Zola was abandoned in a garden
By RSPCA Inspector Anthony Joynes
Zola's owner moved on and left her behind
Zola was very nervous when I went into the garden, but soon came round once she realised I was friendly and there to help. She really is a lovely dog. I took her to a vet for health checks and she stayed there for a few days before moving to an RSPCA branch. As I visited her to check on her progress, Zola really bonded with me.
We moved her to our Chesterfield and North Derbyshire branch, who gave her plenty of love during her rehabilitation and it wasn't long before they found Zola her forever home.
A home of her own
"The first time she went into our garden Zola was so excited," Sarah told me. "It was like she knew it was hers to play in. It's so lovely having her around, she's so fun and loving. She's a delight."
Zola is safe and loved now, but other animals need our help. We have to keep coming to their rescue because, for many, the RSPCA is their only hope. With so many animals counting on us, can we count on you?

Maisie's amazing life
She was freezing cold and unresponsive. Our inspector had never seen a dog as thin. Now her life is transformed.
Peter's joy and freedom
Riddled with fleas and suffering from fur loss. He was locked in a dirty cage without food and water. Now he enjoys freedom surrounded by love.
