An­i­mal charity ap­peal for help

Hamilton Advertiser - - NEIGHBOURHOOD NEWS -

Hamil­ton’s an­i­mal res­cue cen­tre is ask­ing pet lovers to con­sider be­com­ing fundrais­ing vol­un­teers.

The Scot­tish SPCA on Both­well Road is urg­ing peo­ple to get in­volved in Re­hom­ing Week be­tween May 7-13.

And staff want the pub­lic to help raise funds for abused, aban­doned and in­jured an­i­mals.

Pe­ter Flem­ing, man­ager at the cen­tre, said:“last year we took in and found lov­ing new homes for 1181 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.”

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