Towels and tins of cat food and biscuits

We receive fewer donated tins of meat for our cats than for the dogs. Our food bill is very high so donations of tinned meat and biscuits for the cats will be much appreciated.

Dog Chews

We need rawhide chews. They are great for the dogs, giving them something to do and reducing stress.


Hay or straw

We will be grateful to receive donations of hay or straw to use in the small animal accommodation.



We continually need supplies of newspaper and will be glad to receive donations.

Your help is very much appreciated.

House clearances and donations

If you need to arrange a house clearance please ring the Animal Centre and we'll come to collect by appointment. house clearance We are glad to receive your unwanted good quality items to sell in our shops such as clothing, accessories, and bric-a-brac. We cannot sell electrical appliances or large furniture.

Goods can be taken to any of the shops (addresses on our RSPCA Shops page) or to the Centre at St Columb.

Golden Oldie Appeal


Our funds have been depleted due to increasing costs and so we are launching a special Golden Oldie donations appeal highlighting the plight of elderly pets that are brought to us for rehoming.
