The RSPCA receives one call every 27 seconds from animal lovers concerned for their pets or wild animal.

This Blue Monday - reportedly the most depressing day of the year - the RSPCA is revealing some of its funniest call outs from the last year, which include a woman mistaking a sock for a lizard!

An RSPCA officer was called to the house in Coventry to rescue the seven inch 'lizard' when it turned out to be a stripey sock! The officer advised the young girl whose bedroom it was to tidy her room and take care of her socks.

On another occasion officers were called to investigate claims a horse had been tied to the back of a trailer by its legs - only to find the filly was a fake and made of plastic. The charity’s hotline received a number of calls from motorists who were concerned after spotting the horse tied to the top of a flatbed trailer in Birmingham.
