The reason we say that is unfortunately we are unable to discuss complaints about specific people and what action may have been taken. We understand how frustrating that is for animal lovers but releasing information could prejudice a future prosecution or lead to us being fined

🐴 Dusty came into our care after she had been found abandoned covered in large wounds that needed urgent treatment. After some much-needed veterinary treatment and TLC, this beautiful girl is now looking for a new furever home

Sorry, I couldn't tell for sure from the pictures but if they are terrapins they do often live in outdoor ponds and will be fine However, if you do have any concerns for their welfare please contact us.

I'm sorry that you feel let down by us. As a charity with limited resources we can't help every animal immediately as much as we would like to but please rest assured that we try our best. We're all animal lovers at the RSPCA and it breaks our hearts when we're not able to help

Tethering compromises a horse’s well-being in many ways but it is not illegal in the UK, so while we give advice and education to owners, it's not something we can take action against unless the horse’s welfare is affected (eg an injury caused by improper tethering equipment)

Unfortunately we are unable to give details about incidents for legal reasons. That doesn’t mean we are ignoring the situation and we can assure you we take all allegations of cruelty or neglect seriously.

Tethering itself is not illegal in the UK, so while we try to give advice and education to as many owners as possible, it is not something we can take direct action against unless the horse’s welfare is affected. If you believe this is the case, please call us on 0300 1234 999.

We strongly oppose breed specific legislation which sees potentially wonderful family pets being put to sleep simply because of the way they look & would like to see it repealed and replaced with something which recognises that every dog is an individual

We are on the brink of a cat crisis! In 2018 our centres and branches took in a whopping 28,986 cats, which equates to three cats every hour, on average. Heartbreakingly, many litters of kittens are abandoned over the summer months:

There are rumours going around on social media about this incident and incorrect claims that we are not doing anything because we don't care, which is not true. We've been looking into this for several days and would not ignore an incident where there are animal welfare concerns

Hi Mark, we can't take reports via social media I'm afraid. If you are unable to take the duck to a wildlife rehabilitator () please can you report this to us on 0300 1234 999. Thank you.

We feel that it's important to highlight cases of animal cruelty we've dealt with via TV and the press, in order to educate the public about animals' needs & hopefully prevent such things from happening again. We are a charity so our funds are ploughed back into helping animals.
