What We Do

About RSPCA South East Somerset

This independent branch was started in 1974. It covers an area encompassing Henstridge, Yeovil, Crewkerne, Langport, Somerton, Street, Glastonbury, Shepton Mallet and Wincanton including Castle Cary and other towns and villages within that perimeter.

We do not have an animal centre but use fosterers and our own small cattery for a small number of animals before getting them ready, neutering and vaccinating and re-homing through a private boarding establishment

We run occasional drop in days for the travelling and Gypsy communities. We even do doorstep care for the more house bound or other animals in need. We give financial support to animals identified by the Inspectorate and our volunteers.

We undertake contributions toward veterinary care for animals in need and ensure animals brought to our attention do not suffer but are offered the best possible chance for the future.

We undertake trapping, health checks and neutering for feral colonies of cats whenever we have trained volunteers for this.

We support our main Society by helping to promote the aims through education, campaigning and all other positive animal welfare.

Vet Assistance

For people within our area on low incomes identified by being in receipt of job seekers allowance, pension credit or housing benefit.

We can offer support towards a consultation at your vet, neutering and emergency care.

For help in an emergency or treatment we must be notified of the need for financial help within 48 hours otherwise we cannot help. Contact your vet initially or phone 07971 175491 for more information.

We are also able to listen if you want or need someone to talk over your concerns relating to your animal companion. Sometimes difficult decisions are better having voiced your worries into words to an outsider.
