Volunteers needed for our new charity shop!
Can you spare 3 hours a week/ fortnight to help us?
We are now in the process of opening a new charity shop in Bridlington. As the shop is much bigger we will be needing more volunteers, so if you would like to help, please complete the application form below and either email it back to us at:
email@example.com or post it to RSPCA, 60 Moor Lane, Carnaby, Bridlington, YO16 4UU. There will be a variety of jobs at our new shop, not just at front of house serving customers, so something to suit everyone.
We look forward to you joining us in our exiting new venture.

Hedgehogs in gardens can be fed on dog food or cat food, but not ones containing fish, and given water to drink until they hibernate. Under no circumstances should they be given milk as this can make them really ill or worse. Piles of fallen leaves and small twigs are ideal for them to hibernate over winter in gardens.
Please do not use netting in your gardens or allotments as hedgehogs get trapped in it. We have had many casualties taken to the vets that have been trapped in netting, some of them in a really bad way and some who despite everyones best efforts have sadly not made it.
Hedgehogs should not normallybe out and about in daylight. It is a sign that they are in trouble. Hedgehogs can be taken to our local vets for checking over and given any necessary treatment. They will then go to Jane, our hedgehog volunteer, or another hedgehog rescue.
Please see our designated hedgehog page for more information.
Every cat that comes into our care has a full health check including being tested for FELV/FIV if appropriate. This is really important and especially so if going into a household that has existing cats. All cats are treated for worms and fleas. Our cats are given treatment for fleas and ticks that last for 3 months. With the exception of young kittens all cats are neutered and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Adopters of young kittens are given a voucher to cover the cost of neutering when the kitten is old enough. All this treatment costs our local branch over £120 for a male cat & £160 for a female. We keep cats in our care for a minimum of 3 weeks until they have been given both vaccinations. It costs £37 a week to board a cat so add that to the veterinary care makes the total cost in excess of £260 even if a cat is lucky enough to find a new home straightaway. Sometimes cats can spend many months in our care before they find their forever home. Many cats also need extra veterinary care, (not many come in in tip top condition!)such as dental treatment.
If you are looking to adopt a cat please look at the lovely pictures on our cats looking for new homes page, download and complete the Perfect Match form or ring 07712459857 for more information on cats and kittens.
