We’re delighted to be partnering with the Blue Cross in Andover to help support pet owners at this difficult time. Charities such as the RSPCA are reporting that more pets are being deserted or left at shelters because people are struggling to look after them. Pets are so important in the lives of families and for some they can be their main companion, but when faced with impossible decisions such as to heat or eat, or which bill to pay, it may seem like there is no other option.
You can help by donating pet food and treats to the Blue Cross Shop on the Andover High Street – in fact many of you have already done so as we are picking up the first collection on Monday!
This campaign is a national initiative of the Blue Cross and we are grateful for the local shop manager Paula Plain and Cllr Iris Anderson for involving us.
