The RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Centre Trust is an independent charity which receives no financial assistance from the National Lottery or Government and is separate from the national RSPCA. We therefore raise all of our funds internally from local people, fundraising events, companies and other organisations. These funds are vital in order for us to carry on with our work and allow us to care for the number of animals here at the centre today.
Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals in need and provide them with the love, care and attention they deserve throughout their journey to find a forever home.
For more than 40 years Radcliffe Animal Centre has been responsible for the rescue and rehoming of thousands of abandoned and neglected dogs, cats and other animals; working alongside the RSPCA inspectors to support those involved in legal cases and provide these animals with the security they need during what can be a very uncertain time for them. We ensure they have the mental and physical stimulation and the best care and rehabilitation preparing them for their life beyond the centre.
We strive to do the best we can for all the animals here at the centre and we never compromise on animal welfare.
The site was originally the home of Trevart Boarding Kennels, and in 1963 the shelter was developed and provided accommodation for 23 dogs and 60 cats.
In 1973 a separate Trust was created for the running of the shelter and that is when the Radcliffe Animal Shelter Trust came into existence. The shelter now provides accommodation for 90 dogs, 92 cats and many other small animals and birds.
