About the Branch

The Tameside and Glossop Branch of the RSPCA, is a self funded, separately registered charity, run entirely by volunteers.    We do not employ paid staff.

RSPCA branches raise money locally to support the animal welfare work they do.  The easiest way to understand this structure is to think of it in terms of a Franchise. There are over 150 Branches of the RSPCA and every Branch is slightly different from its neighbours. They operate their own animal welfare programmes, which run “in tandem” with the National Society. Each branch raises its own funds and manages its own affairs.

To find our more about our work and finances you can download/view our annual report and accounts for the last 5 years directly from the Charity Commission’s Website here

We raise funds to continue to pay for private boarding, support our volunteer fosterers and to pay for,  often large bills for veterinary treatment and medication for the cats and dogs brought into our care by RSPCA Inspectors.   When our dogs and cats are ready for adoption, they are rehomed to loving and caring new families. Please visit our cat and dog pages if you would like to adopt.

A home visit is undertaken by our volunteer adoption support volunteers to ensure a good match is made between the animal and its potential adopter.

Donations and legacies also enable us to provide assisted neutering and treatment vouchers to enable people facing financial hardship to obtain veterinary care for their animals.
