We are an independent Trust, managed and financed separately to the national RSPCA but working alongside each other for the benefit of animal welfare.
By donating using the links on this web site you are donating directly to the care of animals and work of Radcliffe Animal Centre.
Our dental machine has been working overtime these past few weeks and general wear and tear over a number of years has taken its toll. We had a small repair last week after extracting over 146 teeth from the new dogs. Even this repair was at a cost of £450 but the reality is, we have an old machine and need to replace it with a new one very soon.
Along with neutering, dentals are the most frequent procedure we carry out here.
Infected gums and rotten teeth are often found in cases of neglect and significant dental work is needed .
Little Monty had to have 29 teeth removed after we revealed his poodle identity and were finally able to examine his mouth.
A scale and polish is also often required before an animal is ready for adoption so it’s a machine we can’t ever be without.
Could you help us to raise enough funds for a new machine?
Covid restrictions are preventing our face to face fundraising opportunities and donations from people visiting the centre have almost dried up because we are unable to open for public viewing.
Unfortunately it is highly unlikely lockdown restrictions will be lifted over the next few weeks. With this in mind our adoption procedures must continue under the Covid guidelines issued by DEFRA whilst these restrictions remain in place.
As such you are not permitted to travel from outside the area for the purpose of adoption until these restrictions are lifted.
With this mind we are currently having to prioritise adoption forms to those living within an approximate 15 miles of Radcliffe Animal Centre so animals may be transported by key workers where necessary.
We realise this will cause disappointment for some but it is vital we all follow legal guidelines in order to fight the Covid virus.
Thank you for your continued patience and support. We look forward to welcoming you back to visit the centre when it is safe to do so.
