Need a home? Tabby Abby and Scooby do!

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Front Page -

HAPPY New Year! We hope you’ve all had a joy­ous Christ­mas. We’ve re­ally ap­pre­ci­ated the gifts and do­na­tions you have been bring­ing to the an­i­mal cen­tre.

As South­port, Orm­skirk & Dis­trict Branch of the RSPCA – a sep­a­rately reg­is­tered char­ity, which re­ceives no gov­ern­ment or na­tional RSPCA fund­ing – all run­ning costs have to be met by gen­eros­ity of the pub­lic.

You play a mas­sive role in help­ing us to care for the cats and dogs whilst they wait for a new and lov­ing home, so thank you.

Some of our cats and dogs had their Christ­mas wishes come true too, by find­ing their for­ever homes.

How­ever, not every­one has been so lucky, so I’m go­ing to fo­cus upon them in this ar­ti­cle.

Scooby is a six year-old Ger­man shep­herd cross who came to us in Oc­to­ber 2018, as un­for­tu­nately his owner had died.

He’s a friendly, laid-back dog who loves be­ing around peo­ple.

He can get lonely on his own, so he’s look­ing for a nice fam­ily who will have a lot of time to spend with him.

All Scooby re­ally wants is an easy­go­ing home, where he can put his paws up at the end of the day.

Scooby is able to live with chil­dren who are aged 10-plus, an­other chilled-out dog, but no cats.

Abby is an eight year-old tabby cat who has sadly been with us since Fe­bru­ary 2018. Ten months is a long time in ken­nels.

She came into our care af­ter her elderly owner moved into shel­tered ac­com­mo­da­tion and hasn’t had much luck since.

Abby was very fright­ened when she first ar­rived, as didn’t un­der­stand why she wasn’t in her own home any­more.

She has since grown to trust us and we have seen a sweeter, more re­laxed side to her.

We are look­ing for an ex­pe­ri­enced adult only home for Abby, where she can set­tle in at her own pace, with­out any pres­sure.

Here at the cen­tre we al­ways try ex­tra hard to find our long stay an­i­mals lov­ing homes, be­cause we know they de­serve them and we find it very re­ward­ing when an an­i­mal fi­nally finds their for­ever home.

Now, mov­ing on to a lighter sub­ject.

We know that the New Year can of­ten bring about a tidy-up of any old or un­wanted items. We are al­ways grate­ful of any­thing you may do­nate to sell in our char­ity shop, or use here at the an­i­mal cen­tre.

From old kitchen ap­pli­ances to old tow­els, we will al­ways find a use for your un­wanted items.

We also know from watch­ing the Martin Lewis/Money Ex­pert pro­grammes on tele­vi­sion that there also lots of un­wanted Christ­mas pre­sents in cir­cu­la­tion. I know “it’s the thought that counts” but for those of you who didn’t take his ad­vice of not to buy them in the first place, don’t hold on to them, do­nate them to us and make that thought re­ally count.

We could re­ally make some use of them in our char­ity shop and turn them into much-needed care for our an­i­mals.

Abby the tabby has been with the an­i­mal cen­tre for 10 months

Scooby is a friendly and laid­back dog
