At the start of the year, a young cat named Ripley was discovered in a heartbreaking state—her back was covered with extensive wounds, she was frail from malnutrition, and her spirit worn. For two weeks, Ripley was nursed at the RSPCA vets before transferring to our care. Requiring twice-daily treatments in a meticulously clean environment, the RSPCA Manchester and Salford Branch animal centre became her sanctuary—a place of comfort and love created by our dedicated team of staff and volunteers.

Ripley’s transformation unfolded with each passing day and as her wounds began to heal, so too did her spirit. When the time was right, Ripley was placed in a foster home, where she could take all the time her back needed to heal. As she began to feel increasingly comfortable, Ripley’s true personality emerged. Described as playful, affectionate, and endlessly curious, Ripley has found joy in the simple pleasures of life. Whether chasing balls, playing tag and run, cuddling on laps, or gazing out the window, she has embraced each moment with great enthusiasm.

But Ripley’s story is not just about the remarkable resilience of animals, or the horrible cruelty that is inflicted on such precious souls, it is also testament to the power of compassion and generosity. It’s because of supporters like you that animals like Ripley are given a second chance at happiness. Your donations make it possible for us to provide the vital care and resources needed to mend the broken bodies and spirits of animals in need. Without your support, our ability to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome animals like Ripley would be severely limited.

So, from the depths of our hearts, we thank you and appeal to you to share the Raise the Roof Crowdfunder appeal with your friends, family and colleagues so we can continue to transform the lives of animals like Ripley and inspire hope and healing in the hearts of all who come into our care in the future. Together, we can continue to make a difference—one animal at a time.
