The success of Royston Animal Welfare depends on our whole team of helpers who give their time

with no reward, other than being safe in the knowledge that they have helped to give an animal a better life.

We are able to rescue the animals you will see on our website thanks to all the people who 

fund raise at gala's, car boots, tin rattles etc. But it does not stop there! We have a RAW army that do 

the many vet runs, dog walks, animal fostering, telephone messages, accounts, newsletters etc etc.

We would also like to thank the general public that donate (see below) and companies that sponsor

Royston Animal Welfare.

 Not all charities are registered (always look for a charity number).

We are, so all information about our funds and how we spend them

is available for the public to view on the Charity Commission website.
