Cat and dog food donated to RSPCA

Wednesday, 2nd March 2011

The Hucknall branch of Co-Operative Travel has collected an abundance of cat and dog food for charity.

Donations made will go towards the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), reports

Cat food and dog food collected will be used to provide sustenance to abandoned animals.

Along with pet food, other donations that have been made include blankets, toys, bed and feeding bows.

The annual initiative is now in its 13th year and this most recent drive has been hailed a success.

It was run by by Jo Maddock, who is manager for the RSPCA’s Nottingham and Nottinghamshire branch, and Wendy McLaren, a travel-money adviser at Co-operative Travel.

As well as collecting pet food, the organisers were also asking that people donate their unwanted foreign coins, as these were then changed into sterling and donated to the RSPCA.

The RSPCA was founded in 1824 by a group of twenty-two reformers led by Richard Martin MP William Wilberforce MP and the reverend Arthur Broome.
