Paddy's Appeal

Paddy is a very special boy currently in the care of RSPCA West Dorset Branch.
Unfortunately, Paddy was born with two of his paws missing, and he will require a little more than most to ensure he will enjoy the happy, active and pampered life he deserves.

We are currently raising funds to enable us to have Paddy fully assessed by a specialist vet.

We need to raise 1,700 for this.

Every penny donated will be very much appreciated.

Needed - Donated Cat Food

Our cats are fed exclusively on Whiskas and Felix, as using a variety of cat foods can upset their tummies. 

If you could donate a few cans or pouches, we would be so grateful. 

Food can be dropped off at Taylor's, or at any of our Charity Shops.

Or you could donate cat food money by PayPal, just send us a message to let us know what it's for.

Our No-Euthanasia policy

It is the policy of the Branch that it will not authorise the euthanasia of any animal except where such animal has been both:

  1.            examined by a qualified vet that has been directly appointed by the Branch ("Vet"); and

  2.            the Vet has provided the Branch with their professional opinion that the said animal is either:

(i)               dying and is suffering or will suffer in the near future; or

(ii)              is in significant pain or distress without the possibly of treatment.

The Animal Welfare Act

"The Five Freedoms"

As well as increasing the penalties for those who inflict the most serious offences, the Animal Welfare Act makes it a legal requirement for pet owners to do what is reasonable to provide for their animal's needs. These are:

a proper diet (food and water)
somewhere suitable to live
any need to be housed with or apart from other animals
allowing them to express normal behaviour
protection from pain, suffering, injury and disease
