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.
