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


Tikka came into the centre after being found as a stray.

When first at the cattery, Tikka was quite ‘spicy’ and defensive when it came to people being near her but since getting to know the team, her behaviour has really improved.

Tikka does still have her moments of cattitude but can also be very sweet and loving once she knows you. Because of this, Tikka is looking for someone with a bit of experience with owning a cat who would be able to read her body language as to whether she would like your attention or not.

Does this bundle of character sound like the right cat for you?

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...
