Chief executive, Chris Sherwood, said:

“Thanks to our amazing, dedicated and professional team of staff and volunteers, the RSPCA is still rescuing and rehoming animals in these difficult times. 

“We are having to change the way we work, but please be assured we are doing everything we can to make sure that we get help to the animals most in need.”

“There is a great deal of anxiety, worry and concern at the moment. Being around animals can bring great pleasure, companionship and mental health benefits, so we hope people will draw comfort from spending time with their pets and watching wildlife to help them through the weeks and months ahead.”
