Your Local RSPCA - Brent Knoll Animal Centre


We are now in Lockdown again!  As per government and DEFRA guidance  we remain closed to visitors and will continue with our remote rehoming system which has been very successful.

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

We 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 also have a 1 hour travel time 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. We are also unable to cross the border into Wales for rehoming purposes. Any adopters in Wales please enquire for rehoming animals from the various Animal Centres in Wales such as RSPCA Newport.

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 five 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!
