Dog coats ap­peal

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

STAFF at an an­i­mal shel­ter are ap­peal­ing to the pub­lic to add an ex­tra Christ­mas present to their list and do­nate a dog coat for some of their four-legged res­i­dents who feel the cold.

The call comes from the RSPCA Block Fen An­i­mal Cen­tre, in Wim­bling­ton, which cur­rently has 34 dogs in its care.

A spokes­woman said: “Some of the smaller oc­cu­pants need a lit­tle ex­tra help keep­ing warm dur­ing the win­ter.

But with so many dogs in at one time, the cen­tre is in des­per­ate need of some new coats for them – es­pe­cially the medium-sized pooches.

Kirstyn Gaunt, deputy man­ager at the cen­tre, said: “We are cer­tainly all feel­ing the chill dur­ing this re­cent cold spell, and no one more than the smaller dogs at Block Fen.

“But with so many dogs in at the mo­ment we just seem to have run out of coats for them. The coats don’t have to be brand new, as long as they are warm and wa­ter­proof.”

The coats can be dropped off at the RSPCA cen­tre in Block Fen Drove, Wim­bling­ton, March.
