About Radcliffe Animal Shelter

The RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Shelter Trust is an independent charity, which receives no financial assistance from The National Lottery or Government. We have to raise all of our funds from local people, companies and other organisations.

Our Mission

Our mission is to take in unwanted and abandoned animals and find them loving and permanent homes. We always make sure that all the animals in our Shelter are given all the love and care they need before they are rehomed.

We support the RSPCA Inspectors with their case animals and abandoned animals. Again we give the animals all the love and care they need for the duration of their stay at the Shelter.

We never compromise on animal welfare.

Our History

The site was originally the home of Trevart Boarding Kennels who sold it to the Nottingham & Notts branch of the RSPCA in 1962. In 1963 the shelter was developed and provided accommodation for 23 dogs and 60 cats.

In 1973 a separate Trust was created for the running of the shelter and that is when the Radcliffe Animal Shelter Trust came into existence. The shelter now provides accommodation for 90 dogs, 92 cats and many other small animals and birds.

Our Team

In 2009 the RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Shelter won the Employer of the Year Award in the finals of the Nottingham Work Based Learning Awards. We were awarded this in recognition of our support for training in the workplace and encouraging young people to achieve qualifications.

We are committed to training, supporting and nurturing apprentices so they become confident, motivated and competent in all aspects of animal care.
