RSPCA wants to keep animals warm
Tuesday, 1st June, 2010
The RSPCA is in desperate need of second-hand blankets.
With winter now well and truly here, everyone needs a warm bed and that includes the animals at the South road shelter.
Elaine Colbeck, an animal attendant at the shelter, is asking for donations of any old blankets, towels, sheets or pillows.
Ms Cobeck said anything that will keep animals warm on cold nights would be very welcome.
Over the years locals have donated lots of blankets but, she said, these get destroyed very quickly due to dogs chewing them or playing with them.
All donations would be greatly appreciated and may be dropped off at the RSPCA.
