Scotland’s animal welfare charity is in with a chance of winning £50,000 as part of the Pets at Home Love to Give scheme.

Scottish SPCA Inverness Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre Elaine Floyd said:

“We don’t receive any government or lottery funding which means we rely entirely on the public to be able to continue our work rescuing and rehoming animals in desperate need of our help.

“This money will go straight towards the animals in our care, and will pay for vet treatment, toys, treats and much more to continue the everyday running of our centres.

“Last year our centre in Inverness cared for 1,016 rescued animals which highlights just how busy we are.

“Without these donations we would not be able to continue our vital work rescuing and rehoming abandoned and unwanted animals in Scotland.”

Each supporter can vote 5 times before voting closes on 31st May.

Case study

Snoop (pictured after treatment) was severely emaciated and seriously dehydrated when he was rescued by one of our inspectors.

He was immediately put on intravenous fluids and the vets were unsure if he would make it through the night.

When Snoop was admitted into our care he weighed a mere 5.85kg, by the time he was rehomed, he weighed a healthy 14.2kg.
