Little Billy is the subject of a special Rescue Me this week.
He is in urgent need of an X-ray and an operation to save his leg so that he can lead a pain-free life.
Staff at the centre say the puppy ended up with his painful injuries after being kicked many times.
As The RSPCA centre on Abbey Street, Derby, is a self-funded branch which relies on donations from members of the public, it is unable to fund the £500 needed for Billy’s treatment.
Now staff are launching an urgent appeal to raise the money.
Billy is a tan, nine-month-old Staffordshire bull terrier cross breed.
He is also severely underweight because he has not been fed a proper balanced diet.
To make a donation or to go and see Billy, pop in to the RSPCA at Abbey Street, Derby, or call the centre on 01332 344620.
