Read on and learn more about the RSPCA!
The RSPCA has been around for more than 180 years. The main purpose of the Society is to prevent cruelty and promote kindness to all animals. There are lots of different ways that we do this.
Inspectors, animal collection officers and vets
These are the people you probably most associate with the RSPCA. They protect animals around the country by investigating complaints, taking them away from harmful situations and trying to make them better if they are unwell.
Branches and animal centres
The RSPCA has branches and animal centres across the country. They fundraise locally and look after unwanted or distressed animals and rehome pets in their area. The RSPCA also has a small number of hospitals and clinics.
Campaigning and researching
At our head office we have teams of people dedicated to campaigning about important issues, like fur, scientists who provide reliable information about animal welfare, and an education department who help teachers and pupils to learn more about important animal issues.
Fundraising and international
We also have a fundraising department which helps to raise much needed funds for the society and an international team that provide advice and assistance to other countries around the world.
On the next couple of pages read about the sorts of jobs you can get working at the RSPCA and find out how you can help us fundraise.
