THE RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District branch will hold their annual Christmas Fair & Open Day at their Wade Street animal centre on Sunday 3rd December from 12-3pm.
The local, independently funded RSPCA are holding their open day to show their supporters the important care and rehabilitation work they do for the many cats, dogs and small animals who will spend Christmas in their Centre.
With the cost of living continuing to affect the community and local charities alike, the local RSPCA hopes this event will not only be a day of happiness and fun but will also help raise vital funds and awareness to help find new homes for the animals who will spend Christmas in rescue.
The RSPCA Animal Centre on Wade Street has been caring for local animals in need for over 40 years at their current premises – and even longer at various premises throughout Halifax and Bradford, dating back to 1936 and further!
Lauren Moore, Fundraising Manager said “We’re looking forward to opening our doors this December and giving our supporters a warm, festive welcome!
We’ve got lots of Christmas fun planned for all the family to enjoy including stalls, games, music, raffles, refreshments and the chance to meet some of the animals we have looking for homes too! It’s sure to get everyone in the Christmas spirit!”
So far this year, the RSPCA branch has successfully found homes for 81 dogs, 194 cats and 44 small animals.
Adoptions have been affected by the cost of living crisis this year and some animals have been in the branch’s care longer than usual, but the RSPCA Team are hopeful that they can find homes for more animals before the Christmas period starts.
