Rotherham Charity Shop

The centre appreciates any donations that you are able to offer.
Legacies are a special way of supporting a cause that personally matters to you. We know that legacies are left by people who care as much about animals and animal welfare as we do.
The legacies and gifts people leave in their Wills are really essential to Branches of the RSPCA, especially local branches like Doncaster Rotherham, as no funding is received from either the Government or the National Society of the RSPCA.
It is essential if you are considering leaving a legacy or gift to the RSPCA for the benefit of the animals in the Doncaster and Rotherham area, you should ensure that the wording ‘for the benefit of the RSPCA Doncaster Rotherham and District Branch’ or ‘The RSPCA South Yorkshire Animal Centre’ is included in the text of the will. The Branch’s registered Charity number ‘506259?, should also be stated.
Legacies and gifts from wills are a very important part of the Branch’s total income. They ensure that the Doncaster, Rotherham and District Branch will be in a position to continue the much needed work of Animal Welfare in the Doncaster and Rotherham area for many years to come.
The South Yorkshire animal Centre requires in excess of £375,000 per year to operate. One way in which you can help both us and the environment is through our recycling schemes which will aid us in continuing the work of the animal centre. All items for recycling can be dropped off at the animal centre during our opening hours of 11am to 4pm.
Items which we can recycle include:
- Used postage stamps
- Mobile phones
- Used ink cartridges
Used ink cartridges that we can recycle include:
- All Hewlett Packard inkjet cartridges
- All Lexmark inkjet cartridges
- Canon BC02/05, BX-3
Unfortunately we are unable to recycle Epson inkjet cartridges.
Other items can be offered for resale through our Charity shops please refer to our charity shop details for more information.
The kennel and cattery sponsorship scheme is a way in which you as an individual, part of a group or a business can support our animals by sponsoring an animal pen for a year. Despite the title of the scheme there are many types of animal pen to sponsor. On deciding to sponsor, a plaque with your details on will be displayed on the pen for the duration of the sponsorship.
Sponsorship fees are as follows:
Dog kennel – Yearly sponsorship £300 (£75 per quarter, £25 per month)
Cattery pen – Yearly sponsorship £200 (£50 quarterly, £16.66 per month)
Rabbit pen – Yearly sponsorship £50 (£12.50 per quarter)
Small animal pen/cage – Yearly sponsorship £30 (£7.50 per quarter)
Aviary – yearly sponsorship £75 (£18.75 per quarter, £6.25 per month)
If you decide to sponsor an animal pen you can make your gift go even further by completing a gift aid form. By confirming you are a UK taxpayer your donation can be increased by almost an extra £1 for every £3 you donate and all you need to do is fill out the gift aid form at the centre. If you would be interested in supporting us in this way please contact the centre.
The South Yorkshire Animal Centre reserves the right to refuse to accept sponsorship form certain companies, groups or individuals which may result in a conflict of interest with RSPCA policies.
