Rescued, given veterinary treatment, cared for by volunteers with love and
kindness, then given a second chance in a loving new home.
abandoned this very young rabbit was found by a walker in a dreadful state,
near death, in woods on an icy morning at Easter. Taken straight to the vet
it was thought there was no chance of survival, but once clean, warm, fed,
watered and given lots of tender care he amazingly came round. Toby –
the Easter Bunny - has now been found a loving home.
Basil, the Crimson Rosella, spent
10 years locked up in a tiny, filthy cage with little food or water before
being rescued. Malnutrition had left him almost totally blind and his little
body was almost bare of feathers except for his red crimson head. In foster
care, Basil now interacts with all his bird friends, has fallen in love with
a yellow cockatiel and sings songs. He is certainly making up for lost time!
THESE ARE THE LUCKY ONES,
THEY HAVE FOUND CARING HOMES
The RSPCA Buckinghamshire South Branch, which covers from
Burnham to Thame and Chesham to Marlow, helps to rescue and rehome animals
in the area. Some animals need our help because they have been badly treated
or abandoned, others because their owners can no longer care for them. We
give them any necessary veterinary treatment and board them until we can
find them a safe, happy new home. We also give advice to owners and, if
necessary, help with the cost of veterinary treatment.
– the survivor

Sootie was in a road traffic accident and received a very bad leg injury
where one leg was stripped to the bone. This amazing cat has survived,
attending the vet for dressings three times a week for three months. His
next visit is in June and he hopes to be signed off at last!
Sootie is only one year old with a friendly temperament but HATES VETS!!
Spot – the lucky one
19 Feb 08
a very cold night in February a puppy was found tied to a post on a sports
ground with his toys, blanket, food and bowls in a carrier bag attached to
his collar – but no name! Luckily he was found early in the evening, taken
to the vet where it was found he had a broken leg and was 5 months old. We
named him Spot. With treatment from the vet and lots of tender loving care
from his fosterers he soon recovered and has been rehomed with his new
family. He is one of the lucky ones.
A legacy or bequest to the RSPCA
Buckinghamshire South Branch
...will provide crucial
funds – we could not carry out our work without such generous support.
You can do this by making a Will or by adding a codicil
(a document which specifies alterations to your Will). If you are making a
will, please remember that the RSPCA Buckinghamshire South Branch and all
the other RSPCA branches are separately registered charities. So, if you
would like the animals in your local area to benefit, we would respectfully
suggest that your legacy reads:
I give the sum of £………. (or specify a share of
residue) to the RSPCA Buckinghamshire South Branch, registered charity
number 243352, The Secretary, South Bucks RSPCA, PO Box 850, Amersham, Bucks, HP6
9GW, for its general
purposes and I declare that the receipt of the Honorary Treasurer or other
proper officer of the said RSPCA branch for the time being shall be a full
and sufficient discharge for the said legacy.
Please note that a Will or Codicil needs to be properly
witnessed, and you should obtain legal advice.
Gifts to registered charities are generally exempt from
inheritance and capital gains taxes. A gift to the RSPCA Buckinghamshire
South Branch would therefore greatly benefit the local animals with minimum
burden to your estate.
