Royston Animal Welfare

Welcome to Royston Animal Welfare 
Registered charity no. 1064870

We are looking for a very special person to look after a gorgeous bundle of joy who has recently come into RAWs care.  Blade is 1 year old and  right now is full of energy and life.  He loves to play with his toys and is very human orientated and sociable.  He came into our care after his previous owner admitted he could no longer look after him.  Blade and his sister Star had been living in awful conditions   but things started to look up when he came to us.  This was short lived however when his sister stopped eating and developed laboured breathing.  We rushed her to the vets but it was discovered she had Felv, sadly nothing could be done to save her and we had to let her go.  As Felv can be passed from cat to cat and these 2 were very close we decided to test Blade just to make sure.  We were devastated when the results came back positive.

This means we are now looking for a home with no other cats for Blade.  He also needs to be an indoor cat so as not to transmit the Felv to other felines in the area.  The prognosis isn't good but at the moment he is absolutely fine.  He's enjoying his life with RAW  but we have no idea how long this will last , it could be a couple of months it could be a few years.

Blade will go on permanent foster which means RAW will cover all his vet treatment and there will be no adoption fee. If you are interested in offering a suitable loving home for Blade please get in touch.  He's such a sweetie  and deserves to have the best life we can offer for as long as he's got left.

Our main aim is pet rescue; helping animals in need from Barnsley,
the surrounding South Yorkshire area & beyond and then finding them loving new homes.

We are involved in cat and dog rescue.

Thank you for looking on our site and we hope you will find a new pet

that will enhance your life.

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.
