So about a month ago we began a collection for the animals at the RSPCA shelter (Newcastle branch). This was something we'd thought of doing a few months ago and finally found some time to make it happen in the middle of July. The collection itself ran for just under 3 weeks and we had a couple of 'drop off points' in our local area. Big thanks to Doggy Delish Deli in North Shields and Children of the Revolution in Tynemouth for giving up space in their stores for your donations.
As a North Shields dog walker we really wanted to help a local dog charity and also the RSPCA was the place we got our own dog, Buzz from in 2016 so it made sense to choose them as the benefactor of our efforts. We also walk dogs for Louise (hi Louise!) who is in charge of the local adoptions for the charity so if we needed another reason to choose the RSPCA then that was it!
We really appreciate those people who made the effort and dropped things in - the dogs will get the benefit of the bedding, blanket, food, toys, treats, leads and everything else for a long time to come I'm certain.
Thanks again and look out for this collection next summer as we are planing on doing it all over again.
Please share this post as it helps raise awareness for the charity. If you'd still like to donate just pop your donations into the Whitley Bay branch of the RSPCA and mark your donations with the word 'kennels' and it will be taken up to the cats and dogs.
Here we are putting some of your donations into the RSPCA van the other day and here's one of the dogs who's looking for a new home already enjoying one of the toys.
