Welcome to your local RSPCA Branch

Norwich & Mid-Norfolk

We are a financially independent charity which means all money raised in Norfolk, stays in Norfolk. 

Did you know... Our branch NEVER puts an animal to sleep, unless we have been strongly advised to by our animal behaviourist and/or vets.  To find our more about the local branch and the work we do please visit our "About Us" page!





If you have an emergency or you need to report cruelty you must call the National RSPCA Cruelty Helpline on 0300 1234 999 and they will be able to assist you.

Our Opening Times

Our Adoption Centre is open Tuesday to Saturday 11am to 4pm.  

We operate on an appointment basis only so if you are interested in adopting one of our animals please call us on 0303 040 1565 or you can visit our "Adopt a Cat" or "Adopt a Dog" page and fill in an enquiry form and our Animal Care team will get back to you to arrange an appointment!

Are you free?

We have a weekend collection coming up on Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th of July at Pets At Home Longwater Costesssy. If you could spare a few hours to collect on either day we would really appreciate it! Times that we have left are 10.30 - 12.30, 12.30 - 2.30 or 2.30 - 4.30.


Please email us at sophie.alderton@rspcanorwich.org if you can spare some time to help raise much needed funds for local animals who are currently in our care! Thanks!

Support the ban on fox hunting

The UK Government has revealed its cynical plans to deliver on its manifesto commitment to allow a free vote on whether to repeal the Hunting Act. A 90 minute debate and ‘free vote’ is due to take place in the House of Commons on Wednesday 15 July.

This is a tactical ‘amendment’ to the Hunting Act 2004, which could be in addition to the promised free vote. It would weaken the Act to such an extent that it would become extremely difficult to enforce on illegal hunting with dogs.

This amendment would be disastrous for our wildlife. It would allow those who engage in the cruel ‘sport’ of hunting, where wild animals are chased to the point of exhaustion, before being brought down and ripped apart by packs of dogs, with the opportunity to escape the consequences. In many respects it's the first step at dismantling the the Act and the protection it provides for wildlife.

We cannot allow such a vital piece of wildlife protection law to be lost

While this amendment is being tabled under the guise of ‘pest control’ the real reason is clear, and in the Prime Minister's own words “I have always been a strong supporter of country sports. It is my firm belief that people should have the freedom to hunt”.

We and more than 80 per cent of the British public disagree however, nobody has the right to be cruel to an animal in the name of ‘sport’, ‘pest control’ or otherwise.

Take action today

We only have a week to stop this. A weakening of animal protection law anywhere, is a threat to animals everywhere.

Happy Endings

We just love receiving letters and photos from animals that used to be in our care - telling us how much they love their new homes...  
Breaking news ~ The wonderful Ellie has just said all of her goodbyes and has been whisked off to her new home.

One of our volunteers spotted Ellie the week she came in and just fell in love with 
her, and knew then that she could offer her a happy ending!  She is still on ongoing medical treatment which will be life long for Ellie. She is a completely different dog compared to the dog she was when she entered our care.

We would like to thank each and every one of you that donated towards Ellie's treatment, shared the link, spread the word of her justgiving page and supported us!  Big hugs, licks and wags also passed on from Ellie x
To read Ellie's story visit our Before and After page to see her and other animals that have been helped by your local RSPCA branch!
