Can an animal like Bella count on your kindness this Christmas?
Last year, we received over 114,000 calls to our 24/7 phone line and rescued over 25,000 animals in the run up to Christmas.
The day after Boxing Day, at around 10pm, we took a call about a small white puppy that had been seen running at the side of a dark road. She was bleeding and clearly distressed.
When RSPCA Inspector Alison Fletcher collected Bella she discovered that she had a prolapse. It's incredibly painful and if not treated quickly an animal can soon die.
Sadly, it's not unusual for us to find animals in such a serious condition. Some people abandon animals because they don't want to pay the vet fees. Bella could even have been bred as a Christmas present, then dumped by the side of the road because she was too poorly to sell.
Whatever the reason Bella was in desperate need of some love and kindness, please send a gift today to help rescue a suffering animal like Bella.
On Christmas day last year, we had 1,688 dogs, cats and other animals in our centres.
