Welcome to Goole & District RSPCA
Fun day at Asselby
An incredible £724.05 was raised at our Afternoon in Asselby cream tea event on Sunday 17th July at Asselby Nurseries. We also had an inquiry for two kittens so a purrfectly fabulous day had by all. Thank you to all the hard working volunteers and everyone who attended for your fantastic support. Pictured is Chairperson Amy Mellor with two of a few character kittens on view at the event.
About four weeks old, these four adorable kittens with a lovely young tabby mum sought refuge down a drain. They were obviously very desperate to find themselves in such a scary dark place. We believe they were probably born in a house as they are very cuddly and responsive to people. Mum can be a bit wary initially but is appreciating her food and will come up to you like a meerkat for attention. We will keep you updated on their progress.
Fun afternoon in Asselby
Join us on Sunday 17th July 12-4pm at Asselby Cattery / nursery for a
purrfect afternoon of cream teas, barbecue, tombola's all to lend a paw
to Goole and District RSPCA.
Barking mad fun at the dog show
Goole and District RSPCA Dog Show made for a barking mad day on
Saturday 18th of June at West Park, Goole. Various stalls, a dog agility
course, bouncy castle and a model train ride provided lots of fun for
all the family. Over a hundred dogs competed in fun classes from Best
Child Handler to Best Six Legs. £991.59 was raised for the branch on the
day with more donations from stalls coming in.
Press Officer Georgina Petty said "Whether your prized pooch was prettiest eyes or you tried your luck on a tombola, every penny spent will go towards lending a paw to local animals in need" "A big thank you to Cllr Ian Blackburn for compering the event, all the hard working volunteers, Peppers Marquees, Royal Canin for prizes, all our judges, stallholders and of course the dapper dogs and their four legged friends for an entertaining afternoon!"

Lending A Paw To Cats In Crisis
Goole RSPCA lent a paw to credit crunched cats and their penny pinched owners on Saturday 11th June with the Cat Action Day at Trinity Church in Goole. 69 cats (39 females and 30 males) got their paws on purrfect discounted offers.
34 cats were ID chipped on the day, 25 neutering vouchers were issued thanks to the branch and Cats Protection, 63 cats took advantage of the free vet check by Vermuyden Vets and received free flea and worm treatment.
Press Officer and Secretary Georgina said "Thank you to all our tireless volunteers, Vermuyden Vets, Trinity Church and everyone who supported the event. We swapped unsuitable collars for brand new safety ones, gave out lots of advice and leaflets so it was a great day for preventing cruelty and promoting kindness in the area"
" We are extremely busy with kitten season so we are particularly pleased that owners have come forward and agreed that it is nicer to neuter!"
Cats In Crisis – Can You Lend A Paw?
We are looking for a purr-fectly patient, experienced cat lover who
has the time and energy to give special adult cats the chance to find a
forever home by becoming a cat fosterer.
Goole and District R.S.P.C.A work closely with the national inspectorate to lend a paw to cats in crisis. Be part of a dedicated branch of volunteers looking to prevent cruelty and promote kindness in the Goole and District area. This is a special role that requires a lot of time, dedication and perseverance as caring for our character cats can be challenging. Some cats need medication and monitoring, others require a lot of hands on socialisation. Every cat is different.
Goole and District RSPCA rely on our fosterers to help the re-homing team assess the purr-fect match for a forever home, so your input is vital in getting your foster friend the happy ending they deserve. The branch are looking for people who live in the Goole or DN14 area with transport to take their foster cats to the vets used by the RSPCA and pick up supplies provided by the branch.
Many different people come forward looking for a forever friend including people with young children so it is essential potential fosterers are able to be flexible, open minded and don’t mind welcoming visitors to the home. A trial period will help you and the branch get to know one another. Training, support with filling out forms and fostering expenses will be covered by the branch but the contribution you will make towards animal welfare in your local area will be priceless.
