RSPCA stands for the Royal Society for the Prevention (предотвращение) of Cruelty (жестокость) to Animals. It began in 1822 with the Animal Protection Act, which made cruelty to cows, horses and sheep illegal (незаконный). It is the oldest animal welfare (благоденствие) organization in the world. In 1840, Queen Victoria gave her permission (разрешение) for the organization to be called the RSPCA.
The RSPCA has got 328 inspectors. They investigate (расследуют) cases of cruelty to animals, collect money, pay visits to schools and other places and rescue thousands of animals every year.
There are also RSPCA hospitals and clinics. They treat (лечат, излечивают) over 270,000 animals every year, including wild animals. The RSPCA helps to find homes for over 80,000 animals a year! The RSPCA encourages (поощряет) pet owners to take proper care of their animals. It also works to protect farm and wild animals that are used for research (исследования, опыты).
You can phone the RSPCA at any time, day or night, about an animal that is injured (быть раненым) or treated cruelly. The RSPCA is a charity and is always working to raise money to help animals in need. Animal lovers can help by becoming volunteers (доброволец), or simply by making sure all the animals around them are safe, happy and healthy.
