The RSPCA Coventry and District Branch on Coundon Wedge Drive opened in 1981 and it rehomes over 700 animals a year. Although the Centre receives a level of funding towards the running costs from the National RSPCA, the Centre is a separately registered charity which relies primarily on local public donations to help fund the Centre, which costs £35,000 per month to keep open and the Centre’s vet bills can be over £1,000 per week.
For every month that our shops are closed and there is no fundraising activity, we will see a loss of between £25,000-£30,000. This is a significant income reduction, which is only sustainable for a short period of time before our reserves will be depleted.
We understand what a difficult time this is for businesses in our region, but if you can offer any support to help us to continue our vital work through this difficult time, you can text to donate or contact [email protected].
