How we help our local community

How we help:

We offer financial assistance to help local animals most in need in our branch area via our veterinary voucher scheme. To see if you can get help with your veterinary bills from us, you will need to call our welfare line. This line is answered by volunteers, please be patient, if you cannot get a reply immediately you may need to try again later. The WELFARE LINE number to call is 07791 759 813.

We also promote responsible pet ownership through neutering and microchipping.

In 2015:

We issued 328 veterinary vouchers to help local animals.

678 animals were seen by vets. 240 animals were neutered.

We took 67 local cats and dogs into branch care prior to rehoming and new homes were found for 59 animals.

We helped with the health and neutering of 165 stray dogs.

£150,000 has been invested into a new cattery project Brent Knoll Animal Centre which is run by our neighbours, North Somerset Branch.

We contributed £25,000 to the Wildlife Centre at RSPCA West Hatch to help them look after thousands of injured and abondoned wild animals and hundreds of oiled seabirds.

We supported our local RSPCA Inspectors with equipment and financial aid to help them continue to rescue local animals from dreadful situations.

We support RSPCA PetRetreat in our area, offering temporary foster homes for cats and dogs belonging to families fleeing from domestic abuse. To find out more call PetRetreat on 0300 123 8278.
