About us image

The RSPCA Leybourne Animal Centre is located near West Malling in Kent. The centre is a short distance from junction 4 of the M20.  

The site extends to some 23 acres and ongoing maintenance work is required to keep the animal centre looking spic and span for the 15,000 visitors who come each year.

Leybourne Animal Centre was built with the support of the national RSPCA and local branches and opened in June 1996.  There are 42 kennels licensed for 57 dogs and 40 cat pens licensed for 72 cats. There is also a small animal house which caters for just about everything else! It has 16 rabbit runs 4 Ferret pens, 3 small rooms to house rodents, birds and wildlife, hutches for guinea pigs plus 2 stables and wooden arks so that fowl - and sometimes farm stock - have shelters. 

RSPCA Leybourne Animal Centre covers a huge area including Kent, Sussex, Essex and parts of Greater London too; its doors are ever open to help needy animals. We have a dedicated team of volunteers who work tirelessly to help support our animal welfare work.
