City MP Iain Stewart spent time with the RSPCA team to learn more about their work and the key animal welfare issues in Milton Keynes.
On Friday, the team showed him some of the pressing animal welfare issues in the city, including the pressures they are facing from the overpopulation of cats and dogs.
The MP for Milton Keynes South said: “This was a real eye opener and I pay tribute to the excellent work that the team at the RSPCA do daily.
“They provide a fantastic service to the local community and I urge people to show their support in whatever way they can.”
The RSPCA is facing a crisis of too many cats and dogs in desperate need of their help and also homes not yet enough good homes being available.
Sadly many animals are still badly treated and while the RSPCA can rescue these animals it is important new owners come forward to offer them a second chance of a home.
Mr Stewart added: “If we all do our bit we can make a real difference to animal welfare and I know this is an important area of concern to many of my constituents.
“Thank you to Inspector Sue Haywood for showing me around on the day.”
