About us

We're the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) and we've been here for animals since 1824. We're the world's oldest and largest animal welfare charity, with the primary focus of rescuing, rehabilitating and rehoming or releasing animals across England and Wales.

National rehabilitation, rehoming and wildlife centres

Our animal and equine rehoming centres (including those inside Pets at Home stores) and four wildlife centres primarily take in animals brought to them via our animal rescuers. When resources allow, they'll also take in animals from the public. It's always best to check who to contact and what to do when you find an injured wild animal, as some may require specialists.With many of our animals having complex behavioural needs we also have a team of clinical animal behaviourists who provide expert support to help our animals find forever homes.
