Ross Crawford 15th May, 2018

THE RSPCA in Birmingham is appealing for donations of blankets and newspapers to help look after the animals in its care.

Deborah Caffull, centre manager said: “At our centre we can accommodate 60 dogs, 160 cats and 32 rabbits.

“Last year we rehomed 1,115 animals, so as you can imagine our blankets get a lot of use and often have to be replaced.

“We also send some home with our animals to comfort them in a new environment.

“We are particularly low on blankets at the moment for our cattery and kennels. We need large blankets for the kennels and some smaller ones for our cats, preferably of a fleece or similar material as these wash really well.”

To donate to help the centre, or to ask about fostering opportunities contact the Birmingham Animal Centre on 0300 123 8585 or drop into the centre in Frankley.
