RSPCA Cardiff & District Branch

Registered Charity Number 232228

  • alt

The RSPCA Cardiff & District Branch has been in existence for well over a century!

Throughout this time we have continued to help local animals in need.

We no longer have an animal centre in Cardiff, however, we continue to rehome hundreds of unwanted or cruelty case animals, using private boarding establishments and via our team of dedicated fosterers.

Via our Welfare Assistance Project, we issue vouchers enabling pet owners (on low income and in receipt of benefits) with emergency vet bills.  And we help towards the cost of neutering and microchipping

We often organise animal ‘Community Care’ events, where we offer help and guidance on many animal issues.  We support our local RSPCA Inspectors in whatever way we can, as well as assisting our nearest RSPCA Animal Centres in Newport and Swansea, also the RSPCA Clinic at Merthyr Tydfil.

As you can see, RSPCA Cardiff & District is extremely active - but none of this would be possible without the help of our supporters.  

Branches of the RSPCA are separately registered charities, responsible for raising funds locally.

Therefore, our work helping LOCAL animals in need depends on the generosity of our supporters and the funds we raise locally.


We hope you enjoy browsing  our website to see some of the work we do locally.

Discover how you can help us ….. become a volunteer …… or fundraise for us …… make a donation …. or even remember us in your will.




We are committed to the prevention of cruelty to animals, and we will reduce animal suffering wherever possible. Our work is aimed at increasing animal care and well being. We will promote kindness to animals in every way we can.

    This year's RSPCA WEEK is 1-7 June.  Can you help raise funds for the Branch during that week?

    Here are just a few ideas on how you and friends/colleagues can help raise the money we need to help local animals in need:

    Fundraise at work with cake bakes, dressing down/up days or 'empty your pockets' collections!  

    Fundraise at school/college with an Art Attack competition, creating a piece of animal-themed artwork - or organise a fashion show - or a battle of the bands contest - or even a fancy dress day (teachers can join in too!)

    Fundraise at home with coffee mornings, home made jam sales or babysitting.  

    Fundraise with friends at a pub quiz or karaoke night - or organise a speed dating night!

    The funds you raise will help local animals in need - and you'll have lots of fun in the process!

    For the more adventurous, why not sign up for the opportunity of a lifetime?  You can SKYDIVE for free if you raise funds for the Branch.  Contact us for details!

    If you have any new and original ideas, please share! 

    As many will know, Branches are independent self-funding charities.  We receive no direct financial support from the National Society of the RSPCA and no Government Funding.  Our work depends entirely upon the funds we raise. 

    Would you like to help?  It's time to start planning!

    Please let us know if you need any sponsorship forms or posters etc when organising your event.  And we can help promote it on our website & Facebook of course!

    If fundraising isn’t for you, please remember that you can make a donation by text. 

    To donate £5, text:

    On behalf of the animals we help – thank you!
