If your pet needs to see a vet, the Branch also runs a Veterinary Welfare Clinic. You need to live in our Branch area and be on eligible benefits. To keep our Clinic running, we ask for a donation towards the cost of the vet’s consultation and any medication given. Treatment such as x-rays and operations (except for neutering) cannot be paid for by the Branch. You can reach our Clinic on 01473 231972 between 10.30am and 1.30pm on Tuesdays and Fridays. You can also email our Clinic Administrator on firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our Charity Shops
Our charity shops in Ipswich, Felixstowe and Stowmarket provide a vital source of funds for our local animal welfare work. They are always looking for donations of clothing, shoes, books, handbags, CDs, DVDs, jewellery, bric-a-brac, small pieces of furniture and working electrical items. We can also sell shabby clothes or shoes to a textile recycling company. You can drop off items at our shops or our Animal Centre and we can collect. Just one bag of good quality items could raise £25 or more.
Would YOU like to volunteer?
Without our wonderful volunteers we simply would not be able to run our Branch as we do. We have a variety of roles such as fundraising, helping in our charity shops, dog walking, animal socialising, home visiting and more. Whatever you can offer, we would love to hear from you.
