World Class Animal Rescue Equipment

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals was founded nearly two hundred years ago in 1824 in London. Since its inception, the RSPCA has influenced legislation for animal protection, spearheaded a globally recognised approach to animal rescue and now leads the way in the use of innovative rescue equipment by teaming up with Reach and Rescue in producing a bespoke rescue pole system, aptly dubbed the Creature Reacher. The rescue poles have since been installed into each of RSPCA’s 550 animal rescue vans nationally and are now being used in animal rescue efforts across the country.

So, Why Did The RSPCA Choose Reach and Rescue?

First and foremost, Reach and Rescue were the RSPCA’s Rescue Equipment of choice because of the strength, durability and success rate of the long reach telescopic rescue pole. Made from high grade carbon fibre, the pole is 17 metres in length once fully extended and is the strongest and most versatile of its kind in the world thanks to its array of interchangeable attachments. It is perfect for safely rescuing animals from height or hooking swans on water without undue risk of injury.

Secondly, the reliability of any rescue equipment is imperative when working with animals in dangerous rescue situations. When RSPCA sought out new animal rescue equipment, Reach and Rescue were the equipment specialist of choice. Along with over a decade of success stories, the Reach and Rescue pole is backed by a life time guarantee.

A Bespoke Range of Interchangeable Attachments

A huge draw for the RSPCA is the whole host of applicable interchangeable attachments in the bespoke animal rescue pole kit that the RSPCA would put to good use when rescuing animals out in the field. For instance, the rope blade and bird net as demonstrated in the above video satisfied a specific need to recover trapped or injured birds from dangerous heights and otherwise impossible to reach locations.

Another attachment designed for the RSPCA is the swan hook, a smooth hook attachment designed for to ensure efficient retrieval without risk of undue injury to the bird’s neck when capturing injured swans from ponds, canals and rivers.

No other safety equipment specialists deliver the array of relevant attachments for animal rescue organisations. Reach and Rescue are hands down the only supplier of such equipment and as such the RSPCA had little in the way choice when it came to their developing rescue capabilities.

Moving Forward

As pioneers in animal rescue, all 550 animal rescue officers in the RSPCA have now adopted the Reach and Rescue pole kit with their bespoke blue coloured poles, attachments and RSPCA branded kit bags.

Now, as world leaders and global influencers of animal rescue policy, the RSPCA will show similar organisations across the globe what is required to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to saving the lives of animals of all kinds.
