Quiz Cancelled

We are sorry to inform you that our Quiz Night planned for Saturday 23rd October has been cancelled.

While we are still as dedicated as ever to raising funds to help animals in need in Suffolk, the safety of our attendees has to come first and we don’t yet feel we are at a point where it would be sensible to hold an indoor quiz.

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused and we look forward to seeing you at our Quiz Nights in 2022.

As we have had to cancel this event, if you would like to donate the cost of a quiz ticket (£8) to help our vital work it would be much appreciated.   To donate click here.



Chloe’s Yay for the Animals!

One of our wonderful young supporters Chloe Haynes had just undertaken a super challenge in aid of our branch of the RSPCA and animals in need.

Chloe, aged 12, biked 25 miles in just under 3 hours; which we think is pretty amazing.   Chloe loves cycling and wanted to help animals at the same time.

She has already smashed her £150 donation target by raising £330 but we would like to help Chloe raise even more, to say thank you to her for taking on this challenge to help local animals.

A big thank you to Chloe and well done!

Open Day cancelled

Sadly, we’ve decided to cancel our Open Day & Fun Dog show, due to take place at our Martlesham Animal Centre on 5 Sept.

Although the restrictions are being lifted, Covid-19 is still a very real and potent danger, and we did not want to take the risk of bringing Covid into the Animal Centre after all the hard work that’s gone into keeping it out.

It will mean another financial loss, as the Open Day is one of the most popular events in our calendar, but we felt the risk was just too great.

If you could make a donation to help our animals through this difficult year, we would be incredibly grateful. Our Virgin Money Giving Page is here.

Josh is training hard for his Half Marathon!

Support Josh Crewe, who is running a half marathon on 26 September 2021 to raise £1,000 to help animals in our care. The pandemic restrictions have hit our fundraising events very badly, so many thanks to Josh for helping us raise money and awareness for our animals.

Josh is still working hard to prepare for his half Marathon in aid of our branch, and although the Great East Run may be cancelled, Josh is still determined to complete the planned route on the scheduled day and has been training most mornings to get himself ready for the gruelling 13-mile tour of Ipswich! With under 3 months to go, Josh has so far raised 72% of his £1,000 target.

To support Josh during his half-marathon, and donate to our cause head over to the Just Giving page below. Every donation big or small really does help In caring for our animals at our re-homing centre, and enabling us to run our vital welfare clinic in Ipswich.

Virtual Home Pet Show launches today!

Welcome to the RSPCA Home Pet Show, our all-animal virtual pet show designed to showcase our animal friends and our special bond with them.

The show is being hosted by RSPCA HQ, and the local Branch heats will run from Monday 17 May to Monday 14 June. Just choose our Branch when you enter and 100% of your money will come directly to us, to help fund our animal welfare work and support the animals in our care.

There are six classes, plus an art category, and it is £2.50 per entry. To enter, simply visit www.rspca.org.uk/onefunday

The classes have been designed to celebrate your pet’s natural behaviours, and your special bond with them. Our pet show doesn’t focus on looks – we want to hear the stories behind the images, the personalities of the animals and the special bond between pet and owner.

12 finalists from across the RSPCA Branch network will be invited to take part in the Live Zoom Final on 19 June, hosted by RSPCA CEO Chris Sherwood and our wonderful celebrity ambassador Sophie Craig.

Please also take the time to share your entry on your own social networks to let people know about your amazing pet and help us to spread the word.
