Despite our costs going up we've kept our donations fees unchanged since July 2008 . . . in fact in the case of cats they are currently lower!
Puppies up to six months £130
Dogs over seven years £50
Your dog will be neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, de-flead and wormed. The cost of a female neuter alone can be around £100, so your donation will save you money compared to doing these things yourself at your vets. Our prices are in line with all other dog charities, and enable us to carry on helping dogs in need.
Please remember if you obtain a dog or pupy free this would be your expected outlay. It works out much cheaper to rescue and donate plus we've done all the vet runs for you! Here is the price from four vets in your area: -
Taking the mid-point between castration and spaying, and assuming the dog needs its initial vaccinations, microchipping, de-fleaing and worming, the cost would be £274.41
Cats and Kitten - Currently at a much reduced donation fees as we have too many cats in our care.
£20 for long termers, cats over seven years and cats with medical issues.
£50 for other cats. If you are taking more than one cat it is £10 for each additional moggy.
All our cats are neutered, microchipped de-flead and wormed before being rehomed.
If you are interested in rehoming one of our cats, please call Karen 01522 889372 (North Hykeham) or Moira 01522 884142 (Doddington Park) or Panton Kennels 01673 858622 (near Wragby) to arrange an appointment to meet a cat/s. A home visit is then carried out as described above.

Rabbits - £45 for a pair or £30 for a single bunny (to be bonded with your own rabbit)
It costs £85 to spay a female bunny and £52 to castrate a male. All our rabbits are neutered for you, paid for by us. It is £32 to vaccinate a rabbit per year and £25 to chip them. Again this is all done for you when you rehome from us.
We only rehome in pairs, single if bunny does not like others, or you are bonding with existing rabbit (not with guinea pigs).
All our rabbits are neutered, myxi vaccinated and microchipped before being rehomed. We usually have babies waiting for home, and these cost around £25 each for a single rabbit from a pet shop and then you have all your veterinary costs on top.
As with all rescue animals, rabbits need your time and your committment to giving them a happy life (possible up to eight years).
Guinea Pigs - £15 per pair and £10 per single piggy
We do not home piggies to be kept on their own, unless they do not like other pigs.
Guinea pigs can also live up to eight years, and are kept in pairs or groups of females, and paired males (not with rabbits).
Please contact Sue our Guinea Pig Fosterer on 01522 540857. We will also do a pre-home visit for any guinea pigs we rehome. This is just to ensure you have a suitable home for the guineas, as described in detail within the dog section above.
We also get other animals into our care (chinchillas / mice / hamsters / gerbils / tortoises / fish...........) and so please rescue instead of buying from people and businesses who use animals to make money. Do your homework, it usually works out cheaper too when you factor in the cost of neutering, vaccinations, microchipping, de-flea and worm yourself as well as the added hassle.
A home visit is an informal visit by a volunteer, lasting around 20 minutes. This is just for us to check you have a home/family that is appropriate for your chosen dog (you don't live in a top floor flat with no garden, for example, or have several young children but want a dog that is very large and very boisterous), and you have thought about the commitment you are making, including the costs of dog ownership.
You will then be contacted by us about taking your doggy home.
RSPCA Lincolnshire Mid and Lincoln Branch priority is to take in neglect and cruelty cases from the RSPCA HQ Inspectorate although we can occasionally offer spaces to take an animal in from members of the public.
Rescue and re-homed dogs may not be fully adjusted to family life or may have experienced mistreatment. They will take a few weeks to settle and you will see change in the dog over a long period of time (up to 6 months). Taking on a rescue dog takes dedication and perseverence.
