Adoping an animal from the RSPCA

View animals for adoption

The RSPCA Cambridge takes in a wide variety of homeless animals in need of a new start. Are you looking for a new pet to share your life with? Take a look at our rehoming gallery to see the rescue animals currently in our care that need a good home.

Cats and dogs are primarily adopted via the private boarding kennels where we keep them, while smaller animals such as ferrets, guinea pigs, fancy rats, mice, hamsters, gerbils etc are kept in individual fosterers’homes.

This does mean that the small animals can be scattered over a wide area, so please be aware that making arrangements to view them can be slightly more complicated. You should also be aware that the smaller animals, although making lovely pets, don't have a very long lifespan.
