We're supporting the Scottish SPCA
The Scottish SPCA is Scotland’s animal welfare charity. We rescue every type of animal including domestic pets, wildlife, farm animals, equines and exotic animals.
We rescue animals in danger, find pets new homes, investigate abuse and prevent cruelty through our free Prevention through Education programme for Scottish schools.
Founded in 1839, the Scottish SPCA has been helping animals in Scotland for over 175 years.
We are a reporting agency to The Crown which makes us unique among all animal welfare organisations and charities in the UK. This means our inspectors are authorised to enforce animal welfare legislation and report cruelty cases directly to the procurator fiscal service.
Preventing cruelty is at the heart of our work and last year we were incredibly proud to reach more than 300,000 children through our Prevention through Education programme, which we offer free of charge to Scottish schools to encourage children to treat animals with the care and respect they deserve.
As an animal welfare charity, we receive no government or lottery funding, which means we rely entirely on donations.
We have 9 animal rescue and rehoming centres across Scotland and a built to purpose Wildlife Rescue Centre.
How we spend £1:
83p is spent directly on animal welfare
10p is spent on fundraising and promotion
7p is spent on Essential administration
