The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

This charity is almost 200 years old and is one the best known charities around the world. I consider it to be the Red Cross for animals. As an animal lover myself, I support the RSPCA and have been doing so for many years, including volunteering when I was in high school. There are some sick, b*astards out there who deliberately harm and injure animals, even 5-day old golden retriever puppies and get away with it. Clearly, this is not right and something ought to be done. Just because animals are not as intelligent as we are (not necessarily the case), it does not mean that they deserve less respect. We must realise that this planet is not ours, and that we came much, much, much later than all the animals on Earth. See what you can do to assist in RSPCA’s work.
From their website:

The RSPCA’s vision is to work for a world in which all humans respect and live in harmony with all other members of the animal kingdom.

Our mission statement
The RSPCA as a charity will, by all lawful means, prevent cruelty, promote kindness to and alleviate suffering of animals.

The RSPCA intends to achieve its mission by:

  • effecting strong branch, regional, national and international organisations dedicated to providing a public service, delivering effective relief of animal suffering and enforcing the law
  • working tirelessly to reduce the harmful impact of human activities on animals through education, campaigning and the application of ethics, science and law
  • striving for the highest levels of efficiency, effectiveness and integrity
  • urging that, save where the public benefit requires, humankind should not intentionally cause suffering to any animal when it is not for its own benefit, or cause suffering by neglect. This applies whatever the animal, or the situation in which it finds itself.
