Reports and accounts

Each year the Trustees' report and accounts shows what our objectives are and the actions we take to meet them. It outlines our activities and the benefits these bring, not just to animal welfare, but also for society in general.

We launched Generation Kind our first integrated prevention programme, to help improve the understanding of the needs of animals - particularly amongst young people - and embed animal welfare in the education system.

Influencing legislative change

As we prepare for Brexit, we've worked with governments to ensure animal welfare standards are kept at the same level, or higher.

With your help, we've achieved legislative improvements on CCTV in slaughterhouses, ensured animal welfare was improved in respect of how we buy and sell animals, and ensured animal welfare is at the centre of the biggest shake-up in legislation and changes to how we farm since 1947.

What Brexit means for animal welfare and how you can help.

RSPCA Avoid a cat-astrophe

Tackling the cat crisis

We receive 18 calls about cats in need of help every hour. We're facing a cat overpopulation crisis. So, in 2018 we continued our campaign focussing on encouraging cat owners to neuter there cats in a timely manner.

Spread the word and help us avoid a cat-astrophe

Improving the welfare of dogs

Research suggests that 8 out of 10 dogs find it hard to cope when left alone. So in 2018 we launched a new campaign to improve public understanding of the needs of dogs.
