We work to promote kindness
and prevent cruelty to animals.
We take care of neglected,
abused and homeless animals until we can find them loving, new homes.
We cover Crewe, Nantwich, Winsford, Shavington, Audlem,
Malpas, Middlewich and Bunbury (see

We care for animals that have been abused or are
at risk and that have been rescued by Inspectors and Animal
Collection Officers employed by the national RSPCA.
Once the animals have recovered, they are assessed
and made available for rehoming.
Neutering and vet assistance
We run a joint neutering scheme with two local councils
which may help you with the cost of neutering your pet.
We may also be able to offer limited financial aid

Can you help us help local animals
We are staffed entirely by local volunteers and we
are responsible for raising our own funding to manage the animal
welfare work that we do (all RSPCA branches are independent charities),
so we are on a never-ending drive to raise funds to continue our work
to help as many local animals as possible.
We are really grateful for any donation you can make, large or
small. ALL donations and any funds that we raise go directly
to housing, feeding and treating the animals in our care.

A 'potted' history of the branch:
The Chester branch of the RSPCA was formed in 1862 and covered the
whole of the Crewe and Cheshire area. In July 1968, the branch was divided
into two separate branches with the Crewe area becoming the Cheshire
South West branch - the other part stayed as Chester branch (later
becoming Wirral & Chester branch in 2003/4). In January 2009, the
Cheshire South West branch changed its name to the Crewe, Nantwich
& District branch to better reflect the areas we covered.
