Formed in 1911, the Worcester & Mid-Worcestershire Branch (also known as RSPCA Worcester) is a separate charity in its own right. 

Covering Worcester, Malvern, Droitwich, Redditch, Bromsgrove, Rubery, Alcester, Henley-in-Arden, Pershore and surrounding districts, its main aim is to rehome animals within this area.

Branch administration is located at: 

The Holdings, Holdings Lane, Kempsey, Worcestershire WR5 3FP

Registered charity no: 205930

Our branch is affiliated to the main RSPCA, but is a separately registered charity relying primarily upon public donations. It is run by a board of trustees who ensure that all money donated goes directly to benefit the hundreds of animals who come into our care each year, many of whom have been abandoned, abused, neglected, injured or unwanted, as well as those whose owners have sadly died, or whose circumstances have changed.

As an independent Branch of the RSPCA, we are a rehoming centre for cats, dogs and small animals only. We are unable to deal with reports of neglect and cruelty; this should be done via the national RSPCA call centre by clicking the button below:


If you see one of our animals that you would like to adopt, please send us an application form to register your interest.  Application forms can be found on each page.

To find your new forever animal, please click on one of the images below, which will lead you to the animals that we currently have available for adoption. Please note that animals are constantly moving in and out of our care and, as such, the featured animals on these pages do not necessarily represent the full extent of animals in our care and available for adoption. 

We do try to update our website as regularly as possible, but sometimes the featured animals may already have been reserved.


Please use the appropriate contacts listed below or click the relevant link to fill in an online Relinquishment Request form*:

*IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note that submission of this form does not automatically guarantee acceptance of your animal(s) into our care. If you are within our catchment area, we will add your animal(s) to the relevant waiting list, but please be advised that pen space is limited, and our waiting list is extensive. We will contact you when space does become available but please also contact other rescues to see whether they can help. If you do find space elsewhere, please let us know so we can allocate your animal’s space to the next animal in need.


2023 was an extremely busy and challenging year for our Branch, in part due to the number of poorly animals coming into our care, particularly unneutered male cats with injuries which most have taken a long time to recover from. We have also taken in an unprecedented number of kittens, often sick and underweight; again these animals have been with us for a long time before being well enough to be rehomed.

We are hugely proud of all our efforts and with the help of our staff, volunteers and supporters of RSPCA Worcester and Mid-Worcestershire Branch, we...

favicon_3ico  Helped 478 animals to find a home - whether this be a new home through our adoption process or by reuniting animals with their owners, which is also a vital part of the work we do

favicon_3ico Neutered 330 animals and microchipped 335

favicon_3ico Issued 57 vouchers to people on low incomes to help them neuter, or provide veterinary treatment for their pets

We never lose sight of our non-destruction policy and feel that every animal coming into our branch deserves the very best care and treatment. The welfare of animals always has been and always will be our priority and we hope to be able to help even more in 2024. 

We can only do this with the support of our volunteers and donors. 

Thank you very much for being here for the animals.
