Bedfordshire North Branch

Your local RSPCA

Bedfordshire North Branch

The Bedfordshire North Branch of the RSPCA is a separately registered, self funded charity that depends on local support to fund its vital animal adoption and welfare work. We are run by a group of dedicated staff, volunteers and Society Trustees; raising money through fundraising events, donations, legacies and our charity shop. 

Our branch covers a large area from Bedford,Bigglewade and Sandy and the rest of North Beds, covering postcodes MK40,41,42,43,44,45 and SG15,16,17,18,19. We work with local Vets and Catteries to support the entire Branch area, seeing that animals get the treatments they need every year and are adopted to forever homes for animals of all shapes and sizes.

We are always looking for volunteers to support the charity and help meet the needs of the animals in our branch area. If you are interested in joining our team, we'd love to hear from you so please email to find out more.



After closing our doors for over four months due to Covid restrictions, we have now reopened with safety measures in place to protect our donators, shoppers, staff and volunteers. Our opening times are now Monday to Saturday 10 - 4 to allow time for cleaning before and after opening hours, and  all donations are quarantined for 48 hours before being processed for selling in the shop. 

Now, more than ever, we need your donations! Small bags or items can be donated by bringing them directly into the shop where one of our lovely team members can help you. For large or multiple bags of donations please contact the shop to arrange a day and time slot.
