Welcome to RSPCA Preston and District
Preston Animal Centre
The RSPCA Preston & District Branch is an independent charity that is entirely self-funding and receives no Government or National RSPCA aid.
Our main aim is to take in unwanted, abandoned, neglected or abused animals and find them loving, permanent homes. Although we are affiliated to the National RSPCA, we are not funded by them and rely on public donations and the generosity of the community to keep the doors of our animal centre open.
This is never easy as the high volume of unwanted animals often far outweighs the suitable family homes needed. We pride ourselves on having a non-destruction policy and we will keep and care for our animals for as long as it takes until we can find them their forever home.
This often comes at a high financial cost to us but we will always put the animal's needs first. The entire running costs of the centre, including staff wages, veterinary treatment and medication must be met by raising funds locally.
RSPCA Preston & District Branch also has a Veterinary Clinic that provides basic treatment for anyone on certain benefits. This is an essential service for the local community and their animals. We rely heavily on volunteers who support us in many ways, by helping with the animals or volunteering at fundraising events. Every penny raised counts and we never compromise on animal welfare. Without the help of our volunteers and generous public donations, the animal centre would not be able to keep its doors open.
