The RSPCA Leeds, Wakefield and District Branch promotes kindness and
prevents cruelty to animals in the local area
As the RSPCA Leeds, Wakefield and District Branch, we are dedicated to rehoming and rehabilitating animals within our local area.
Here at the branch, we are dedicated to rehoming, rehabilitating and doing everything we can do for animals that have not had the best start in life. We all work hard to make sure that these animals are given the best care and treatment, so that they can go on to find their forever homes.
We are a separately registered branch of the RSPCA and are primarily responsible for raising our own funds locally; we rely heavily on the funds generated by our network of charity shops & tireless fundraising in the community, without which we would be unable to carry on our important animal welfare activities.
If you need to contact us here at the branch, you can either call us on
0113 253 6952
or email us at
Exciting news - we are now starting our very own puppy classes every Thursday as from 15th October.
Please see poster below and, if you require any further information or wish to apply, please contact the branch.
Animal Centre Opening Hours
We have moved! We are now located in our brand new Animal Centre in East Ardsley. Our Animal Centre has brilliant new facilities that mean that we can truly give everything to the animals that we care for.
Now that we have our very own Animal Centre, any potential adopters are free to come along, speak to a member of staff and view our animals.

Please note although we are now at our Animal Centre and are happy for you to come along and view our animals, a constant stream of strange faces and visitors will often unsettle and disrupt our dogs. Most are survivors of abuse, neglect and suffering and so need a calm and quiet environment. Because of this we ask that all visitors report to reception so that a member of our Animal Care Team can come along and have a chat with you regarding your needs.
The dog that you wish to view will then be brought down to the Visitor Centre Arena for the viewing, which is a neutral environment for both you and the dog, and can give you the best possible meet and greet with your new canine friend!
Similarly, if you are interested in adopting a cat from us, please report to reception. A member of the Animal Care Team will then come along and accompany you to the cattery.
Thank you for your understanding.
