The south Bucks branch of the RSPCA cares for around 400 sick, injured and abandoned animals in our local area each year.  Finding them new homes and giving them a second chance is the main focus of our work.  Many are beloved pets from owners who can no longer care for them; others are rescued from abuse and neglect.
