THE SCOTTISH SPCA are appealing to the country’s animal lovers, in an attempt to get pet lovers to donate food to its Glasgow and Lanarkshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centres.

The SSPCA has said that their staff at their Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centres, in Cardonald and Hamilton, look after a large number of animals, meaning that food supplies are in constantly high demand.

Superintendent Sharon Comrie is appealing to kind hearted locals to donate. She said: “Glasgow and Lanarkshire are our biggest and busiest centres and they're going through a lot of food at the moment.

“This year has been incredibly challenging, as both centres have already taken in over 1,300 dogs between them, and tinned meat donations would be fantastic.

“Our Lanarkshire centre is also looking after lots of small pets and would be very grateful for fresh fruit and vegetables to give them.

“Carrots, greens and fruits for the rabbits and guinea pigs to munch on would be great while the birds really enjoy eating peppers.

“Anyone who hands in food is more than welcome to have a look round and say hello to some of the animals they'll be helping us feed.”

The SSPCA’s Lanarkshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre is situated at Bothwell Road in Hamilton, ML3 0SB. Whilst the Glasgow Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre is situated at 125 Kinnell Avenue in Cardonald, G52 3RY. Donations can be handed in seven days a week between 10am and 4pm.
