How we help animals on the island
RSPCA STAFF CLAP FOR CARERS - thank you all carers and essential workers.
What we do
RSPCA Isle of Wight branch provides support for our Island’s most vulnerable animals at our animal centre in Godshill.
Our dedicated team of staff and volunteers provides daily care and welfare for domestic, farm and wild animals. We re-unite lost animals with their concerned owners and find new, loving homes for every healthy adoptable animal. We also rehabilitate and release those wild animals which will survive in the wild.
Our branch is an independently registered Island-based charity and we rely solely on the generosity of our local community to deliver our critical animal care. We support the RSPCA Inspectorate team to support those animals most in need.
Our opening times are Tuesday-Sunday 11am-4pm, with last viewings 3.30pm. We are closed to the public on Mondays and Bank holidays, although our welfare work never stops!
Our branch also has six charity shops across the Island and these generate crucial funds which enable us to carry out our animal welfare work.
These shops are based in:
- Newport (11b Lower St James St, Newport PO30 5HE);
- Ryde (45-48 High Street, Ryde PO33 2RE);
- Ventnor (33-35 High Street, Ventnor PO38 1RZ);
- Cowes (12 Birmingham Road, Cowes PO31 7BH);
- Sandown (4a High Street, Sandown PO36 8DA);
- Freshwater (7 Avenue Road, Freshwater PO40 9UU).
