RSPCA - Kent: Ashford, Tenterden & District Branch

We are commited to preventing cruelty and promoting kindness to all animals. Ever since it was set up, this Branch of the RSPCA has been an important part of Ashford life, having its Branch building in the town centre of Ashford built in 1964 from funds donated by The RSPCA Supporters Association. This Branch is dedicated to helping every kind of animal, domestic or wild, that may be in danger. Domestic animals, particularly dogs and cats were, until recently, looked after by local private kennels and catteries willing to help with the care of rescued animals. In 2006 a wonderful new Cat Rehoming Centre was completed and to date 756 cats have come into our care and over 650 have been rehomed. It has been amazingly successful or amazingly sad, depending on which way you look at it. What would of happened to the 756 cats before we opened?

We realise we are one of hundreds of tiny shelters around the UK all needing funds to keep afloat. We may be small, but we need big money to keep us going. Most of the cats that we help have been abused, neglected and just plain unwanted. They are quite often in very bad health and it takes lots of vet treatment to get them back on their feet to find new homes.
