Local RSPCA sending out mystery ‘Valentail’s’ messages to supporters this Feb from animals in their care!

Posted on


THE RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford & District are adding an exciting new twist to their annual Valentail’s appeal. Not only can you send a card to one of the animals in their centre, but any supporter who donates to the appeal will also receive a surprise message from an animal in their care on Valentine’s Day!


The Valentail’s appeal will run from February 1st – February 14th, with donors receiving a heartfelt message from an RSPCA animal on Valentine’s Day and being automatically entered into a prize draw to win a Valentine’s Hamper too. The local RSPCA branch hopes the appeal will raise vital funds, find homes for the animals in their care and engage the local community by having a little fun this February!

Fay GibbonsDigital & Events Fundraiser said, “Valentine’s Day is traditionally a time for love and our February appeal gives you the chance to show you care for local animals in need. Some of our animals have never experienced love in their lives before, which is why this appeal means a lot to us!


“We’ve made Valentail’s even more quirky this year by asking the public to make a small online donation and in return, you’ll receive a surprise message from one of our ‘Lonely Paws Club!’. This is a really unique appeal, so we hope that our supporters and local community will get involved and join in the fun!’’


You can donate from February 1st – February 14th by visiting their website at www.rspcahalifaxhuddersfieldbradford.org.uk or follow the local RSPCA branch on their social media channels.

The self-funding Animal Centre also asks their supporters to share who they received their Valentines message from on their own social media platforms, with the hashtag #MyValentail.

The aim of this is to get the animals trending online on Valentine’s Day – Monday 14th February, in the hope that it may find them new, loving homes.


The RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield & Bradford Branch estimates that it costs £132 a month to look after each animal in their centre, so donations to the Valentail’s Appeal will go a long way to help the branch find homes for the many cats, dogs and small animals in their care.
