The RSPCA Westmorland Branch is a charity registered in England and Wales under charity number 232236 and is a branch of the national RSPCA responsible for its own fundraising. The Westmorland Branch was registered as a charity in its own right in1965. Whilst we support and work closely with the national charity, we are a separately run autonomous charity. We are responsible for generating most of our own funds to help and care for local animals. Our monies come from our Charity shop, from fundraising events, donations and legacies. The RSPCA only exists because of public donations.
Funds raised locally are spent locally on animal welfare.
The Branch consists of volunteers who give their time, much of which is spent fundraising, doing home visits or looking after and exercising the animals in our care. We have a Branch Manager, Shop Manager and Shop Assistants.
