TheSE two beauties owe their lives to you.

Snowy and Silver are just two of the many rescue animals who have benefited from the generosity of Sheffield people who donated to ‘Woody’s Legacy’, set up by RSPCA Sheffield.

Angelic-looking dog Snowy, aged three, was taken to the centre in agony with a stomach problem which was putting his life in danger.

His intestines had become twisted and he would have died without urgent veterinary intervention.

Snowy, a Staffy, was immediately operated on and is now recovering well.

It won’t be long before the centre will be starting the process to find this bubbly, endearing chap a new family.

Meanwhile, Silver, a gorgeous grey cat, was discovered on a freezing cold street.

He was unable to walk due to a dislocated hip which required emergency surgery.

Silver, who is thought to be about two years old, is now also on the mend, resting at Sheffield Animal Centre.

The treatment of Silver and Snowy has cost the Sheffield Animal Centre nearly £1,000, and has depleted the money left in Woody’s Legacy.

Stella White, general manager at RSPCA Sheffield, said: “We were only able to help these desperately ill or injured animals on this occasion because of the money donated to Woody’s Legacy.

“We ran an appeal with the help of The Star, to create a fund for animals in our care that needed veterinary treatment, either to be able to survive or walk again - and we named it ‘Woody’s Legacy’.

“This fund is now very low and we continue to appeal for people to replenish the fund so we can immediately respond to such dire cases.

“We know these are difficult financial times but every penny helps.”
