Essex South West Branch

The main activity of the Branch is in rescuing and finding new homes for companion animals who, for a variety of reasons,  are either homeless or cannot stay with their present owner.   We cover an area ranging from Dagenham & Barking in the South to Epping & Nazeing in the North, Waltham Abbey to the West and Abridge to the East. (Our dogs and cats can be rehomed to anywhere in the UK though).

We are run entirely by volunteers and have to raise our own funds.  

Dogs:  For further details regarding adopting a dog from us or to see the dogs who are currently looking for a home, visit our webpage. 

Cats: Read our list for further details regarding adopting a cat from RSPCA Essex South West branch, or contact:  RSPCA Danaher Animal Home, Thorley Farm, Hedingham Road, Wethersfield, Essex CM7 4EQ 0300 111 4321

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we are temporarily no longer able to deal with enquiries from members of the public regarding cats. Please contact other local cat charities for help or assistance. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Join us on Facebook  and Twitter  to keep up with the latest news and to see how some of our rehomed animals are getting on!
