RSPCA Southport, Ormskirk & District Branch tries to find
forever homes for Cats, Dogs, Rabbits and a few small mammals.
Many of our animals have suffered cruelty or neglect and are
in need of veterinary care, recovery and rehabilitation before
they can be rehomed. Generally, we do not deal with animals
that need to be rehomed for a variety of other social,
domestic or financial reasons unless there is a genuine animal
All of the
animals that are currently up for rehoming are displayed on
this website and on our
Our Branch now only accepts its dogs from the RSPCA
Inspectorate. This means that we look after some of the most
serious cases of cruelty and neglect in the country.
We no longer accept dogs for rehoming from the general
public, or allow unrestricted public viewing of our dogs.
When dogs have recovered enough to be rehomed,
members of the public will be asked to complete our rehoming
questionnaire prior to being given individual supervised
access to the dog they wish to rehome.
We are not licensed to take in stray dogs.

When our cattery re-opens in October, we will accept
both RSPCA Inspectorate cats and cats from the general public for
rehoming. Please note that cat space will always be limited,
despite our much larger capacity and you may have to ring
around a number of animal rescue centres if you are looking to
rehome your cat. Please call us to see if we have room before
bringing an animal to the Shelter.
The cattery will be open to public viewing
When our new animal accommodation opens in August, our
rabbits will kept in a separate part of the main cattery.

We will not accept rabbits for rehoming from the general

We hope to have set up a small reptile rehoming
facility at the Shelter by September. We will rehome RSPCA
Inspectorate Reptiles (reptiles will not be accepted directly
from the public) to people that have demonstrable
knowledge or skills to look after these exotics.
We will not be accepting reptiles from the general
public or allowing public viewing unless there is a genuine
commitment to rehome.
Please note that there is currently no vet in
attendance at the Branch, although we hope that Myerscough
Veterinary Group will be setting up a practice on-site from
late September / October 2014
