Local RSPA to hold first open day in 18 months

Published 12th Aug 2021 by Events

THE RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District Branch are looking forward to opening their doors for the first time in over 18 months for their ‘Super Small Animals Open Day’. The event will take place on Sunday 15th August, 12 - 3pm at their RSPCA Animal Centre on Wade Street, Halifax.

The charity is inviting the local community to join them for some family fun, to meet their residents and help raise vital funds for their self-funded, local Animal Centre after an incredibly tough year.

Digital Fundraiser Fay Gibbons says “We can’t wait to open our doors and see all of our fabulous supporters in person again this August 15th! We’ve got lots of fun planned for the day with stalls, games and even the chance to meet some of the furry friends we have looking for homes. It’s been a tough year for us as a charity with all the restrictions and lockdowns - but we’re so grateful that things are starting to open up again and we can hold events with our amazing supporters!’’

There is also a special small animal photo competition running alongside the event for those who may not be able to attend but would still like to be a part of the festivities. Photos can be entered online up until Thursday 12th August.

Entries can be of any ‘super small animal’ such as guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters or other small animals.

To find out more about the open day and the photo competition, you can visit the charities website here: or head over to their Facebook event page:

Please note that cattery tours will take place between 12.30 -1.30pm and the small animal unit will be open between 1.00pm – 2.00pm only. The charity asks that you turn up at these times if you would like a mini tour of these animal centre areas.
