Welcome To Your Local R.S.P.C.A Branch Website

This website helps you understand the work of the RSPCA Macclesfield,South East Cheshire, and Buxton Branch, Caring for the welfare of, rescuing and rehoming animals in parts of Cheshire and Derbyshire.

Our branch, like all local RSPCA branches is a separate charity which though under the umbrella of the national RSPCA headquarters,is not centrally funded.Neither the national society nor this branch receive monies from the Government. This means we exist through donations from the local community and must raise funds through regular events within the branch's boundaries. These pages include details of all animals temporarily in our care and for which we seek new permanent or foster homes. Please look and see if you can help us to help these unfortunate animals. If you are interested in joining the RSPCA click the link to the left .. helping us.

Joining the RSPCA makes you part of this important animal charity at both national and local branch levels.

The branch does not have it's own animal centre, we rely on fosterers and private boarding so space is limited. Our priority are the animals that come in via the Inspectors; abuse, cruelty, neglect and
abandonment cases. However, when we have space we do take in dogs, cats, rabbits, small furries and some caged animals/birds direct from members of the public if they need to rehome their pets. Before contacting us please go to the rehoming page for important advice (it highlights the dangers if you rehome your pet privately) and contacts of other rescues in our area who may be able to assist you in the meantime.

SERIOUS APPEAL FOR HELP. Itís with great sadness that the committee has had to make the decision of suspending the intake of all animals till the end of the year due to high spending on private boarding (we donít have our own centre) and vet bills. We will re-assess in October. However, we can take in animals from Greater Manchester Animal Hospital only if they can be placed in our foster homes. GMAH is our priority as all the animals that come in via Inspectors from the Region go there first for assessments, neutering, micro-chipping and vaccinating which saves branches a lot of money. Of course we donít have many foster homes (we do need pet and small child free foster homes for dogs). This is why we rely so heavily on fosterers. We will also be relying heavily on donated food to share amongst our fosterers to stop any financial claims to the branch. I personally was in tears, Iím the cat and dog rehoming coordinator and have been for about 9 years and this is the first time weíve been in this situation, itís breaking my heart. Private boarding alone costs us over £5000 per month. All our money raised (fundraising team works so hard!!) goes to the animals but unfortunately we have no choice but to put them in private boarding and of course vet bills are constant due to the nature of what we deal with. WE REALLY DO NEED THE PUBLICíS SUPPORT. We cannot function without money at the end of the day. Please, please help us! We are begging for people to donate via texting. There are also other ways to donate, please go to our website www.rspca-macclesfield.org.uk and to the donate page. THANKYOU XXX

If you are unfortunate enough to be in a position where you have to sell or give your dog away please consider the risks.

Ensure that any dog you sell or re-home is subject to either a home check or the potential new owners are quizzed on their knowledge and experience in dog care. Also that the new owners are aware of the cost and responsibility and know the needs of the breed and/or individual dog's needs.

Some people take on free or very cheap family dogs and using them in the brutal illegal sport, dog fighting. Dogs that will not fight are tied up and used as 'bait dogs' to be the punch bag for fighting dogs in training. Please be aware and make sure you sell your beloved dog for a price only an animal lover would spend on it, DO NOT advertise Free to good home on the internet or shop windowns.

Take it to a rescue shelter where they will do home checks before handing over an animal. Anybody enquiring about your dog in any situation should be quizzed and anybody suspicious should be reported to the police. Sadly, small breeds of dogs and cats are also used in dog fighting as "bait" for the fighting dogs that are being trained.
