Bert – and his amazing recovery

Posted in Branch News and Updates, Success Stories, The dark side of the work of the RSPCA.

One of the RSPCA’s Inspectors brought Bert, who is about 12 years of age, to the branch to find the urgent care he desperately needed.    One of our brilliant, volunteer foster families agreed to take him into their home to try their very best to help him recover from his appalling neglect.

This lovely boy was quite literally a walking skeleton when he arrived, with pressure sores from lying on concrete, and was in a collapsed state finding it very difficult to even stand up to eat and drink………..but just look at him now!

He is still under the care of one of our local veterinary practices and, now he has put on enough weight, he will have a much needed dental operation.   Until the huge build up of  plaque is removed we won’t know just how many teeth will have to be extracted.

Handsome Bert will be staying with his foster carers forever as they have asked to adopt him officially once he has recovered from operation.

If you could foster for the branch and help animals like Bert to recover from their previous neglect please contact us.   You should live in the branch area so that you will have full support.
