Did you know once every two-and-a-half days we rescue a stricken animal from perilous cliff ledges and isolated mountainsides?
RSPCA inspectors who join our rope rescue teams go through rigorous training to prepare themselves for recovering livestock, pets and wildlife safely from dangerous situations.
But rope rescues are only part of their daily duties as RSPCA inspectors, which sees them investigate allegations of cruelty and help all types of animal in need.
With the number of animal cliff rescues on the increase, we learn more about life as a member of an RSPCA rope rescue team.
