  • Mission statement

    The Bristol & District Branch of the RSPCA is committed to preventing cruelty and promoting kindness to animals. We aim to reduce animal suffering & increase animal well-being as much as possible through our activities.

    Our Bristol Dogs and Cats Home provides shelter and a re-homing service for stray, abandoned and unwanted companion animals. As well as dogs and cats, the Home rescues rabbits, ferrets, and all other small domestic mammals & birds - we work tirelessly to give these animals the new life they deserve in a caring home, free from pain and neglect.

    Our RSPCA Clinic provides vital and often life-saving veterinary treatment for straying, neglected, abused and rescued animals, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We also provide subsidised veterinary treatment for pets whose owners are on a low income and a first aid centre for wildlife casualties.

    Education – informing people about animal welfare is fundamental to our aims. We constantly endeavour to increase public understanding and awareness of responsible pet ownership and other welfare issues. In particular, we promote neutering as the cornerstone to reducing the problem of unwanted pets.

    Supporting the work of the National RSPCA – we work closely with our local RSPCA Inspectors to rescue and rehabilitate animals that have suffered cruelty or neglect, and we support a wide range of National RSPCA campaigns that aim to reduce the harmful impact of human activities on animals.
