World Spay Day
Four Cumbrian Animal Charities are working together to increase awareness about the importance of neutering your cat. This follows a year in which all four animal charities were overwhelmed with the huge number of unwanted and unplanned litters of kittens in our region. Recent research has shown that 70% of litters in the UK are unplanned which can be solved through timely neutering of your pet. Oak Tree Animals' Charity, Animal Rescue Cumbria, Animal Concern Cumbria and RSPCA Westmorland have focussed their campaign to coincide with World Spay Day which, this year is on 25th February 2020.
Oak Tree Animals' Charity and RSPCA Westmorland run voucher schemes supporting cat neutering for those struggling financially. Animal Concern Cumbria are also running a neuter voucher scheme on 25th February. For information about this support please contact the individual charity concerned in your area of Cumbria.
Pets at Home Cheque Presentation on 5th Feb 2020.
In respect of volunteers working alongside Pets at Home staff during their Christmas fundraising event last December.
We received a cheque for £2,273.07 and were chuffed to bits.
I would like to say a Big Thank You to everyone that came to visit our stall to help us make the event so successful. Also thanks to our volunteers and to Pets at Home staff for their help and support during the event. We always enjoy or visits to the store and we love meeting all sorts of wonderful dogs - they all seem to enjoy their visits too.
