RSPCA Sunderland, Hartlepool & South Tyneside Branch The RSPCA Sunderland, Hartlepool & South Tyneside Branch are an independent branch that supports our local work of the RSPCA Inspectorate. We provide subsidized neutering and micro-chipping of companion animals for those in the Branch area on low incomes. This work helps to control dog/cat/rabbit and ferret populations through neutering and benefits those on means tested benefits by giving them financial help to neuter and microchip companion animals, thereby promoting responsible pet ownership. We rely on funding/donations from the public/members/supporters in our areas. Please help us raise funds by sending a Christmas E card this year.
