How you can help animals in our care

There are lots of ways that you can help your local RSPCA

Every year thousands of animals suffer from neglect, cruelty and abuse. Together we can help end their misery.

Whether you want to give a simple donation or be a bit more hands on we're truly grateful. Take a look around to see how you can help us make a difference to animals lives.



Have you ever thought about giving up some of your time to be a Trustee of a Charity?  

Do you have business skills that could add value to a charity?

As a Trustee of a Branch, you will have the chance to influence how we care for and prevent cruelty to animals as well as using your life and business skills to support the running and development of a charity Branch.

It’s a great way to meet like-minded people who share your enthusiasm for animal welfare. You will have the opportunity to gain new skills and develop existing ones, whilst making a real difference to the lives of animals.

Most people aged 18+ are eligible to become a trustee and you will need to be/become a member of the RSPCA.  This is a voluntary position.

In common with all RSPCA Branches, the North Essex Branch is committed to preventing cruelty and promoting kindness to animals.  The Branch is governed by a voluntary Board of Trustees who through a Branch Manager are responsible for retail units in Colchester, Frinton and Braintree and a busy Animal Clinic in Colchester which provides veterinary services to low income pet owners.    

The Branch has recently gone through many positive changes and we are now looking for more Trustees to join us and continue the development of the Branch.   In particular we would love to hear from you if you have interests in Retail, Animal Welfare, Treasury, Marketing, PR, Fundraising or Company Secretary.  

Send your CV to or email for more information.

Volunteer Driver

We are currently looking for a volunteer driver to collect and move around stock from our             shops and partner branches, Colchester, Braintree, Frinton & Bury St Edmunds.

This would possibly be a day Monday- Friday every 2 weeks.  If you have a current driving license and are happy to drive a van.  Please  contact our Frinton shop for a volunteer form on 01255 674926.

Shop for a better life for animals

When you shop via us on the RSPCA Online Shop, you're helping to support our work. So whether you're buying a dog bed or a cat bowl you know that the purchase you make will help benefit animal welfare in your local area.

Fundraising fun

There are loads of ways to raise money for the RSPCA! If you're a daredevil you could do a skydive or if you prefer to keep your feet on the ground you could take part in a run. Take a look at our fundraising ideas to get you started.

Campaign for better animal welfare

Adding your voice to RSPCA campaigns will help us to achieve better animal welfare in the future. Our campaigns aim to prompt political and behavioural change on a range of animal welfare-related issues. But, we can¿t do it alone. Campaign for animal welfare.
