Puppies like Ralph urgently need your help

Please donate now to stop suffering at the hands of cruel puppy traders

When Rachel met the puppy she had seen online - she knew that something wasn't right. The 'mum' didn't seem interested at all in her puppy who was thin and quiet. And the man selling the puppy was rough and unkind to him.

Rachel couldn't bear to leave the puppy behind. So she bought him and named him Ralph. Sadly, her joy at bringing Ralph home didn't last long. That same night, Ralph started having trouble breathing. He became sick and needed emergency treatment to save his life.

Our Special Operations Unit was alerted and launched one of our largest operations ever. Ralph was just one of around 450 puppies sold by a single network of puppy traders. Operation Neptune found and stopped the heartless puppy trading network responsible.

This wouldn't be possible without supporters like you.

More than 80 percent of your donation will go to rescuing and rehoming or releasing vulnerable animals. This means abandoned dogs and cats will be cared for, or an injured fox can get a much needed check-up. Most importantly, it ensures that the voice of all animals can be heard.
From bats to badgers and seals to sparrows, we help animals great and small. Each year, we rescue more than 100,000 of them. Without the funds gained through our marketing, we would not be able to finance our crucial work.
Your 1p will support our board members as they create campaigns and push for governance change. At home or abroad, our prevention campaigns are essential for improving the safety and happiness of animals.
