Welcome to the RSPCA Craven & Upper Wharfedale Branch Website
Registered charity no: 232237
Our branch covers almost 350 square miles of the rural Craven dales. Towns and villages served by the branch include Ilkley, Keighley, Skipton, Barnoldswick, Slaidburn and Settle, Haworth & Grassington and more.
As separately registered charities, each RSPCA branch raises money to deliver vital animal welfare services locally. To keep operating costs to a minimum our branch is run by volunteers - ranging from a team of locally elected trustees along with the support of a team of branch volunteers. The branch is almost completely self-financing which means that we rely on donations from the public and businesses within our area, all the donations we receive help us to continue with our vital work. Our animal welfare work includes re-homing cats and dogs, fundraising and also raising the profile of animal welfare issues.
Running a branch is obviously very time consuming and our volunteers help us with a range of tasks from fostering animals to answering the phone, from fundraising events to dog walking and administration tasks. Without the help of all our volunteers the branch simply would not be able to operate, we always need more people to join us and help the branch. Could you spare some time for us?
