The clinic which houses Havering’s RSPCA branch has closed until further notice because its building needs repairs.

The RSPCA Essex Havering and Harold Hill Branch, Chippenham Road, Harold Hill, posted an apology on its Facebook page on Monday stating that the clinic will be closed for the foreseeable but will continue to do its valuable work wherever possible.

It said: “During the recent adverse weather the Campbell Clinic in Romford was closed to the public.

“During the closure, a review was undertaken of work needed to the clinic building, and following this, a decision was taken to keep it closed until further notice.

“We apologise to our clients for the inconvenience caused as a result of this closure, but regretfully it will not be possible to keep the clinic open at the present time.

“The branch will continue to help where it can regarding the welfare needs of any animals, however, in the short term, anyone who needs to make alternative arrangements for veterinary care of their animals is asked to either contact their local vet or PDSA or for any veterinary emergencies.

Alternatively if you wish to have the cat neutered, you can contact the C4 scheme which offers free neutering for cats on 03000 121212 weekdays 9am - 1pm, or email cats/

If you require a dog to be neutered, there may be limited financial assistance available subject to eligibility criteria. Please email

“We will keep our branch members and the community updated once we have any more news.”
