The RSPCA West Hatch Animal Centre occupies part of a 23-acre site that also has a Wildlife Centre.
Our Centre nestles in beautiful and quiet countryside at West Hatch, east of the county town of Taunton in Somerset. The Centre is within easy reach of the M5 at junction 25.
The Centre was originally opened in 1963, beginning with the rescue of unwanted companion animals. With the dedication of the late John Hughes, the Centre expanded to also become one of the region's leading wildlife rehabilitation facilities, culminating with the opening of the Wildlife Hospital in 1993. In 1997 the Domestic Animal Centre was rebuilt, giving us the fantastic facilities we have today.
The Centre has 42 kennels, 40 cat pens and a small animal block that can house a variety of animals, including rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, ferrets and much more.
