Your Local RSPCA - Brent Knoll Animal Centre


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. We are working to a reduced team of staff so please do bare with us. This is a very different system and will need a careful and detailed approach.

**As of 21st July 2020 we are now able to allow collections of animals on site at Brent Knoll Animal Centre on their adoption day. Up until now we have been delivering animals to their new homes. This means we are no longer restricted to a 1 hour travel time however for rabbits and small animals we still prefer to rehome locally to reduce travel stress for them.

We are still CLOSED to visiting public. This means that we cannot accept animals from the public, and are looking after existing animals in our care, and new animals brought in via our animal rescue teams. 

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!

 For all ANIMAL ADOPTION enquiries please TELEPHONE the Brent Knoll Animal Centre on 01278 782671 during opening hours. 

Our cats, dogs & ferrets are cared for and can be viewed during the opening hours at the Brent Knoll Animal Centre. If you are coming in to see a particular animal please call before travelling to us on 01278 782671 to check they are still available for adoption to avoid disappointement. 

Our rabbits, guinea pigs and small animals are mostly cared for in foster homes. Please call the Brent Knoll Animal Centre to register your interest in a fostered animal and we can make arrangements for you to meet at a convenient time for yourself and the fosterer, thank you.  For the comfort and welfare of our small animals that are generally prone to experiencing  stress during travel we look to home them fairly locally to our Centre.
