SPCA appeals for kind hearts to help abused animals

The Scottish SPCA is appealing to kind hearted people in Ayrshire to help raise funds for abused, abandoned and injured animals by volunteering.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity is urging locals to get involved in its Rehoming Week, which runs from 18 - 24 March, by shaking a collection tin in their area.

Marion Hainey, manager of the charity’s Ayrshire and South West Scotland Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre, said: “Every year our centre cares for hundreds of animals and 2013 is proving to be just as challenging.

“During Rehoming Week we have opportunities to fundraise throughout Ayrshire and we’d be very grateful if locals can get behind our appeal and help. Even if someone can only spare an hour or two to shake a collection tin, their time and efforts would be hugely appreciated.”

Anyone who would like to help can contact the fundraising team on 03000 999 999 or email fundraising@scottishspca.org.
