RSPCA Cardiff & District Branch


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.

    COMPLETE TRANSFORMATION FOR DOG FOUND WITH A SEVERE SKIN CONDITION

    A dog found covered in sores, suffering with a severe skin condition and bleeding has had a complete transformation in RSPCA care.

    Zeus, a Dogue de Bordeaux, was found straying in the Newport area in a horrific state of health.

    But following a lot of love and care - Zeus has come on leaps and bounds at RSPCA Newport Animal Centre and his life has been completely turned around. His health has dramatically improved by putting on weight and his skin condition has improved considerably.

    Kennel and cattery supervisor Samantha Richmond said: “Zeus was very thin and had extremely bad skin infection when he was found. He was also nervous and found it hard to trust people.”

    But following medication and regular veterinary examinations, Zeus - who is approximately aged two - is on the mend.

    “He is just wonderful and is starting to show a lovely character,” she said.

    “He still has problems with his skin, and his condition can flare up under stress. It will be something he will always have to live with. So a new owner will be taking that on.

    “At the moment he is just on two medicated baths a week - which is down from four a week. He is still on medication for his skin, has eye drops and is having regular check ups with the vet.”

    Animal care assistant Rachel O’Hagan said: “He is such a lovely boy. We have all fallen in love with him.

    “He arrived in such a bad condition, but he has come on leaps and bounds. He didn’t know how to play in the beginning, so we have had to teach him.

    “Zeus will make a lovely family pet and will be so loyal. He has been through an awful lot.

    “He loves human company and always wants to be near you. He loves playing with toys, so if anyone wishes to donate any large ones, he will be delighted.”

    XXZeus isn’t quite ready for rehoming, but it is hoped in the near future he will be ready to find his forever home and a loving owner who will give him all the love and attention he truly deserves.
