A Christmas appeal to buy presents for the hunters of the so-called UK Cat Killer has already smashed its target.
The killer is believed to have mutilated more than 360 animals since October 2015, mainly in south east England.
Boudicca Rising and Tony Jenkins formed the South Norwood Animal Welfare and Liberty (SNARL) charity in response to the violence.
To say thank you to the pair, Julie Hill set up a fundraising page to buy them some "Christmas treats".
The page says the team "respond to calls at all times of the day and night, often driving hundreds of miles to collect suspected victims and organise post-mortems".
This is the second year Julie has set up a fundraising page for the team.
Writing on the page, she said: "I expected this to be a one off and that the person responsible for the murder and mutilation over 400 cats, pet rabbits, foxes and other wildlife would now be behind bars. Sadly, this is not yet the case."
She added: "If it were not for this couple, the brutal murders may not have even reached the press, let alone have become an ongoing criminal investigation (Operation Takahe)."
The fundraising page had raised £620 by Wednesday morning (November 22).
