Welcome to the RSPCA Southridge (Potters Bar)

We are a dog, cat, rabbit, horse and other animal rehoming, fostering, rescue and adoption centre in Hertfordshire.

    News & Information

    The centre is funded by the RSPCA, yet there is still a constant demand to raise funds to cover the cost of the veterinary treatment that so many of the animals, especially the older and infirm need. The Friends help to provide a safety net for these animals. The money raised by the Friends of Southridge funds much of their treatment, sponsorship pensioner schemes.


    As well as donations via PayPal or Virgin Giving, we welcome donations by cheque. Please make your cheque out to The Friends of RSPCA Southridge and enclose your details so we can say thank you. Please post your cheque to: The Friends of RSPCA Southridge, Southridge RSPCA Animal Centre, Packhorse Lane, Potters Bar, EN6 3LZ
