Welcome to the RSPCA Canterbury and District Animal Centre website.

With Canterbury at its centre, the Branch serves a large part of Kent from Sittingbourne to Dover and includes Faversham, Whitstable, Herne Bay, Sandwich, Deal, and other towns and villages within the area.

We are an independent Branch of the RSPCA, licensed by the national organisation but fully responsible for raising our own funds. Our work is made possible through donations and the sale of goods in ten RSPCA shops located in Canterbury, Deal, Dover, Faversham, Herne Bay, Sittingbourne, Tankerton and Whitstable.

Working from the Canterbury and Dover Animal Centre, which opened in October 2012, the activities of the Branch principally involve providing care for, and rehoming, unwanted or neglected domestic pets. We also assist with neutering schemes and offer a micro-chipping service by appointment at the Animal Centre for dogs, cats and rabbits: currently, we have a (limited) special offer price of just £5 per animal.
