Starving, freezing, critically ill

Maisie was freezing cold and curled up in a ball, not responding to voice or touch. Her visible ribs and her sparse, dull coat told a terrible tale of neglect. She was the thinnest dog our inspector Amy had ever seen. Her first thought? This poor dog is dead. 

We rushed Maisie to the nearest vet for vital, life-saving care and thankfully, she’s made a full recovery. But right now so many animals like Maisie are hungry, frightened and unloved. Will you help save one this Christmas?

Please help rescue more neglected animals like Maisie. Please give £3 a month.
Maisie was found freezing cold and curled up in a ball.

Animal neglect and abandonment are at a three-year high.*

Thousands of animals lives are hanging in the balance this Christmas. We must come together for the animals who need us. Our rescue teams are set to be busy, yet no matter how many animals need our help, we must continue rescuing them. For many, the RSPCA is their only hope - but you can help make sure we’re there for more dogs like Maisie.

This Christmas, every gift you give the RSPCA will make a huge difference. Please donate £3 a month now.

Maisie has made a remarkable recovery thanks to the treatment and care received through donations from the public.

It’s people like you who power the rescue. Your generosity drives us forward. With so many more counting on us this Christmas, can we count on you?
