While it's tempting to slip your pet a nibble of your food, please remember that it's not good for them. Eating some human foods can increase the risk of pancreatitis, kidney disease – not to mention food poisoning. If your pet eats any human food and shows signs of weakness, vomiting or any other unusual behaviour, contact your vet immediately.

Here are some tips from our friends at...

This is a story of two brave mamas and their extraordinary love and dedication. Willow and Angel did everything they could to protect their families.

They could have suffocated, succumbed to the elements, or starved to death. It could have been so much worse.

An extraordinary day doesn't necessarily mean finding and saving an animal. You too, can make an ordinary day extraordinary simply by...

Rats are very smart and love toys.

Look for rope and wood toys, as many plastic toys can't stand up to chewing by a determined rat!

Simple items like large cardboard mailing tubes, crumpled paper, paper bags, and cardboard boxes can also make wonderful toys.

You can find lots of ideas looking online or in pet stores.

It’s best to rotate your rats’ toys weekly – this will keep things...

Hi everyone! I’m Willow!

You might remember my story. My puppies were left all alone in that awful dark, suffocating calf pen.

I try not to think back to those moments, to a time where I thought there was no way out of this nightmare. My puppies were only three weeks old. I was worried I’d never see them again.

I could hear their little squeaks crying out for me. They needed me so badly. I...

This poor wee ginger boy was found down a deep pit at a construction site in Texas.

A member of the public called the local animal shelter who sent out rescuers. After an exhausting six hours, they were able to hoist Harvey out to safety. He was caked with mud, but otherwise in surprisingly good shape.

Back at the shelter, Harvey got a much-needed cleaning. Then rescuers checked him for an...

Hi guys, my name is Kobe, and I am one of the puppies my mama Willow refused to leave behind.

I try not to think about what it was like in that dark, cold, suffocating cardboard box back before I was saved by nice people like you. But sometimes I have flashbacks, and I get really scared.

For a moment there I didn’t think my siblings and I would make it. We could hear our mama outside,...

All dogs need exercise, no matter how big or small. Different breeds of dogs need different amounts of exercise but they all need to run and play every day. Leaving a dog in a back yard is not enough. Playing fetch or taking your dog to an off-leash park where he can run around safely is best.

As dogs get older, many may need less exercise. But you and your family can still make sure your...

If you’ve recently seen the story of Willow, you will know that she didn’t have a great start to her life [ Bit.ly Link ].

She was dumped next to a calf pen on an isolated country road. Inside the calf pen was a taped up cardboard box holding Willow’s five, tiny, defenseless three-week-old puppies.

The SPCA is almost entirely community funded so we rely on animal lovers like you to save...

Did you know that rabbits can be litter trained?

If you're planning on having an 'indoor bunny' you can train them to use a litter tray. Once they are spayed or neutered, they usually have less 'accidents' in the house. If your rabbits are not spayed or neutered then they are likely to urinate or spray to mark their territory.

As house rabbits run around they will sometimes do a few...

Dear animal lovers,

Our names are Petal and Poppet, and we are two kittens our mama Angel carried one by one to safety, even with a painful jaw injury.

While we huddled together and hid behind trees which towered over us like big, scary monsters, the chance for a happy life just seemed like a dream.

Our mama was in so much pain. She tried to hide it from us, but we knew she was...

Hi guys, my name is Randall, one of the puppies that my mama Willow refused to leave behind.

I was so nervous waiting in that dark, damp cardboard box, hoping for someone to come and rescue me. My body was squished up against my brothers and sisters so I could barely move, and it started to get harder to breathe.

My mama was so sad. We could hear her outside trying to find a way to save us....

More and more rabbits are being kept as house pets, and why not - cats and dogs live indoors too!

Having your pet rabbits in the house makes it easier to interact with them and it can encourage them to be more sociable. As well as this, it is easier for you to keep an eye on your rabbits for any changes in their health or behaviour if they live indoors. It also gives you peace of mind that...

Willow is a dedicated mama who refused to leave her puppies alone when they were taped up in a cardboard box and locked away to die.

Her story begins when an animal lover’s ordinary day turned extraordinary. A couple were driving down an isolated country road when they saw Willow.

She was pacing, distressed, and circling around a wooden calf pen.

Shut inside was a taped up cardboard box...
