Your Local RSPCA - Brent Knoll Animal Centre

** 16.11.20 - Due to a local incident with a BT box we are without internet and phonelines, We are working hard to resolve this but please bare with us whilst we do. We appologise for any incovenience caused.**


As per government and DEFRA guidance as of today we will be closed to visitors once again and will revert back to our remote rehoming system which was very successful during Lockdown 1, many systems of which we had carried on with! 

Our phone line at RSPCA Brent Knoll Animal Centre will still be answered between 11am and 1pm DAILY - 01278 782671.

We will continue food/litter sales - to enquire about either of these please where possible continue to email us at or message us directly on Facebook (RSPCA North Somerset Branch). We can then take payment and arrange a time for you to collect from our main gates.

We have been pleased to be able to rehome animals through lockdown using our new adapted process and we will continue to do so. Please click on the link and carefully read the current adoption process. The animals featured on our website are the only ones we are currently looking to find homes for. This is a very different system and will need a careful and detailed approach.

We will be once again delivering animals to their new homes. This means the 1 hour travel time is back in place. Before you enquire about one of our animals please check your travel distance to us (postcode TA9 4BL) we are unable to make any exceptions.

If you have animal welfare concerns, please call our national cruelty line for advice: 0300 1234 999. If you have a badly injured stray or wild animal please call your local vet for advice. Please do not attend a vet practice without calling first.

This is an incredibly difficult time for us across the RSPCA and we appreciate your ongoing support. We thank you for your co-operation and hope that you all remain safe and well.

North Somerset Branch

We are a branch of the RSPCA raising money locally to support our animal welfare work.  
Our branch is run by a committee of locally elected volunteers who are responsible for the management and administration of the branch's affairs.

The North Somerset Branch covers from Nailsea down to Woolavington and across to Wells. Within our branch area we have 6 charity shops with many dedicated volunteers helping to bring in the much needed funds to help the animals. Our welfare centre on Locking Road in Weston-Super-Mare has been the branch offices, established as long ago as 1969, and to this very day continues with veterinary financial assistance. It is only since 2006 that we have had our own Animal Centre at Brent Knoll.

Throughout the year the branch hold several exciting fund raising events including a sponsored dog walk, an open day at the animal centre and our annual dog show on the Beach Lawns in Weston-Super-Mare. Please keep a close watch on our events page for the dates and if you can, come along and support us!
