We've all seen them; those television programmes that follow an animal charity around as they rescue our furry friends from various predicaments. Avid viewers will have seen the episodes where the charity encounters a cat in a car engine bay, or a squirrel that has somehow managed to get itself wedged within the mechanicals of a car.
