Southport, Ormskirk & District Animal Centre

Southport, Ormskirk & District Branch is a separately Registered Charity to the National RSPCA, which is completely reliant upon donations, legacies and monies raised through its Charity Shop, together with the public’s generous support of our locally run fundraising events. We aim to support the national RSPCA through our rehoming work and by promoting its animal welfare objectives.


We are always in need of toys and accessories for our animals. Amazon is a great way for you to help the animals during their stay with us. There is no end to what you can send, but we have listed a few items to help you make up your mind, or that the animals would particularly appreciate ….. they told us!

Our Animal Centre, in New Cut Lane, on the Birkdale / Halsall border, covers Southport, Ormskirk and the surrounding areas as far south as Maghull. The Centre takes in, cares for, supports and helps rehabilitate cats & dogs that have been rescued from cruelty & neglect by the national RSPCA; whilst we find them new and forever homes.


The Animal Centre is open to the general public by appointment only.


Most of the rehoming process is conducted online, please see our Adoption Page. 

To report animal cruelty or neglect, please call the national RSPCA on 0300 1234 999 (8am to 7:30pm). 


If you have found a stray dog, please contact your local authority's dog warden service. 

If you have found an injured stray cat or wild animal, please call your local vet for advice. 

Please note that we are currently short of both cat and dog food (dry or meat) and would greatly appreciate any donations left in the 'donation bin' by the front door of the Animal Centre. 

There are a number of ways in which you can help the animals in our care. You can send them toys and food parcels via our Amazon Wish List. You can also send a donation via Just Giving to make sure that Gift Aid is added. This means that an extra 25% of your donation is added by H.M. Govt. from the taxes you have already paid.

For other ways to help us, please see our How to Help page.
