RSPCA West Dorset Branch is a separate charity affiliated to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).  We cover the towns of Dorchester, Bridport, Weymouth, Portland, Lyme Regis, Charmouth, Sherborne and Axminster (Devon) as well as all the surrounding villages and hamlets.  Our main priorities are the welfare and rehoming of local animals.  We raise our funds within the Branch boundaries and all money raised is spent within the area.  We are responsible for "Taylors Animal Rehoming Centre" at Kingston Maurward, Dorchester.
 

If you wish to report an Animal Emergency or have concerns regarding the welfare of an animal please telephone 0300 1234 999.  Please also call this number if you need to have an unowned or wild animal collected by an RSPCA Animal Collection Officer. 

PLEASE DO NOT EMAIL US REGARDING EMERGENCIES OR CRUELTY AS THIS IS NOT THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY OF DEALING WITH SUCH MATTERS.  CALL 0300 1234 999 AND REPORT THE MATTER TO THE RSPCA NATIONAL CALL CENTRE.  THANK YOU.

Voluntary Positions Available

The Committee of the RSPCA West Dorset Branch consists entirely of volunteers.  We are always in need on new active supporters who can help us to help the local animals.  If any of the following are of interest to you please telephone us on 01305 259672 or Email mail@westdorsetrspca.org for more details.  Please note that all of the below are voluntary jobs, but the payment of knowing that you are doing something out of the kindness of your heart to help local animals should not be underestimated.

Minutes Secretary

A trustee vacancy has arisen for the role of Minutes Secretary.  Duties include attending committee meetings, taking notes and producing minutes of the meeting, preparation of agendas and distribution via email.  Meetings are held once a month and total time commitment is in the region of 6 hours each month.  This role would suit someone with previous experience of minute taking, with good grammatical and basic PC skills.  As a trustee, you will also have the opportunity to become actively involved with the running of the branch, and there would be the chance to take on additional admin roles if desired.

Please email Susan on mail@westdorsetrspca.org to express an interest in this role.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS AN UNPAID / VOLUNTARY POSITION

Shop Volunteers

We are in need of volunteer helpers in our Shops in Bridport, Dorchester, Sherborne and Axminster. Please visit our Shops page for more details.

Fundraiser

We desperately need more fundraising help - unless the money comes in we can not help continue to help the animals, it is as simple as that!  Fundraising for the West Dorset Branch can take as little or as much of your free time as you have to spare.  Even if you could only help for a couple of hours a year we'd be thrilled to hear from you - check out our events page and let us know if you'd be available to assist with any of these.   If you have a bit more time to spare to help the animals perhaps you could become more actively involved, we need people to organise events in all parts of our Branch area, small Coffee Mornings in your village, plant sales, jumble sales, collections at your work place, quiz evenings - anything at all!  If you feel this is something you could do please contact us and we will do all we can to assist.  Never feel that you can't do enough - it is a sad fact that people wiling to help with fundraising are incredibly few and far between and a little help goes a long way.
