Overview

The first SPCA or Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was formed in 1824 in London when a group of concerned individuals wanted to do something to protect the horses and livestock being used to pull carts and carriages in London’s streets. They appointed ‘Inspectors’ to go out and inspect the conditions of these animals and actively worked for improvements in the law to prevent cruelty. The formation of the first SPCA predated the first UK Police force by 5 years.

Since then SPCA’s have been formed all over the world to prevent cruelty and abuse and safeguard the welfare of animals globally. The SPCA in Bermuda can trace its roots back to 1919.

The SPCA has a full-time Inspector who provides 24 hour emergency cover for the islands animals and wildlife. No two days are the same and the work can vary from executing warrants in order to seize abused and neglected dogs to rescuing stray kittens from underground pipes.
The Bermuda SPCA has ties to that original SPCA (now the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) and strongly believes that all animals are entitled to the Five Freedoms of animal care that are explained more on this site or you can download here Five Freedoms.pdf
