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

Elsa, a dark tortoiseshell cat with beautiful markings, is curled up on a blanket. She is is waiting to find her forever home.


Elsa came into the centre as her previous owners sadly passed away and has been lucky to find a foster home, where she really has her paws under the table! Elsa loves being around her human companions and can often usually be found in the living room watching telly right by her humans side – that way she can get all the fuss she can.

Unfortunately, with age, Elsa has developed some ailments which need on going treatment. Elsa has hyperthyroidism, arthritis, high blood pressure and kidney disease. All these problems are being managed with medication and diet which can be obtained from the centre with help with funding from the branch.

But Elsa enjoys life and deserves a permanent retirement home that she can call her own so please contact the centre if you have any questions regarding adopting Queen Elsa!

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...
