Due to regulations, we cannot sell anything that would be unsafe for someone to buy – anything that is broken, dangerous, unhygienic, where its safety cannot be proven or it would be illegal for us to sell. Please do not bring these items to us as we will have to incur costs for their disposal.
In particular, we can’t accept:

  • medication, solvents, used dentures, jewellery for pierced body-parts and cosmetics
  • food or drink, poisonous, toxic or hazardous substances, tobacco

Support what we do

Although Woodside Animal Centre is proud to be part of the independent RSPCA branch network, we would like to emphasise that we are an independently funded branch that depends on the generosity of donations.

By Supporting us you could help us to rescue, rehabilitate and re-home an animal in Leicestershire today.
