West Hatch Animal Centre

 


Here at West Hatch Animal Centre, most of our animals have been rescued from neglect and bad treatment by their previous owners. We look after dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, and many other types of small domestic animals - at any one time we could be caring for over 150 animals.

We spend weeks, sometimes months, rehabilitating them and preparing them for a new life and a second chance.

In 2012 we rehomed 132 dogs and 205 cats. Our small animal block rehomed 353 animals. That is a total of 690 animals in one year!

It costs the RSPCA over £750 a day to run West Hatch Animal Centre. The RSPCA relies entirely on kind donations from people like you.

West Hatch Domestic Centre now take in animals from the RSPCA Inspectors only.  The demand for spaces for the animals they bring to us is ever increasing and we are no longer able to accept unwanted pets or stray animals from members of the public.  We are able to provide information on centres that can re-home animals for the public on request.
