From one-eyed cats and stray rabbits to puppies with broken legs and dogs kept in tiny crates – the RSPCA has dealt with every kind of animal SOS.
Now the charity’s East Lincolnshire branch, which covers Spalding, is making a special appeal to find homes for those animals who have had a particularly rough time.
RSPCA inspector Rebecca Harper said the branch is currently full to capacity with several cats, dogs and smaller animals needing homes.
“This time of the year is particularly difficult when it comes to getting the animals rehomed,” she says.
The friendly animals featured here are as follows:
l Charlie the Staffy pup was rescued from his previous owners who had failed to treat his broken leg properly. He is desperate for a loving home.
l Several feral cats at the RSPCA branch are looking for a home on a farm or stable yard. They were rescued as strays from a town centre.
l Toby the cuddly rabbit was picked up in Boston as a stray wandering the streets.
l Gizmo the friendly cat was rescued from an unsuitable home – but he is unhappy being stuck in a pen.
l Khan the affectionate husky was rescued from his previous owners who kept him in a small crate in a shed. He has been waiting for a home since April last year.
