About us

Our Central London RSPCA branch operates as a separate charity to the main RSPCA. The charity is led by volunteers, with permanent, temporary and volunteer staff manning the adoption centres and charity shops. While we get some help from the main RSPCA, we are responsible for raising funds to pay for the work that we do.

Each year we help over 1850 animals – including cats, dogs, rabbits, small furries and occasionally less common animals like birds, ferrets, terrapins and tortoises.

We are really proud of our achievements but we are full to bursting with desperate animals needing homes. We are especially looking for homes for adult cats who will be re-homed neutered, micro-chipped, vaccinated and treated for parasites.

Our branch supports the RSPCA mission

The RSPCA as a charity will, by all lawful means, prevent cruelty, promote kindness to and alleviate suffering of all animals.

We also support all RSPCA campaigns.
