Your local animal home. We are a separate charity operating under RSPCA rules, our work is invaluable to the lives of the many animals that have suffered from cruelty or neglect. We are responsible for raising our operating funds locally.

We are an independently funded animal re-homing centre that depends on generous donations and fund-raising activities. We receive no state or lottery aid. It costs over £5,000 per week to finance our animal home. The money we raise is used to support animal welfare and re-homing within our district and animal home.

On average, over 500 animals are re-homed from this centre each year.

With the aid of the national society’s local inspectors, the branch services a wide area including Ashby, Measham, Netherseal, Packington, Swadlincote, Melbourne, Ticknall, Winshill, Uttoxeter, Stapenhill, Tamworth, Lichfield, Rugeley and all the villages in between!


Throughout the year, Hillfield Animal Home holds events to raise much needed funds to run the animal home and provide veterinary help for the animals in our care.

Adopt a Pet

You can view our various animals available to adopt using the drop-down menu. All of the animals that come into our care are given a thorough behaviour assessment. This is so that we can get to know them, enabling us to find them the perfect forever home. Within this assessment period, they are thoroughly vet checked, vaccinated, neutered/spayed, given appropriate protection against parasites and given any other medical attention they may need.

Our adoption fees cover the costs of all of of the treatment mentioned above.

Dog adoption – £135

Cat adoption – £80

Rabbit – £45

Guinea Pig – £15 each or £25 per pair
