2021 sadly started for us with more neglect. Emergency services, RSPCA staff and volunteers assisted with the rescue of almost 20 dogs, so matted and covered in faeces they were beyond recognition as to their breeds. Clearly they had been neglected for a significant amount of time and required their coats to be completely shaved and emergency dentals to be carried out.
One dog was in such a state with pus leaking from her mouth that it reduced rescue staff to tears. We are all working under tough conditions at the moment and there are so many emotions when faced with the additional pressures of cases like this.
But onwards and upwards – with some much needed care and treatment over the next few weeks, we will hopefully see these little ones make a good recovery as we start to find them new homes. This positivity from rescue to rehome, is what makes it all worthwhile.
Please keep supporting us, we need to be here as much as ever before!
