The Scottish SPCA is appealing to kind hearted people in Glasgow to help raise funds for abused, abandoned and injured animals by volunteering.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity is urging locals to get involved as part of Scottish Animal Week, which runs from 5-11 September. by shaking a collection tin in their area.

Anna O’Donnell, manager of the Glasgow animal rescue and rehoming centre, said: “Last year our centre took in over 1,700 animals and we have already had 1,100 new arrivals this year so we really need the support of the public more than ever.

“As an animal welfare charity, we receive no government or lottery funding and rely on the generosity of animal lovers to continue our vital work.

“During Scottish Animal Week we have opportunities to fundraise throughout the Glasgow area and we’d be really grateful if locals can get behind our appeal and help.

“Door-to-door fundraising can be carried out between Monday and Friday, while people can hold street collections on the Saturday.

“We encourage people to have a bit of fun and some of our past volunteers have dressed up in costumes or taken a canine friend along with them.

“Even if someone can only spare an hour or two to shake a collection tin, their time and efforts would be hugely appreciated.”
