About Us

Little Valley Animal Shelter is owned and run by the South, East and West Devon Branch of the RSPCA and is located on the outskirts of Exeter. The Shelter, founded in 1991, supports the work of local RSPCA inspectors by caring for and rehoming over 1000 of the neediest animals from our local area every year.

The South, East and West Devon Branch are a separately registered branch of the RSPCA and responsible for raising funds locally.

All animals stay at the Shelter until they are adopted into caring, responsible homes. A homechecker visits every prospective owner and follow-up checks are made to ensure the animal is well and settled.

The Shelter can accept a wide variety of animals, including dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, rodents, ferrets, aviary birds, poultry and farm animals.  We also hold wildlife, pending their transfer to RSPCA West Hatch in Taunton.

Animals are only put to sleep on veterinary advice or because of incurable behavioural problems.
