The Scottish SPCA is appealing to kind hearted people to fundraise this month at the Ayr Pets at Home store.

Volunteers are urgently being sought to support Scotland’s animal welfare charity by raising funds in the store from Friday, September 14 – Sunday, September 16.

Marion Hainey, Manager at the Scottish SPCA’s centre in Ayr, said: “We’re calling out to all animal lovers with a bit of spare time from 14 – 16 September to get in touch.

"With your support we’ll be able to rescue animals in danger and distress, find animals new homes, investigate cruelty, help take people responsible for abuse and neglect to court and prevent cruelty through our free education programme for Scottish schools.

“We’ll also provide all volunteers with their very own fundraising pack with everything they need to take part.

“As a charity that receives no government or lottery funding, we rely entirely on donations to continue our work rescuing and rehoming thousands of animals in Scotland each year.”
