I take my hat off to RSPCA Inspectors, I wouldn't want to go into the situations they do and deal with people who have inflicted such barbaric cruelty on defenceless animals - that takes real courage and professionalism.
Sadly dealing with the most stomach-churning suffering is everyday work to these men and women. I dread to think what would happen if they weren't there to help.
These everyday heroes can only help thanks to donations from the public.
The RSPCA is launching a new campaign to help highlight the dangers many animals face and the risks charity workers who try to protect them also face. The charity rescue thousands of animals a year from abusive situations.
