    SUPPORT THE BRANCH TODAY



The RSPCA Cardiff & District Branch has been in existence for well over a century!

Throughout this time we have continued to help local animals in need.

We no longer have an animal centre in Cardiff, however, we continue to rehome hundreds of unwanted or cruelty case animals, using private boarding establishments and via our team of dedicated fosterers.

Via our Welfare Assistance Project, we issue vouchers enabling pet owners (on low income and in receipt of benefits) with emergency vet bills.  And we help towards the cost of neutering and microchipping

We often organise animal ‘Community Care’ events, where we offer help and guidance on many animal issues.  We support our local RSPCA Inspectors in whatever way we can, as well as assisting our nearest RSPCA Animal Centres in Newport and Swansea, also the RSPCA Clinic at Merthyr Tydfil.

As you can see, RSPCA Cardiff & District is extremely active - but none of this would be possible without the help of our supporters.  

Branches of the RSPCA are separately registered charities, responsible for raising funds locally.

Therefore, our work helping LOCAL animals in need depends on the generosity of our supporters and the funds we raise locally.

LATEST NEWS

  • MICHELLE'S 40 CHALLENGES - AN UPDATE!

    We've had an update from Michelle - our amazing fosterer who's currently raising money for the Branch.

    Please support Michelle by making a donation today via her JUST GIVING page:

    As I approached my 39th birthday, I did start feeling a bit old and suddenly very aware of the milestone of 40. The list of 40 challenges seemed like a great idea after a couple of drinks and the list of suggestions from friends for the final 40 list ranged from extreme to bizarre to the downright ridiculous! After much deliberation, I thought I had set a list that was achievable but would also push my resolve, fitness levels and determination. I chose things that were things I had always secretly fancied doing or things that I wanted to improve on or just prove to myself that I could do anything that I set my mind on and hopefully make it a year to remember! 

    All in all it has been a busy year full of fun and adventure. My favourite challenges have been the Big Zipper, the Bike Ride, Chocolate Games and the Kindness Acts. The challenges that involved other people taking part with me have been the most fun and memorable and made me feel closer to friends and also helped me make new friends.  

    The challenges that I disliked the most were the 40 days without chocolate, the 40 hour silence and the Ukelele (as I couldn't do it).  I managed to conquer one phobia (Bridges) but think I might have picked up a new one - 'slides' after my most traumatic moment during a challenge, which was towards the end of the mudrunner event. 

    As I reflect back on the year, I am really glad I did it and I feel proud that I managed to achieve so much and in particular what I set out to do. I have learnt some important life lessons and taught my children a few along the way and I managed to raise money for the RSPCA. I'm not sure what my fortieth year will bring, but I think I will have to set myself a few small challenges throughout the year just to keep myself motivated, but just not 41!

    If anyone would like to contribute to my RSPCA fundraising page, here is the link... https://www.justgiving.com/Michelle-Reed-perez1/

    Almost there now Michelle - keep up the good work!
