With Spring comes the growing season and the GSPCA are appealing for funds to help towards a new mower for the Shelter.

With over 3 acres of grounds there is a lot of grass at the Animal Shelter in St Andrews.

We have been offered a fantastic machine for only £350 and we would love it if someone would be kind enough to help towards it.

The machine would be used to cut the fields and grounds where we walk and exercise the dogs as well as the areas where our resident ducks reside on our pond.

We are also always looking for volunteers that can help with gardening around the Animal Shelter and if you are interested you can find out more by clicking here.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said 'We have recently been offered a fantastic mower for only £350 and with our current machine old and tired we are looking to update it and would love someone to sponsor it.'

'We have many items on our wish list to help around the Shelter as well as the animals in our care and we are always over joyed when we are offered help towards items we are in need of.'

'However it's not just about donations as we really value all the time our volunteers give to help around the GSPCA and if there is anyone that enjoys the outdoors and gardening then we would love to hear from them.'

If you can help towards a new mower please call Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager on 01481 257261, email or use the paypal link below and reference 'Mower Appeal'.  Thank you for your support
