Rehoming and Education Centre

Better facilities for animals, adopters and student vets 

An exciting few months lie ahead of Radcliffe’s well-known RSPCA animal shelter as over 2 years of planning will now come to fruition as work begins on the foundations for its new rehoming and education centre.

We must raise all our own funds for projects like this because we are separately funded from the national RSPCA and we don’t receive any government funding.If you are an individual or a business that could offer assistance or a donation to the Radcliffe Animal Centre please contact or  Alternatively, we have a GoFundMe Page setup to collect donations
Donate to the new Rehoming and Education Centre 

With the focus firmly on animal welfare, the new centre will see better facilities for those interested in animal adoption, supported by an education suite where young people and other community groups can come and learn about the valuable work of the RSPCA and this animal centre.

Nottingham evening post have published a detailed article on what the new centre will provide including interviews with our centre manager, Ella Carpenter and the deputy head of Nottingham University Vet School , Malcolm Cobb.

The animal centre also has further plans for the support of final year veterinary students helping to give the vets of the future a clearer insight into the work of animal welfare charities.

A partnership with the university that gives our centre access to highly qualified vets and provides their vet students with an insight into shelter medicine. 


Our new centre for education

Helping young people gain animal care knowledge and qualifications has always been something this animal centre feels passionately about. The more young people that understand how to meet the needs of animals will hopefully impact positively for the future.

Understanding why animals end up at an animal centre plays a major part in tackling animal welfare as a whole

Why do we need your help ?

The Radcliffe Animal Centre is a separate Trust and financially independent to that of the national RSPCA. It is a constant challenge to raise awareness that donations and legacies must be made specifically to this animal centre.

Without direct donations and kindness from local people and businesses this animal centre could not continue its valuable work. We desperately need support with these projects and to ensure funds are there to give treatment to sick and injured animals well into the future.
