About the Branch

The RSPCA Staffordshire North Branch has been rescuing abused and neglected animals across North Staffordshire since 1963 . We are a separately registered charity (Registered Charity Number: 225670) and as such we are responsible for raising our own funds locally. We do not receive any funding from the Government or Local Authorities.

We currently rehome close to one animal for every day of the year. Our charity costs nearly £200,000 a year to run and therefore support from our local community is critical to the success and longevity of the Branch.

The Branch is run through a committee of volunteer Trustees and we are always looking for new volunteers with professional experience in various fields that would contribute to our work and the development of our Branch.

Sadly, North Staffordshire has very high rates of animal cruelty and therefore, our main charitable objective is to rescue as many of these animals from cruelty, neglect and abandonment as possible and find them the loving care they deserve.

In addition, we are committed to promoting good, responsible pet ownership throughout the Branch area, which covers the whole of North Staffordshire, including Stoke on Trent and the Staffordshire Moorlands. We run numerous free microchipping events in the community and give talks to school assemblies spreading the word of good animal welfare.

With your help can we effect real change…
