Helping Paws – for Winston

Buy one of our lovely paws plaques and help us complete Project Winston, the replacement of six of the Animal Centre’s oldest dog kennels with up-to-date facilities.

We have three types of lovely paws plaques available.

Solid brass 4” paw – minimum donation £250
4″ blue acrylic paw – £50 minimum donation
£25 minimum donation for the 2″ blue acrylic paw plaque

In celebration or in loving memory, each plaque can be engraved with a short message of your choice.

The plaques will be put on permanent display in a public area at our Animal Centre in Martlesham.

We are a separately registered charity from the national RSPCA and our Trustees are all unpaid volunteers. Our animal welfare work is not paid for by the national RSPCA and in 2017 over 95% of our income came from our own fundraising efforts, donations and legacies. Project Winston will allow the wonderful staff and volunteers at our RSPCA Animal Centre to continue their work in rehabilitating and rehoming all sorts of animals, especially dogs, from the local area.

For details of how to buy a paw of your own, please click here. Or visit the Project Winston stand at our upcoming Open Day (Sun 23 Sept).

Appointments needed during building works

During Project Winston, from 28th May until 29th October 2018 inclusive, if you would like to visit the Centre to view or discuss any of our animals available for adoption, you’ll need to make an appointment. This is to allow staff and builders enough space to work.

If you would like to leave donations or visit the animal centre shop, there is no need to make an appointment; just visit during our normal opening hours. Our charity shops – at Hamilton Road, Felixstowe and Tacket Street and Reynolds Road in Ipswich, will also be delighted to receive donations.

Please call the Centre on 0300 999 7321 to book an appointment to see our animals.
