Volunteer and Help Scotland's Pets Find Loving New Homes

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Tuesday April 10 2018

The Scottish SPCA is appealing to kind hearted people across the Highlands to volunteer and help raise funds for abused, abandoned and injured pets in Scotland.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity is urging locals to get involved in its Rehoming Week, which runs from 7 - 13 May, by joining in with organised street collections and more.

Elaine Floyd, Inverness Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre Manager, said:

“Last year our centre took in and found loving new homes for 485 neglected, mistreated and unwanted pets and 2018 is proving to be just as challenging.

“During Rehoming Week, we have opportunities to fundraise throughout Scotland.

“It’s a great opportunity to spend time with friends, or to come along and meet new people as part of our Supporter Groups and help make a real difference to pets in Scotland.

“Door-to-door fundraising can be carried out between the Monday and Friday of Rehoming Week, while people can hold street collections in their local communities on the Saturday.

“You can volunteer with friends or join your local supporter group.

“Even if someone can only spare an hour or two, their time and efforts would be hugely appreciated.

“Giving up your spare time to help raise funds is an extremely kind gesture and one which will be of huge benefit to our work.”

Anyone who would like to help raise funds for the Scottish SPCA or join their local supporter group can contact the fundraising team on 03000 999 999 (option 4) or email fundraising@scottishspca.org.
