Pirate FM has learnt Cornwall's RSPCA centre is having one of its busiest years on record.

We are helping launch a campaign urging families to come forward and adopt an animal.

Jonathan Hogan is deputy manager at St Columb and tells us the story of a dog who arrived close to starving:
"There's always a need to re-home animals. The reason animals usually come in to us is usually through neglect or unwanted animals, so our purpose is to turn these animals around and hopefully find them a nice new home forever.

"We did have one, a staffy called Stanley, who was absolutely lovely. He came in very thin. We spent quite a lot of time, gave him a lot of love and affection, fed him a heck of a lot, turned him around and he's now gone to a new loving home."
