We are a separate charity operating under RSPCA rules, our work is invaluable to the lives of the many animals that have suffered from cruelty or neglect. We are responsible for raising our operating funds locally. We are an independently funded animal re-homing centre that depends on generous donations and fund-raising activities. It costs over £5,000 per week to finance our animal home. The money we raise is used to support animal welfare and re-homing within our district and animal home. On average, over 500 animals are re-homed from this centre each year. With the aid of the national society’s local inspectors, the branch services a wide area including Ashby, Measham, Netherseal, Packington, Swadlincote, Melbourne, Ticknall, Winshill, Uttoxeter, Stapenhill, Tamworth, Lichfield, Rugeley and all the villages in between!
We are now open by appointment only. To see what animals we have available, head over to the “Adopt a Pet” pages and if you’re interested, fill out an application form.
Please note that we are receiving a large amount of applications, therefore the waiting list to adopt is quite long. If you don’t hear from us, this just means we don’t have anything suitable right now for you. We keep your form out for eight weeks and then file it for up to a year before destroying it. If after eight weeks you still haven’t found a match, please feel free to let us know that you wish for us to keep your form out.
We miss each and every volunteer but unfortunately we are still not in a position to welcome you all back. We will be sure to update you as soon as we receive instructions that we are able to do this.
Unfortunately we are also still unable to hold any fundraising events and we are unsure if we will be able to any time soon.
If you can afford to, we would really appreciate donations, no matter how large or small, we need our supporters now more than ever!
You can donate by clicking the “Donate” button at the top of the page, send a cheque, call us or to donate £5 you can text “HILLFIELD” to 70085!
Thank you for your continued support,
From all at Hillfield Animal Home
