Surrey Woking & District Branch
Following the UK Government announcement on Monday 23rd March 2020, sadly, we must close to the public until further notice.
This means that we cannot accept animals from the public, but we will continue to look after and care for the animals in our foster homes.
If you have animal welfare concerns, please call our national cruelty line for advice: 0300 1234 999.
Please do not attend any vet practice without calling ahead first.
This is an incredibly difficult time for us across the RSPCA, as is it is for everyone and we appreciate your ongoing support.
We are a committee of volunteers who administrate the running of the branch. Our branch also re-homes cats, rabbits and dogs from foster homes. Check our Re home a Pet section, where you will find details of the animals in our care, which are looking for homes
Please be aware we do not have a re-homing centre so have no set opening hours. Viewings are done by appointment only.

Animal welfare needs
The welfare of an animal includes its physical and mental state and we consider that good animal welfare implies both fitness and a sense of well-being. We believe that an animals welfare should be considered in terms of 'FIVE NEEDS':
1. The need for a suitable environment
2. The need for a suitable diet
3. the need to be able to exhibit normal behaviour patterns
4. The need it has to be housed with, or apart from, other animals
5. The need to be protected from pain, suffering, injury and disease.
