The Royal Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals

Do you care about animals? The RSPCA is the British equivalent of the ASPCA in America. For the past two years I have been a volunteer at my local RSPCA shop and have been amazed at the generosity of those who have donated items for us to sell. Last year in our area, we raised enough funds to build a new animal sanctuary.

The RSPCA is the world's oldest and largest animal welfare organization. They are kept very busy seeing to animal welfare and keep little of the resources back for themselves, often working long hours.

I hope you find this information interesting and that it will inspire you to support this animal charity. Just like Patch here, every animal deserves the basic love and care that we can ensure for them as their guardians and they need our protection from those who would abuse them instead.

The RSPCA Aims - to prevent animal cruelty and promote animal welfare and protection

      Great to see that the RSPCA is doing so much to take care of animals who need care and love. It's wonderful to know that you volunteer for the organization as well. I featured this lens on my Animal Rescue Site lens. Thanks for stopping by!
