How we help local animals
Who we are
Bristol A.R.C. has been caring for the city’s pets and wildlife since 1887, helping, healing and homing over 14,000 vulnerable animals each year. We are the longest-standing and largest local animal charity, and although we are proud to be affiliated with the RSPCA, we receive no automatic funding from it. We rely entirely on local support within the community to fund our vital work.
Bristol A.R.C. is the working name of RSPCA Bristol and Bristol Dogs and Cats Home. Our name may have changed, but we continue to provide the best quality care to the sick, injured and neglected animals of Bristol.
