Special visit for rescue centre
The Inverness Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre received a visit from new Scottish SPCA chief executive Kirsteen Campbell yesterday.
Currently 63 animals being looked after there are waiting for new forever homes.
Centre manager Elaine Floyd said: “It’s been fantastic showing Kirsteen around our centre and introducing her to our team.
“While Kirsteen was here she got to meet the lovely Duke, a lurcher, who after 288 days in our care is now getting ready to go to his forever home.
“Duke is just one of 277 animals that we’ve rehomed in 2017.”
Ms Campbell joins Scotland’s animal welfare charity at a time when calls to its helpline have risen to an all-time high.
