Out and about with our Fundraising Stall

Many thanks to the organisers of the Martlesham Heath 100 event on 8th/9th July.  It was a brilliant two days, and we raised over £200, plus an additional £147 from our friends at Happi Days.  They kindly donated the proceeds from their agility course to us.

We also had a great time at both the Blue Cross Fun Day on 29th July and the Suffolk Dog Day on 30th July where we raised £129 and £114 respectively with our Fundraising Stall to help local animals in need.

Family Fun Day Results

What a fantastic day we had!!  We are so very grateful to everyone who came and supported our Family Fun Day last Sunday.  We raised just over an amazing £3000.  The money raised will go directly towards the care of our animals which they so desperately need and deserve.  We cannot thank you all enough.

Sorry For The Inconvenience

You may have noticed we have a new website. As our old site broke, we had to upload the new version before we could iron out all the mistakes. We’re working through them as fast as we can, and ask that you bear with us whilst we get everything sorted. All our animals available for adoption are listed on the RSPCA HQ website.

Happy Birthday to Us – three times over

2017 is going to be a big year for the Suffolk East and Ipswich Branch of the RSPCA. We’ll be celebrating our 85-year anniversary, having had our first ever meeting on 24 May 1932. Created to help animals in need in our local area, we now rehome and rehabilitate over 460 animals per year, as well as providing services such as veterinary care, neutering, microchipping and advice. We never put a healthy animal to sleep.

2017 will also see the Martlesham Animal Centre celebrate its 40th birthday, having opened in Mill Lane in September 1977. We’re hoping to replace one of our kennel blocks and our dog isolation unit, which are too cramped for larger dogs, with new, up-to-date facilities.

But the Centre is a youngster compared to our Clinic, which has been 55 years at its current site in St Georges Street, Ipswich. It opened in October 1962, having been bought for the princely sum of £1600 (old money) with a building fund raising £151.14s6d “for alteration and decoration”.
