Reports of abandoned animals are set to surge by almost 50 percent* - we need your help today

Dear Supporter

No animal should have to suffer a slow and painful death. But sadly, this could be the fate of thousands upon thousands of vulnerable animals this summer.

Last year, we received a staggering 50 percent increase in calls about animal abandonment compared to winter, with an average of nine animals reported every single hour.*

One of these animals was Penny. She was found collapsed by a rubbish heap on a blisteringly hot day in June. When we got to her, she was suffering from severe dehydration and hyperthermia, so weak she could barely lift her head. Had we arrived only a few hours later, she might not have survived.

Will you give a gift to be there for abandoned animals like Penny?
