About Us


Bristol A.R.C. has been caring for the city’s pets and wildlife since 1887, helping, healing and homing over 7,000 vulnerable animals each year. We are the longest-standing and largest local animal charity, and although we are proud to be affiliated with the RSPCA, we receive no automatic funding from it. We rely entirely on local support within the community to fund our vital work.

This year marks 135 years of our charity – we have been helping, healing and homing Bristol’s pets and wildlife here in the same part of the city since 1887. Although our name has changed, our mission remains the same. Thank you from our four-legged, furry and feathered residents for your support.
