what we do: care for animals

Every year we take in and care for thousands of animals – pets, wildlife and everything in between. We offer veterinary care, rehabiliation, and release for wild animals or rehoming for domestic ones. Find out more by clicking here.

Equal opportunities at the rspca

The RSPCA wholeheartedly supports the principle of equal opportunities in employment and opposes all forms of unfair discrimination on the grounds of colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, religion or belief, age or disability.

We aim to create a diverse workforce where all individuals are treated with dignity and respect. We believe it is in the RSPCA’s best interests and those who work within it, to recognise the value of each individual and to combat prejudice, stereotyping and harassment.

Every possible step will be taken to ensure that individuals are treated equally and fairly and that decisions on recruitment, selection, training and development, pay and promotion are based solely on objective and job related criteria.


We are the UK’s biggest animal charity and every year we rescue more animals from cruelty and danger than any other organisation – a fact we’re very proud of.

We value and recognise our apprentices’ contributions and are proud to offer an extensive and generous benefits package.

We offer apprenticeship programmes across all areas of the organisation – click to find out more!
