Here at the RSPCA Doncaster and Rotherham Branch, we care for over 1000 animals per year. It’s not surprising to us that puppies and kittens attract so much attention within a matter of hours and quickly find their forever homes. However, the majority of our animals are beyond this age and come to us in search of their happy ending after not having had the best start to life.

 

As part of our strategy to promote responsible pet ownership, we aim to encourage people to #adoptdontshop. There are several benefits of adopting an animal from us. All have been vet checked, and not only are you finding your lifelong companion and improving the prospects of their future, you are also giving us the opportunity to dedicate our time to another animal who needs our care and rehabilitation.

 

Mable and Maple are our current longest stay residents. They are a pair of young sister rabbits who have been in our care for over 6 months, after being found straying at a young age. They have spent the majority of their life with us and sadly have never experienced a loving family home. Like most other rabbits, they love their fresh vegetables and will make a great addition to any home.

Our next longest stay animal is Casper. He is a neutered male rabbit looking to be rehomed with a female bunny to keep him company. Casper has provided our staff with lots of laughs over the 5 months he has been with us. He loves always having things to do, whether this be enrichment toys, exploring his accommodation, or chomping on his favourite veggies.

 

Our longest stay feline resident is Mayah. He is a gorgeous boy who has massively come out of his shell whilst being with us. When he first meets new people, he can understandably be a little unsure. However, when given time and patience, he proves to be a very loyal companion who loves nothing more than having a fuss and some human company. He would like to be an indoor-only cat.

 

Rocco is our longest stay canine resident; he has been with us almost 4 months. He is such a remarkable boy and is sure to bring lots of smiles to the family who choose to adopt him. He loves off-lead exercise in our secure compound, and loves to play ball. Although his main passion is playing, he does like to engage in cuddles and lots of fusses when it is quiet. He would benefit from owners who have previous experience with Rottweilers, and since he enjoys having all the attention to himself, he would be best suited to a quieter household with no other pets or children. 

 

Whether you are on the lookout for a dynamic duo or a sole companion, we have a wide variety of animals currently available for adoption – from dogs and cats, to rabbits, guinea pigs and quails.
