Happy Quizzers!

We had a great time at our Branch Quiz in Martlesham on 10th November.

83 players (17 teams) took part and the winning team “I Said That” scored an amazing 111 out of 130 – well done to them.

The baked potato supper went down well on a chilly wet evening and, most importantly of all, we raised £761 for the Branch.

Thank you to everyone who came along and helped make the event a success.

Keep an eye out for our Quiz dates for next year!

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.

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.
