Doris the puppy didn’t have the greatest start in life. She was found when she was just days old, dumped by a trash can. And the pup was so small that her rescuers couldn’t tell what breed she was. Her subsequent transformation, though, is simply amazing.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) is the biggest and oldest animal welfare organization on the planet. For almost 200 years, the U.K.-based charity has been responsible for rescuing and rehoming thousands of animals.
In 2017 alone the RSPCA rescued 114,584 animals and rehomed 44,611 pets. The charity also responded to over 140,000 cruelty complaints and went on to secure nearly 1,500 convictions. And to keep pets safer, the RSPCA also microchipped 222,664 of our furry friends.
