The RSPCA’s Bedford shop has been overwhelmed with donations since our appeal for help.
Isabel Martins, shop manager at the branch in Thurlow Street, said: “The RSPCA Bedfordshire North Branch would like to say a huge thanks – to bedfordtoday, the Times & Citizen and the wonderful people of Bedford – for the amazing response to our recent appeal for donations.
“On Saturday, March 1, we received as many donations in one day as we would normally receive in an entire week.
“This fantastic response will enable us to help more of the many local animals that desperately need us.
“We are fast coming up to our busiest time of the year – when we are unfortunately inundated with unwanted, and abandoned kittens.
“Last year we were taking in, on average, 4 kittens per day during the summer months – so regular donations are vital in helping us fund the support required.”
Getting your male and female cats neutered will make a huge difference too.
She added: “So, thank you Bedford - and please, please, please keep the donations coming in!”
