New Date for Open Day

We have had to move our Open Day and Fun Dog show to Sunday 23rd September.

Our annual Open Day and Fun Dog show at the Martlesham Animal Centre has been moved to Sunday 23rd September, so that we can use the parking at the Community Centre again this year. As always, the centrepiece will be our fun dog show, celebrating all things canine, with a host of stalls, tombola and raffle, candy floss, refreshments and a BBQ. You can also see how we’re getting along with Project Winston, our £420,000+ building project for 4 new kennels, a new isolation unit and support facilities, like a new cattery sluice room.

Gates open at 11:30am, with dog show registration starting at 12noon with judging from 1pm. Many thanks to Stradbrooke-based Skinner’s for donating bags of dog food for our prize bags.

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.

Free animal welfare talks

If your group or organisation is looking for an interesting animal welfare talk, then look no further. Gill is our lovely volunteer speaker who can give an engaging talk on animal welfare and the work the Branch does for animals in our local area. The talk can be tailored to adult or child groups, on a class basis that is age appropriate or a full school assembly. The talks are free of charge, but of course we are always open to donations or monies raised via fundraising.

If you would like to book a talk, please email Gill at: education@rspca-ipswich.org.uk or call 01473 623280.

Dog Fosterers needed

We are introducing an exciting and rewarding scheme at the RSPCA Martlesham Centre; we need fosterers to help some of the dogs in our care. We are looking for understanding people who can provide a safe home and positive socialising and training. Check out more details in our Pets section of the website.
