We are an RSPCA branch covering Central, West and North-East London. We take in, shelter and find homes for abandoned or maltreated animals in our area, and offer help and advice to local people concerned about the welfare of animals. Our volunteers manage five RSPCA fundraising shops.

We are in desperate need of cat and kitten foster carers, particularly in North London

Fostering is a rewarding experience and you will be directly helping us to rescue more cats in urgent need. Under our emergency fostering scheme, we provide equipment, 10 days worth of food and litter and an arrangement regarding any necessary vet treatment whilst the cat is in your care.

If you would be interested in becoming a short-term emergency foster carer for the RSPCA, please get in touch with us on 07710 294 180 or by completing our online fostering form.

Help spread the world about free neutering

Pet owners assume that neutering their cat will be expensive – unaffordable, even – but as a result, there are thousands of unwanted, neglected and stray cats in London.

The C4 Scheme, established in 2002 as a joint initiative by major animal charities, offers free neutering for cats whose owners live within the M25 area and receive certain state benefits, are on a low income or are students. The scheme also covers stray cats being temporarily fed.
