RSPCA West Dorset Branch is a separate charity affiliated to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).  We cover the towns of Dorchester, Bridport, Weymouth, Portland, Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Sherborne and Axminster (Devon) as well as all the surrounding villages and hamlets.  Our main priorities are the welfare and rehoming of local animals.  We raise our funds within the Branch boundaries and all money raised is spent within the area.  We are responsible for "Taylors Animal Rehoming Centre" at Kingston Maurward, Dorchester.
 

If you wish to report an Animal Emergency or have concerns regarding the welfare of an animal please telephone 0300 1234 999.  Please also call this number if you need to have an unowned or wild animal collected by an RSPCA Animal Collection Officer. 

PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL US REGARDING EMERGENCIES OR CRUELTY AS THIS IS NOT THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY OF DEALING WITH SUCH MATTERS.  CALL 0300 1234 999 AND REPORT THE MATTER TO THE RSPCA NATIONAL CALL CENTRE.  THANK YOU.

Can you offer an animal a new home?  

                                      

RSPCA West Dorset Branch takes in cats, rabbits, rats, ferrets, chinchillas, mice, degus and other small animals which need to find new homes.  Our animals are kept at our Branch Animal Centre, Taylor's Animal Rehoming Centre.

Please note that ALL potential new owners will be home-checked and there is a set fee for rehoming an animal.  Our animals will all be neutered, wormed and inoculated before they leave our care.  Kittens  will be issued with a neutering voucher if they are too young to undergo the operation before rehoming.  After a few months there will be a follow up check to ensure that that animal has settled happily in to its new home.  For full details of the adoption process, please click here.


Would you like to Sponsor a Pen at Taylors?

Taylor’s Animal Rehoming Centre, the RSPCA West Dorset Branch animal home at Kingston Maurward College, Dorchester, comprises of 20 purpose built cat pens, an isolation block and a small animal unit.

You can ‘Sponsor’ a cat pen, cage or hutch by way of a ‘one-off’ donation or a yearly payment, from as little as £25.

All Sponsors will be recognised by way of a personalised plaque. 

For companies, this represents a valuable advertising opportunity.  We also offer further free advertising on this website which currently has up to 5000 ‘hits’ a month, and in our regular newsletters which are distributed to supporters in the area.  When you sign up for Sponsorship you we will contact you in this regard, but if you would like to discuss the matter before hand, please do not hesitate to contact us.

For individuals, this is a wonderful way of showing your support for the Centre, and you and your friends will of course be able to visit Taylor’s to see ‘your plaque’ on the pen, cage or hutch!
