RSPCA Cymru works and campaigns tirelessly to ensure all animals can live free from pain and suffering.
To this end, much of the work of the Society focuses on wild (or non-domesticated) animals, their welfare and how they are treated.
Areas we look at include wild animals kept as pets, wild animals used in performance, human-wildlife conflict, cruelty to free-living wildlife, management, control and culling of wildlife, non-native species, the rescue and rehabilitation of wildlife and the wildlife trade.
Policy is developed in conjunction with the RSPCA’s Wildlife science team, who have expert knowledge on a range of welfare and ethical issues.
The Society also has four wildlife centres in England, which many animals located in Wales will be taken to so they can be rehabilitated.
