Make a difference to animals like Riley

A gift to Bristol A.R.C. this Christmas will help to ensure animals like Riley get the second chance they deserve.

When Riley was signed over to our care, his fur was so matted that he couldn't climb or down stairs and did not even try standing up to pee - he simply wet himself lying down. Even bending his head down to eat or drink was painful for Riley. After a great deal of care (including a much needed haircut!) Riley's true personality soon emerged. He was a happy, playful dog once again. He has now found his forever home, where he enjoys daily brushes with his new family to keep his fur in tip top condition.

It is thanks to supporters like you that we are able to give dogs like Riley the care they deserve.
