The majority of animals who come into our care are rescued and brought in to us by our local inspectors who work for the National RSPCA. Just recently they reported their annual cruelty stats for 2016. The report states that amazingly they investigated more than 400 allegations of animal cruelty every single day last year - a rise of 5% from the previous year.
Our branch is a vital part of a large network of RSPCA branches across the UK who are each individually responsible for raising their own funds. Each branch helps to provide the medical care and a safe and warm environment for the animals who are rescued. When they have recovered, they are made available for re-homing. If funds allow, we also help to re-home unwanted pets.
The increase in animals coming into our care has had a significant impact on our branch. Our vet bills alone last year rose a massive 27% and now exceed £170,000.
This massive jump means we must try to increase our income to continue providing care for the animals.
