Animal Welfare & Education

Branch Animal Welfare Officer

In an effort to better support the local community, the Branch has appointed an Animal Welfare Officer (AWO).  This role is to assist the National RSPCA Inspectors with local animal collections and wildlife casualties.

You can contact the Branch AWO on 07521918577, between 08:00 and 16:00 daily.  If time permits, they also hope to be out and about visiting community events and spreading the animal welfare message throughout Cornwall.

Branch AWOs will not replace the role of Inspectors, but will be able to take some more basic tasks, animal collections and releases and offer general advice and support to pet owners and the local community.  However, they are not able to investigate reports of cruelty, abuse or neglect, which must still be handled by RSPCA Inspectors and reported through the National number: 0300 1234 999.

If you should see the AWO around the county, please say hello!
