Despite 200 years of amazing RSPCA work, cruelty, pain and suffering continues and so our work goes on.

We need to raise £5,000 to enable us to continue caring for animals rescued in our area.

Our Branch covers about half the county of Essex from the Suffolk border down to Brentwood & Billericay. We fund the boarding of all the animals picked up in our area. During their stay with us they have their veterinary needs attended to, including vaccinations, microchipping and neutering. They also have an assessment before they find their new forever loving home, so that we can ensure they find their perfect happily ever after. And, of course, they receive lots of love and cuddles!

All this wonderful work comes at an ever increasing cost. Last year we paid for 56 dogs and 151 cats at a cost of £57,000. That’s about £275 per animal, with each of them staying about a month in boarding. This year we need to find an additional £5,000 to help the same number of animals as we helped last year.

Please take a look at our Crowdfunder page for more information and details of how you can help the animals in our area. We need your donations now, more than ever! Care to support us?
