For many years we have wanted to open a shop in Withington and finally this year we’ve achieved our dream! All hands were on deck and our team worked so hard getting the shop ready including a complete refit, decorating and stocking up. Choosing the perfect wallpaper design was high on the agenda as well as general ‘beautification!’

 

 
 


I think you’ll agree the result was more than worth it and on the 11 June 2018 we opened our brand spanking new charity shop on Wilmslow Road! 

 

 

 

Fast forward and we’ve been open a month and its been going better than any of us expected! We’ve been really well received within the community and sales have been fantastic. Our charity shops fund our work therefore the more money they make the more animals we can help who have been rescued from cruelty, neglect and abandonment by the National RSPCA inspectors. The shop couldn’t have opened at a better time as demand on the charity has continued. In June our animal rehoming team smashed their adoption record and rehomed 56 animals (that’s 31 cats, 11 rabbits, 6 guinea pigs, 6 rats and 2 reptiles!). So a huge thank you to everyone that has made us so welcome to the area!

Just some of the animals we rehomed in June!
