Hundreds of abandoned pets could lose the only decent home they've ever had, because the RSPCA's running out of cash.
The animal charity's Preston Branch says it only has enough money left to last another 2 months.
The society says fewer people are now leaving money in their wills to help animals.
It believes unwanted cats and dogs may have just weeks left in its care, before facing an uncertain future.
The Preston branch of the RSPCA was formed a hundred and twenty six years years ago.
The society's now issuing an urgent appeal for money to ensure they remain for the foreseeable future.
