RSPCA Suffolk East and Ipswich Branch
Who we are
At the RSPCA Suffolk East and Ipswich Branch we take in, rehabilitate, rehome and provide veterinary treatment for hundreds of animals each year.
We are an independent and mainly self-funding branch of the RSPCA. As a separately registered charity, our work, helping animals in need in our local area, is not paid for by the national RSPCA and we receive no money from the Government or National Lottery.
In 2019 it cost us £688,397 to run our Animal Centre at Martlesham, our Veterinary Welfare Clinic in Ipswich and our veterinary voucher schemes. As well as our own fundraising, we rely heavily on the generosity and support of the local community.
At any one time, at our Animal Centre we can be looking after up to 21 dogs, 56 cats, 20 rabbits and 20 ferrets (plus their young), not to mention many other small animals, birds and wildlife. We work hard to find suitable, caring and permanent homes for all the animals brought into our care. In 2019 we rehomed 407 animals.
If you’d like to know more about what we do, animals ready for adoption, volunteering opportunities and events, please check out our branch website at www.ipswich-rspca.org.uk
Your support is very much appreciated, especially at this difficult time during the Covid -19 Pandemic, as our four charity shops have had to be closed for a number of months during the National lockdowns, and the majority of our fundraising events had to be cancelled too.
