North Somerset Branch
The RSPCA North Somerset Branch is a separately registered charity from the National RSPCA and we rely primarily on support from the local community to help fund the Animal Centre.
We support our local RSPCA Inspectors by providing funds for the emergency treatment and accommodation of animals, which they consider will suffer as a result of inaction or mistreatment by the owners or where the owners have financial difficulties, suffer ill health or pass away. The Society’s Inspectorate (as well as providing education, information and advice) rescue animals in distress and enforces laws against the cruel mistreatment of animals in England and Wales by bringing prosecutions. This work is key to ‘the prevention or suppression of cruelty’ part of the RSPCA objects and promotes humane sentiments towards animals which involves moral benefit to humankind as a whole.
We provide subsidised veterinary treatment for animals, which are sick or injured and belong to local people on low incomes. We do this through a voucher scheme in association with all the veterinary practices within the Branch area. This work benefits those on means tested levels of income by giving them financial help to obtain care for companion animals in need of veterinary treatment.
We provide subsidised neutering of companion animals for those in the Branch area on low incomes. We do this through a voucher scheme in association with all the veterinary practices within the Branch area. This work helps to control dog/cat populations through neutering and benefits those on means tested level of income by giving them help to neuter companion animals, thereby promoting responsible pet ownership.
Our Animal Centre in Brent Knoll can accommodate up to 63 dogs and 44 cats, along with further accommodation for rabbits.
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 four charity shops with many dedicated volunteers helping to bring in the much needed funds to help the animals.
Throughout the year the branch hold several exciting fund raising events including pop-up shops throughout the spring and summer, Sunday Funday in September. and a Christmas Fayre. Please keep a close watch on our events page for the dates and if you can, come along and support us!
