Lost and straying animals

Every day there are lots of lost and straying animals on the streets of Bristol. Many of them arrive at our doors, often ill or injured after being brought in by a kind member of the public, the Dog Warden, RSPCA Inspectors or the Police. We are always here to help.

Every animal, from dogs and cats to bunnies, ferrets and chinchillas receive the treatment they need so that they are well enough to either be reunited with their owner or begin the search for a new home at our Rehoming Centre.

When lost or straying pets come into our care we always scan them to see if they are microchipped with the aim of hopefully reuniting them with their owners.

Our veterinary team provides treatments for any illness or injury that a pet may have, this ranges from simple flea treatments and routine checks to intensive care support if for example, they have been in a road traffic accident.

Caring for injured and lost animals

As a charity we rely on the generosity of our local community to fund our vital work, this includes donations that owners, who are claiming their animals, are able to make to us. These donations help to cover some or all of the cost of their pet’s treatment whilst in our care.

If we have taken in your pet, we will explain any veterinary care that your pet has received and the cost of that treatment. We appreciate it if you can make a contribution towards the cost, and are always very grateful if you can cover the entire cost, as this helps towards the running of our services for stray animals in Bristol.

You can make a donation here and we’re grateful for every gift, big or small.
