Can you spare some time to help the Scottish SPCA?

The Scottish SPCA are appealing to the kind hearted people of Aberdeenshire to help at the Pets at Home event to raise vital funds for abused, abandoned and injured animals in their care.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity is looking for anyone who can spare even an hour of their time; it’s a great activity to do with friends, work colleagues or come along and meet new people.

Aberdeen Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre Manager Graeme Innes said, “From the 17 May to 13 June, locals can pop down to the Aberdeen or Inverurie Pets at Home stores where they will get the chance to meet Scottish SPCA volunteers, supporters, staff members and dogs from the Scottish SPCA’s animal rescue and rehoming centres.

“We are encouraging the public to get into the fundraising spirit by dressing up in fancy dress, taking a four legged friend along or bringing some baked goodies to encourage donations.”

Graeme then went on to say, “The Scottish SPCA receives no government or lottery funding and we rely on the kindness and generosity of the public to continue our work. We would be extremely grateful if anyone would like to donate their time and help us raise vital funds.”

Regular volunteer Heather Rawles said, "I have found that people in Aberdeenshire are very supportive of charities, and there is great respect for the work that the Scottish SPCA do!

“I use fundraising as a way to say thank-you to the Scottish SPCA for the animals that I have rehomed over the years.”
