The South Cotswolds Branch of the RSPCA is an independently registered charity and has been offering animal welfare services since 1962. The Branch is run by a committee of volunteer trustees; most have full time occupations and willingly give up their spare time to oversee the branch, provide governance and develop sustained recurring revenue.
The Branch operates a twice weekly veterinary clinic in Stroud and has charity shops located in Cirencester, Nailsworth, Tetbury, Wotton-Under-Edge and Stroud. It provides various animal welfare services in the Cirencester, Fairford, Tetbury, Nailsworth, Wotton-under-Edge, Berkeley and Stonehouse areas. Its main focus is the re-homing of unwanted domestic animals, predominantly dogs and cats.
As an independently registered charity, the Branch has to raise all the funds necessary to support its work. This is done through various fundraising activities, our shops, legacies and donations. All money raised locally is used for local animal welfare, benefiting the local community by helping it care for its pets as well as helping animals who are unfortunate enough to lose their home or who are without a home.
The branch trustees are constantly looking at ways to generate additional sustained income from new sources and the existing shops. If you have good business or organisational skills and feel that you want to put something back in to society, volunteering to be a trustee could be the most challenging and rewarding thing you could do. It requires long-term commitment and, at least, a few hours of your time each week. If you are interested please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call on 01453 890014.
