Welcome to the RSPCA Coventry, Nuneaton & District Branch
Unfortunately we had to rush one of our pregnant mums to the vet on Saturday. We came in to find she had given birth to one kitten which she had rejected, so he had to be bottle fed. She still looked worryingly uncomfortable so we took her to the vet Incase she had any more kittens still to come. The vets did a scan and found one more kitten, so decided the best option was to do an emergency C-section to remove her last kitten and spayed her at the same time. The vets did a fantastic job! She rejected both kittens but kindly one of the vet nurses offered to take home the kittens to hand rear. Mum and kittens are doing well. Even though all was a success, this knocked us back £750. We are a struggling centre but obviously did what we had to do. If anyone could donate any money at all towards the bill of the C-section then we would be extremely grateful. If you are going to donate, please make sure it comes directly to the Coventry & Nuneaton branch as we are completely independent from other branches. Kitten season is upon us, so we are sure that this is just the start!
Many thanks in advance.

RSPCA Coventry Nuneaton and District is separately registered branch of the RSPCA National Society and primarily responsible for raising funds locally. The branch is managed by a group of local trustees who volunteer for the mammoth task of running the branch each year. As a branch of the RSPCA we are a seperately registered charity responsible for raising the £450,000 per year it costs to run the centre locally. We receive no funding from the Government or Lottery.
The trustees serve the branch area and prioritise the animals most in need, the most neglected and cruelly treated that are rescued by RSPCA inspectors operating within the branch area. These animals need many weeks of care and veterinary treatment and you can help fund this by donating now.
We offer a safe haven at our animal centre on Coundon Wedge Drive, Coventry, CV5 9DQ where we rescue, rehabilitate and rehome over a 1000 animals every year. Our animal centre provides veterinary treatment, accommodation and care for over 100 animals at any one time. It costs a massive £450,000 per year to run the centre and we urgently need your support to continue our work, sign up for our safe haven scheme and give a little each month to help us continue rescuing those animals most in need.
We continue to provide support direct to the community in our branch area through our welfare events and animal action by offering Neutering, Vaccination and Micro chipping either free or at a low cost. We are also developing our role in education within the branch area. Keep your eye on our events page for our forthcoming events in your area.
The animal centre is always full of loving animals desperately looking for a new home and a fresh start - whether you are looking for a Dog, Cat, Rabbit, Small furry or bird please check out our animals first before considering a pet store or breeder.
We really do rely on local support to keep our centre going. If you would like to help and get involved why not consider volunteering at our charity shops, coming along to our events or leave us a gift in your will
