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

Master Wu and Sadie

Sadie and Master Wu have been returned to our care due to a change in circumstances in their previous home.

This lovely duo were bonded by us back in 2021, and found their loving home not long after, so it’s been quite a shock for them coming back.

Master Wu is the more confident of the bunnies, and offers his bunny-love Sadie lots of reassurance with head nudges and grooming sessions. They both love their food and hand feeding has been a great way for us to bond with them.

Sadie and Master Wu are ideally looking for an indoor home where they can live in a carpeted area as this is what they are used to, and where they are most comfortable, however a suitable outdoor accommodation would be considered.

As husbun and wifey, they must stay together and aren’t looking to join any other Rabbits. Experience with Rabbits is desirable but not essential, as Master Wu is getting an older boy and all Rabbits need specialist care, but more so in their senior years.

If you’re looking to share your veggies with two wonderful house pets who will brighten your days, we’d love to hear from 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...
