Can you rattle a tin to help abused and injured animals?

The Scottish SPCA is appealing to kind-hearted people in all parts of East Dunbartonshire to help raise funds for abused, abandoned and injured animals.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity is urging locals to get involved this Scottish Animal Week, which runs from August 31 to September 5, by shaking a collection tin in their area.

Anna O’Donnell, manager of the animal rescue and rehoming centre in Cardonald, said: “Last year we took in nearly 2,500 animals and we need the support of the public more than ever as we receive no government or lottery funding.

“People can dress up in costumes or take a canine friend along with them.”
