTERING & MICROCHIPPING SCHEMES.

    Risk

    THE CURRENT DOWNTURN IN THE ECONOMY HAS AFFECTED US BOTH IN TERMS OF DONATIONS AND RE-HOMING OPPORTUNITIES FOR DOGS IN PARTICULAR.
    WE HAVE ALREADY REDUCED COSTS BY OVER £100,000 OVER THE PAST THREE YEARS, BUT WITHOUT INCREASED DONATIONS, THEN THE FUTURE OF THE ANIMAL CENTRE IS UNDER REAL THREAT.

    Reporting

    VIA OUR ANNUAL REPORT & ACCOUNTS THAT IS A PUBLIC DOCUMENT AVAILABLE TO ALL AND PUBLISHED ON OUR WEBSITE.
