We now have 2,000 likes on our branch page and 1,600 + on our friends page; which is a staggering amount of support and we thank everyone of you for caring about the work we do and for the animals in our care. 

These pages are run mainly by volunteers and staff in their own time and some queries and requests made on these pages, do take a long time for the volunteers to get to. If you have any questions or queries regarding our animals or the work we do please use the contact details above.

Which animals should we help?

The York Animal Home receives many calls every day from members of the public, asking us to take in animals for rehoming.  

We are the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and our mission is help those animals that are neglected, mistreated, abused and abandoned.  Sadly there are far too many of these and as soon as we rehome an animal there is another animal in extreme need, waiting for help. We are always full.

When we receive a call asking to help rehome a pet, we do ask various questions of the owners, about the situation of the animals in question and only the urgent and extreme cases can make it to our waiting list (currently 24 dogs and 30 cats). It breaks our hearts to say no to some people but we only have a limited amount of space, manpower and resources and we have to prioritise the animals that need our help the most.

We hope you appreciate that the priority of this charity is to help the animals who are in the most urgent need of care, welfare, rehabilitation and medical attention.
