Animal Welfare & Education

Branch Animal Welfare Officer

In an effort to better support the local community, the Branch has appointed 2 Animal Welfare Officers (AWOs).  This role is to assist the National RSPCA Inspectors with local animal collections and wildlife casualties.  They also support local pet owners with advice and generally spread the animal welfare message throughout the Cornish community.

Our Branch AWOs do not replace the role of Inspectors, and are unable 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.

You can contact the Cornwall Branch AWO via our Centre telephone number: 01637 881455 between 11.00 and 16:00 every day except Wednesday.  Outside these times, please use the telephone  numbers above to contact the National RSPCA.

If time permits, our AWOs also hope to be able to visit community events throughout Cornwall.
