Spooktacular Volunteer Opportunities With The Scottish SPCA

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Thursday October 5 2017

The Scottish SPCA are looking for volunteers to take part in their national Halloween collection at Pets At Home Stores.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity has permission to hold collections, stalls and fundraise in all Scottish Pets at Home stores from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 October.

Inverness Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre Manager Elaine Floyd said,

“The Halloween event is one of my favourite.

“There’s always a huge amount of energy shown by our volunteers who really get into the spirit by dressing up and getting into the Halloween theme.

“You can help by holding bake sales, dressing up in the Halloween spirit, and even bring your canine companion along too (Halloween nicknames encouraged!)

“We receive no government or lottery funding and rely entirely on the generosity of the public.

“Events like these go a long way to helping us rescue more abused, abandoned and injured animals in Scotland.”
