We are a truly local charity providing essential animal welfare services across Suffolk

The RSPCA Suffolk Central branch exists to help animals across Suffolk. Our Animal Centre in Martlesham cares for around 90 animals in need at any one time. Through our welfare clinics and financial assistance scheme we support over 3,000 people and pets annually by providing heavily subsidised veterinary treatment.

95% of everything we do is funded by support from our local community via our charity shops, fundraising efforts, donations and gifts in Wills.

Adoption & rehoming

Our Animal Centre based in Martlesham has up to 100 animals in our care at any time. Could you offer a forever home to an animal in need? Take a look at our current residents below.

Pet of the week

Draco & the girls

Draco and his pretty girls come into our care via an inspector due to no fault of theirs.

All the mice enjoy nothing more than being wild together exploring through there enrichment. They are an active bunch who are inquisitive with people, enjoy running around and digging nice deep burrows.

The lovely Fancy Mice can be hand shy but they are starting to realise human friends aren’t so bad after all. They would prefer a home where they’re not handled unless needed, with an enriching large environment that is fully enclosed.

Can you provide these 7 mice their forever home?
Please note: Draco is neutered.

You made a difference in 2023

There are many ways YOU can help raise the vital funds that we need to deliver our vital services. RSPCA Suffolk Central receives no funding from the government, all the running costs of the branch comes from generous donations, fundraising and legacies from the public and local community. But together this is what we achieved in 2023...
