RSPCA Middlesex North West
The Middlesex North West Branch of the RSPCA is one of over 160 Branches of the Royal Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA). We are a locally based animal welfare charity that works to prevent cruelty to and suffering of animals. Every year we rescue and rehome hundreds of neglected, stray and abandoned animals. In addition to this we assist many animals whose owners cannot afford the full costs of veterinary treatment that their animals require.
As a branch of the RSPCA we are a separately registered charity and we are responsible for raising funds locally to help animals in our area. We raise funds through a variety of events we run through the year, our seven charity shops, and through donations and legacies we receive from the public.
The trustees of the Branch have agreed that this is the right time to develop its own animal adoption centre. Once they have decided the best option we will be putting together a development plan to make it a reality. When this plan is in place the fundraising will begin to enable the Branch to make our own animal adoption centre a reality.
The Branch has been operating in North West London for over 75 years and now covers most of the London Boroughs of Brent, Harrow and Hillingdon (North of the A40), as well as Watford, Rickmansworth, Chorleywood, Bushey, Oxhey, Radlett
and St Albans in South Hertfordshire. We currently have two Animal Welfare Officers and an animal Welfare Administrator who respond to the many calls we receive each day from members of the public seeking assistance. These requests for assistance may range from arranging to take an animal in to be rehomed from someone who simply doesn’t want it any more to taking a pet to the vet for a house bound pensioner. Our Animal Welfare Officers are always willing to offer advice on the care of companion animals and if you have specific questions they are happy to discuss these with you, if they cannot answer your query they will be able to direct you to someone who can. Our Animal Welfare Officers also work closely with the RSPCA Inspectors tasked to cover the Branch area who deal with serious cases of cruelty and neglect.
All the animals taken in for rehoming are either placed with our pet fosterers or go to boarding facilities we hire while we find them a new home. In some case we may arrange for animals taken in to be transferred to regional rehoming centre if this provides the best opportunity for that animal to be rehomed quickly. If you are looking to adopt a pet you can view the pets currently looking for a new home on the pet adoption pages then just email us or phone us to discuss adopting.
