Welcome to the RSPCA Canterbury and District Branch website!

We are one of 166 independent local RSPCA branches, licensed by the national RSPCA and subject to its strict animal welfare standards. We cover the entire area pictured in orange from of our care and rehoming centre for cats and small rodents located in Hersden, near Canterbury.

As a separately registered charity we are largely responsible for raising our own funds through generous donations and the sale of goods in our RSPCA charity shops and we rely heavily on volunteers in order to help us care for sick, injured and unwanted animals.

You too can help us on our mission – either by rehoming or fostering an animal, volunteering in our centre or our shops or contributing financially via an online donation, a legacy or by running a fundraising campaign. We welcome all contributions, large or small!

Our friendly and professional team look forward to meeting you at either one of our charity shops, our events or at the rehoming centre very soon!
