More Time to Re-home a Pet in Lanarkshire

04 June 2014

SCOTLAND, UK - The Scottish SPCA is extending the opening hours of its centre in Lanarkshire to give more locals the opportunity to rehome a pet.

The SPCA will open its doors to the public from 10am to 7pm every Thursday between 5 June and 25 September.

Staff at the centre, based on Bothwell Road in Hamilton, hope this will increase the number of people able to meet the many animals in their care.

Centre manager Peter Fleming said: "At the moment all our animal rescue and rehoming centres across Scotland are open to visitors from 10am to 4pm seven days a week and there are always members of staff on site to make sure our animals are looked after outwith these times.

"Our centre is the first to trial the extended opening hours which is very exciting.

"We are lucky that we already have a lot of support from the local community and so far this year we have rehomed over 550 pets to new owners.

"However, we are hopeful that allowing people to visit our centre later in the evening will result in even more animals finding new homes.

"We always have a wide variety of pets looking for new homes, from dogs, cats and rabbits to small rodents, birds and exotic creatures such as terrapins and snakes.

"Anyone thinking of taking on an animal is very welcome to drop in and see what our lovely pets have to offer."

The Lanarkshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre is based on Bothwell Road in Hamilton, ML3 0SB.
