RSPCA Lancashire East Branch has an Animal Centre located at Altham, near Accrington. We rehome Dogs, Cats, Rabbits, Ferrets and some small animals.  The Animal Centre has a capacity to hold 42 dogs, 46 cats, 20 rabbits and 12 ferrets. Due to the large number of animals that need to be admitted we operate on a “waiting list” system for most of the year.

The majority of our animals are brought in by our inspectors or animal welfare officers, but we also take in animals from the general public when we have space and an animal’s welfare is at risk.

The Branch is one of over 160 RSPCA Branches in England and Wales that are separately registered charities, which operate independently from the National Society, whilst working within the framework of the National Society.

The Lancashire East Branch of the RSPCA was started in the early seventies. The Branch is governed by a Branch Committee which consists of voluntary Trustees, who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the branch.

Our organisation could not survive without our army of committed and enthusiastic volunteers who provide thousands of hours of their time for free each year to help the animals in our care.  We have a wide range of activities and opportunities where you can help us to provide the best possible care that we can offer.

Apart from the obvious benefits to the animals, there is also a tremendous amount of benefit for you in volunteering. Anybody who wants to experience new things, meet new people, learn more about animals and feel like part of a strong team would get a great deal of satisfaction volunteering with the RSPCA Lancashire East Branch.
