Scottish SPCA.

AS Scotland's animal welfare charity, the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals rescue thousands of abused, abandoned and injured animals every year.

The Scottish SPCA's aims are to stop cruelty to animals and encourage kindness and humanity in their treatment.

They have rescue centres across the country and they have rehomed more than 5000 animals to loving new families so far this year.

The charity neuter every dog and cat they rehome and never put a healthy animal to sleep.

Their wildlife rescue centre also rehabilitates every kind of wild animal in Scotland.

Scottish SPCA inspectors investigate cruelty and last year helped take more people responsible for abuse to court than ever before.

The charity also offer a free Prevention Through Education programme to every primary school in Scotland, encouraging children to treat animals with the compassion and respect they deserve.

As an animal welfare charity, they receive no government or lottery funding and rely on public donations to continue rescuing and rehoming animals in desperate need of help.

A spokeswoman said: "It's only thanks to our incredible supporters we are able to continue our vital work."

The Scottish SPCA is completely separate from the RSPCA, who operate in England and Wales only.

If you are interested in rehoming an animal or wish to donate to or join the Scottish SPCA, please visit scottishspca.org or telephone 03000 999 999.
