The RSPCA has launched an investigation after a three week old lamb had its ears cut off in Nottinghamshire.
The RSPCA is warning pet owners in a Nottinghamshire village to be vigilant after a series of suspicious cat deaths.
After 50 years the RSPCA Birmingham animal centre is closing its doors for the last time today.
The RSPCA is warning pet owners in a Nottinghamshire village to be vigilant after a series of suspicious cat deaths. Over the last month three cats in Bilsthorpe have died after ingesting anti-freeze.
Several others have also gone missing. Some pet owners believe the cats are being deliberately poisoned, and want those responsible caught.
Cat owner Emma Davenport's two cats were killed after being poisoned with anti-freeze.
Rescue centres in the central region are calling on cat owners to be responsible and get their animals neutered.
The advice comes as many shelters close their doors to the rising number of unwanted kittens.
The bodies of four Hungarian Vizslas were found washed up at a pumping station in Lincolnshire on Wednesday May 9th.
The dogs were between four to six months old and it is thought they had been in the water for around two days.
In the same week two others were seen being dumped in the Newstead Park area of Mansfield and were taken into RSPCA care.
A member of the public had seen a silver 4x4 vehiclepull up and the dogs were then thrown out of the vehicle and the driver drove off.
Those two dogs were around six months old.
Last night two more Vizslas were found abandoned and tied to a For Sale sign in the Farndon Road area in Newark.
They are now being cared for by fosterers.
"We very rarely have to deal with Hungarian Vizslas as they are a rare bred and one which people will pay a lot of money for, which makes it more curious that someone would dump them.
"The RSPCA is clearly very keen to hear from anyone who may have owned any of these dogs, or perhaps knows of a breeder who has suddenly got rid of dogs of this description and age in a short space of time."
"These are blatant cases of animal cruelty and we would urge anyone with information to contact the RSPCA cruelty line on 0300 1234 999." Inspector Chris Shaw
