Our RSPCA Blackberry Farm Animal Centre occupies a 10-acre site overlooking the rural villages of Waddesdon and Quainton in Buckinghamshire. We are just two minutes from the A41 between Aylesbury and Bicester.
The centre's facilities
The centre has 20 rehoming kennels and 34 cat rehoming pens. These areas are open to the public so potential adopters can get to know the animals.
The centre also has an intake area and kennels for case animals which sadly stay with us for long periods of time. Dogs in our care can unleash their energy on the exercise field or practice their agility skills in the training barn.
We also care for small farm animals and have two stables and a field shelter.
Blackberry Farm Animal Centre's shop
Our shop sells mainly new goods, so come along and take a look at the products your pet might need. Our shop opens Tuesday - Sunday 10.30am to 4.00pm.
Rehabilitation, training and education
At Blackberry Farm we hold dog training classes in our purpose built training facility. We run basic, intermediate and advanced courses, agility and trick training.
Staff at the centre also aim to challenge the negative perception people have of Staffordshire bull terriers and founded the RSPCA Blackberry Farm Animal Centre's club for Staffordshire bull terrier owners and people interested in the breed.
The club is now run by volunteers and it sets out to prove that Staffy and Staffy-crosses can be the loving and faithful family pets that everyone yearns for. As a group they promote the breed and enjoy group walks in the country.
The Staffordshire bull terrier club has grown from just two registered members when it was formed in October 2010, to more than 50 members today! Activities to-date have included fun, agility and even heelwork to music.
