Reach and Rescue Save Dogs With RSPCA

How the adoption of the ‘creature reacher’ will help our canine friends

 

The RSPCA, as a society of volunteers and teams of rescuers across the country, serve to protect and prevent all animals from cruelty and harm. Helping to save and re-home over 100,000 animals of all kinds in the U.K., the RSPCA have adopted an award winning rescue technology to add to their capabilities, the Reach and Rescue Pole Kit with all the attachments. One of which, the Pro-Snare, which can assist with rescuing our beloved dogs from harm. 

For eons now dogs and canine related creatures have been our faithful compadres, keeping our feet warm at night and our homes safe during the day in exchange for a bit of food here and there and the odd pat on the head. Brilliant. An ancient agreement made by our Neanderthal and wolf ancestors to help us survive through a bit of a dry spell in the food supply some hundred thousand years ago or so.

 

Now, dogs are so massively integrated into our family lives we often forget that they aren’t actually human. But what about those dogs that lose their homes, go astray or are just sadly abandoned? What happens to them? Well, luckily we have an amazing society for the prevention of cruelty to our nations dogs and now Reach and Rescue have come up with an innovative way to help the RSPCA rescue our four-legged friends. And they call it the creature reacher!

 

 

Reach and Rescue produce the worlds longest and best-in-class Rescue pole systems and as such they were the rescue pole of choice for the RPSCA. Along with a vast array of attachments the society and its volunteers can rescue animals of all kinds including our countries stray dogs. With the ‘Pro-Snare’ attachment fitted to the ultralight carbon fibre rescue pole, the RSPCA Rescue teams across the country can seek out and rescue these poor pups.

Let’s have a look at the statistics

 

  • 9,000,000 Dogs are kept as pets in the U.K.
  • 102,456 dogs were handled by local authorities last year
  • 47,000 dogs were abandoned last year

 

 

The RSPCA has a big task when it comes to the country’s stray pets and abused animals. With over 500 vans across the country now fitted with a ‘creature reacher’ the teams can hopefully help these innocent animals when left left out to fend for themselves.

 

 

 

 

This is the Pro Snare, one of many attachments that the RSPCA could use from their tailor made Reach and Rescue - RSCPA kit bags to rescue dogs from danger or neglect. The Pro Snare is a lightweight, spring loaded device, perfect for retrieving dogs from a distance or even at height. As the Pro Snare has been designed to prevent any over tightening, it is comfortable for the poor pooch in question while still enabling the rescue team to effectively retrieve the animal.
