Welcome to Royston Animal Welfare  

1997 - 2022  Celebrating 25 + years of helping animals

Registered charity no. 1064870

Our main aim is pet rescue; helping cats and dogs in need from Barnsley, the surrounding South Yorkshire area and beyond and then finding them loving new homes. We rehome UK wide.

The success of Royston Animal Welfare depends on our whole team of volunteers 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 fundraise at gala's, car boots, tin raffles etc. But it does not stop there! We have a RAW army that does the many vet runs, dog walks, animal fostering, telephone messages, accounts, newsletters etc.

We would also like to thank the general public that donates and companies that sponsor RAW.

 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.

All animals who come into our care stay with us, safe and secure until a home can be found for them regardless of how long this takes. 


We desperately need funds & volunteers to continue to help more animals in need, have a look at ways you can help.
