RSPCA Cymru is warning of a surge in animals facing neglect and cruelty over the Christmas period.
Last year, the charity said it saw nearly 6,000 incidents reported over the festive period. 141 of those happening across Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
The charity has launched 'Kindness at Christmas Appeal' to help animals facing neglect and cruelty.
In the appeal, people are urged to help care for abused, neglected and sick animals.
The RSPCA across England and Wales expects to take in around 19,000 animals in need this December and January.
