Lockdown is devastating for everyone, including the local RSPCA Animal Centre, but caring for animals cannot stop. Despite losing 95% of income in the first lockdown, the team still has animals of all shapes and sizes to look after.
One such case is Tommy, rescued in a terrible state by RSPCA inspectors. It was unclear what effect severe malnourishment would have on his body but he is making a steady recovery so far. Despite suffering cruelty, Tommy is a happy little soul who loves a fuss, cuddle and his extra feeds. The fact that he has learnt to trust humans again so soon after his rescue is nothing short of a miracle.
The team are working hard through lockdown to rehabilitate this little lad so he will be able to find his forever home and be able to live the life he deserves.
Tommy is just one example; there are so many other animals that need your help. If able to, please help Doncaster, Rotherham and District RSPCA by donating to their emergency appeal. The team relies more than ever on kind donations from the community and support from local businesses. A £5.00 donation is the equivalent of feeding a dog for three days, while a £25.00 donation will provide vital veterinary medicines and healthcare. You can donate via Paypal, their website or Facebook page. You can also donate £5.00 by texting RSPCADRB to 70085.
As always, they thank you for your continued support and they wish all our local community the best of health and urge you to take care of yourselves.
