Who we are

The RSPCA Solent Branch (The Stubbington Ark) is the focus for local animal welfare services covering 400 sq.miles of Hampshire. We are a separately registered branch of the RSPCA and are self-funded, receiving no financial assistance from the government or lottery funding. We rely on the support and donations from the local community to operate.

What we do

Despite the excellent new facilities, expansion has been necessary year by year to keep pace with the ever-growing demands made by todays’ uncaring society. Ignorance being the key to many of the problems the we face, ‘The Ark’ considers education vital to ensure a better future for animals. We are one of the few shelters in the country to have developed an Education Centre and we encourage visits from school parties, youth groups and adult groups. Promoting knowledge of the work we do and the problems we face, will hopefully pay dividends in years to come.

Why we need you

We are now receiving 7 times as many calls for help as in 1984 when we first conceived ‘The Ark’ project. That is over 145 calls a day and each year take in over 6,000 animals. At present we have over 140 dogs and nearly 150 cats looking for new homes. We have a multitude of other pets such as rabbits, guinea pigs and birds that we try to re home and wildlife we try to help. Last year we found homes for 85% of our charges but that record has become hard to maintain. The easy availability of animals from unscrupulous breeders, puppy farms and irresponsible owners who refuse to neuter their animals, coupled with an amazing lack of knowledge on how to look after animals by many owners, ensures a constant stream of unwanted animals into the shelter.

It costs over £3,500 a day to keep our Ark operational, we are one of the largest RSPCA shelters in the UK. Providing shelter and rehoming for all types of animals; domestic, wildlife, farm and exotics.


A list of charities that we are partnered with are here for you to select. Some of the charities that we work with have fundraising targets and others are self-funded by yourself, each charity we work with will state if they will contribute to some of your jump cost or if you need to self-fund your own place.


You can book individually or as a group with just a £50 deposit per person on any operational day. Some of the charities we work with have reserved spaces on pre-selected days that you are more than welcome to join.


OK you’re all set – This is now the time to start fundraising for your selected charity, we recommend to set up an online fundraising page as all funds you raise will automatically go to the charity of your choice. Please remember you are unable to use any money raised to pay for your skydive and if you have a target set by the charity you have to hit this 3 weeks before the date of your jump to ensure these funds are online for the charity to see!
