To assist us in paying for urgent medical treatment and boarding for the animals that are brought into us for help before re-homing

by RSPCA East Norfolk in Great Yarmouth, England, United Kingdom

Our 3 charity shops had to close last year which is where a large proportion of our income comes from.

Our welfare clinic had continued to operate bringing in income, however with the added cost of PPE, sanitiiser and additional cleaning , costs have increased.

The availability of some drugs e.g vaccines has also pushed the prices up and we try wherever possible not to pass this on. The cost of drugs used on animals in our care awaiting re-homing has increased significantly with no extra income to cover this, again in particular vaccine costs. Recently, animals coming into our care have been particularly poorly and needed more than normal spent to rehabilitate them for re-homing. 

We have seen animals with broken legs, animals needing dental, hernia repairs, etc. Our re-homing has been slower due to restrictions (although we have been able to re-home some animals remotely as per DEFRA guidelines) - this reduces our income as adoption fees coming in to us have been lower. We have been unable to run fundraising events such as open days at the cattery. 

Any money received  will help us enormously by enabling us to continue rehabilitating the really sick animals coming in to our care. 

We always try our very best to give any animal the best chance possible - we constantly negotiate vet fees, rely on local vets for their kindness in doing operations cheaply but vet fees still mount up very quickly!
