With over 300 animals in our care we are extremely busy at the GSPCA and are appealing for blankets and especially towels to help to provide them with bedding, to help with handling and drying off.

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said "We use hundreds of towels and blankets every day at the GSPCA and our 4 laundry machines are on around the clock."

"As towels and blankets are used they can get torn by the animals or for those used in isolation or quarantine areas may have to be disposed of for medical reasons."
