At RSPCA Brighton we are passionate about pets whatever size and shape they come in.

From the mastiffs to the chihuahuas, from the tabbies to the tarantulas and from the rabbits to the rodents.

Our team of dedicated animal welfare staff rescue, rehabilitate and rehome more than 600 animals a year from our shelter in Patcham.

This year alone the centre has taken in 19 cats and kittens from one house, 12 terriers from another home, dogs that have lost their sight because their eye problems weren’t treated and 138 leopard geckos from a warehouse, in addition to the animals that routinely come in needing help. Many of the animals in the branch have more complex problems than ever before meaning they need even more support to find their forever homes

In addition to the more conventional pets, RSPCA Brighton’s Reptile Rescue is an unique facility that takes in neglected and unwanted reptiles from across the RSPCA with a team of reptile experts that search for the right homes for the creatures in our care.

The reptiles can range from cockroaches and corn snakes to Royal Pythons and Monitor Lizards. Each one gets help to find the right environment to give them healthy life.

As a separately registered branch of the RSPCA we raise our own money to help local animals. This means we rely on our supporters’ generosity and work hard to make sure that ever penny counts.
