Environmental Air Source Heat Pump at RescueCentre

by Royal Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals Norfolk West Branch in King's Lynn, Norfolk, United Kingdom

We did it
On 5th January 2024 we successfully raised £25,981 ( + est. £74.00 Gift Aid ) with 659 supporters in 42 days

The Boilers we have at our Rehoming Centre are over 13 years old and we want to replace them with modern, efficient Air Source Heat Pumps.

 New stretch target

If we are able to go beyond our intial target we would like to add a hot water tank to the system whch will save us even more electricity. 

We’re an independent branch of the RSPCA which means we are fully self-financed with a rehoming Centre for Dogs, Cats, & Rabbits in West Norfolk.

In the last 5 yrs we’ve rehomed over 2,000 animals. We also offer community pet welfare support, in the form of financial vouchers for neutering and for unexpected & unmanageable vet bills. The financial crisis is making this support for the local community so important, in the last 5 years we have provided £91002 in Pet Welfare support!

As our campaign begins we have 12 puppies in our care, some of which have been rejected by their mother as she was extremely poorly! The day before Storm Babet hit us one of our kennel block boilers went wrong and there was a 7 day delivery on the failed part! As you can imagine it’s absolutely crucial that these puppies are kept warm and having our old boilers fail again is not an option - Especially as we are now heading into winter!

OUR VISION... is to have the most environmentally sound Rehoming Centre in the country...

  • We have the maximum amount of solar panels our site will allow 
  • We have installed batteries to store the excess power that we produce
  • We have changed all our lighting to LED 
  • We have just taken delivery of our electric animal ambulance 

If you are able to help us we will be very grateful and so will ALL our animals!
