PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! The RSPCA has revealed that the number of dog cruelty cases reported to them since the start of Covid pandemic has surged to SIX A DAY across the North East. And the animal charity experts expect the number to rise still further over the summer. New figures released as part of the animal welfare charity’s Cancel Out Cruelty campaign show that despite being man’s best friend there were 1,149 reports of dog cruelty in Durham, 936 in Tyne and Wear and 213 in Northumberland, a grim total of 2,299. Across the UK there were 44,427 reports of dog cruelty made to the RSPCA involving 92,244 dogs last year. With more people becoming dog owners during lockdown the charity is concerned the number of cruelty incidents involving canines will increase - particularly in the summer when it traditionally sees a surge in calls to its cruelty line.

The RSPCA receives around 90,000 calls to its cruelty line every month involving all animals but in the summer (July and August) calls rise to 134,000 a month and reports of cruelty soar to 7,600 each month - a heart-breaking 245 every day.

To help prevent suffering the RSPCA has launched its Cancel Out Cruelty campaign which aims to raise funds to keep its rescue teams on the frontline saving animals in desperate need of help as well as raise awareness about how we can all work together to stamp out cruelty for good. RSPCA dog welfare expert Dr Samantha Gaines said: "Every year, we see many dogs coming into our care bearing the physical and mental scars that were inflicted at the hands of the very people who were meant to keep them safe and love them unconditionally.

Perhaps there is boredom or pressures at home with children being off school which can make existing difficulties magnified. "This year the cost of living crisis has added a further dimension and we believe we could see people really struggling to care for their pets which may lead them to lash out or could see more animals than ever being abandoned or given up. "All these factors mean that we need the public's support more than ever to help Cancel Out Cruelty. As a charity, we are bracing to tackle a summer of suffering but we cannot do this without your help and we rely on public support to carry on our rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming work."
