Here at the RSPCA Doncaster and Rotherham Branch, we care for over 1,000 animals per year ranging from dogs, cats, puppies and kittens to birds, wildlife and rabbits. We aim to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome every animal that we care for. That being said, some animals are in our care longer than others.
Below you will find our current long stays residents, all of whom are ready and waiting for their forever families.
Mable and Maple are our current longest stay residents. They are a pair of young sister rabbits who have been in our care for over 7 months, after being found stray at a young age. They have spent the vast majority of their life with us and sadly have never experienced a loving family home. Like most other rabbits, they love their fresh vegetables and will make a great addition to any home. As they are bonded to one another they will need to find a home that is happy to accept both of them.
Our longest stay feline residents are Elijah and Erica, this bonded pair started their cattery journey being quite timid, but since settling in and making friends with staff, they are now a super affectionate pair and love having fusses. Since they have been in our care, they are starting to show more of their true selves. They are looking for the perfect home where they can grow their personalities even more. Elijah and Erica would be best suited to a family with no other pets and children over the age of 12.
Stella is our longest stay canine. She’s only 11 months old and has been with us for almost 4 months now. Stella’s a sweet girl and could live with children over 12 years old. She would need to be the only dog in the household for now. Due to a leg injury early on in life, Stella requires physiotherapy treatment and would need a family who understands she may need additional care in the future.
Whether you are on the lookout for a dynamic duo or a sole companion, we have a wide variety of animals currently available for adoption – from dogs and cats to rabbits and guinea pigs.
When one of our animals becomes available for adoption, they are posted on our website (https://www.rspcadoncasterrotherham.org.uk/animals-for-adoption) and Facebook page. If you are interested in adopting an animal, please follow the process that is explained on our website.
There are many ways to help RSPCA Doncaster, Rotherham and District Branch with our mission to rehome and rehabilitate animals including volunteering, donating cash or goods, leaving a legacy, and sponsoring through our Safe Haven programme and attending events. We have charity shops at Bawtry, Rossington and Thorne, as well as eBay and Depop. At the Animal Centre, we rehabilitate and rehome the animals in our care and have a pet supplies store on site for all your requirements.
