We are one of the largest RSPCA animal shelters in the
Open daily 10.00am - 4.00pm,
to view the animals 10.00am - 3.30pm
Registration closes at 4pm
We operate the Stubbington Ark Animal Shelter, the Stubbington Ark Charity Shop in
Fareham, as well as the Veterinary Clinic and Swaythling Centre in Southampton.
The Stubbington Ark is the focus for local animal welfare services covering 400 sq. miles,
including the Portsmouth and Southampton area. It provides shelter for all manner of animals, domestic, wildlife, farm stock and exotics and there are usually more than 500 animals on
site at any one time. As you can imagine our running costs are extremely high and we have to raise over £3,400 per day to keep the shelter running. We receive no lottery or government
funding and in 2013 3% of our income came from the national society. We need to raise 97% of our £1.4 million annual running costs
To keep the Ark afloat we rely on donations and the generosity of our supporters and the business community. We are a separately
registered branch of the RSPCA and are primarily responsible for raising funds locally.
We receive many telephone calls per day.
