    FOR DETAILS ON HOW TO HELP LOCAL ANIMALS IN NEED TODAY!




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.

  • Clearing out the chimney for Santa!

    RSPCA swoops in to rescue owl trapped in a chimney in Llanmynech

    IT was a lucky escape for this Tawny owl after becoming stuck in a chimney.

    The bird managed to get trapped in the chimney of a log burner at a Tu Hwnt I’r Gamlas home in Arddleen, Llanmynech, Powys.

    RSPCA inspector Phil Lewis, who was called to rescue the trapped bird on Saturday [13 December], said the owl had been wedged inside the flue since Thursday and was unable to escape.

    “Fluttering was heard in the chimney and the homeowners thought it was trying to get back out of the flue but it couldn’t get out,” he said.

    “We could not get to the owl from outside so we chipped away at the fire’s cement to expose the feathers and we were then able to lift a piece of the fire to one side.

    “We put a piece of wood there to stop the bird from falling lower down and I reached in and got him.

    “I took the owl outside and although I don’t think he’d had much sleep, he was fine and flew up to some nearby trees.

    “He was a little bit dusty but he was uninjured. He had a lucky escape!”
