RESIDENTS who can spare a few hours to help Bromsgrove’s Blue Cross have been urged to get in touch with the animal charity.
Bosses are looking for pet lovers who do not mind giving up some of their time for things such as helping out in one of its shops or cleaning out a kennel.
Volunteers help pets such as Salvador, a three-year-old male black and white cat, who is now looking for a home where he will get all the fuss he deserves after he was found all alone as a stray.
Bromsgrove’s Blue Cross has been celebrating what it calls ‘its best donation of all’ – the time given by its volunteers.
The animal charity, which has charity shops in Bromsgrove and Droitwich, claimed one hour of volunteering in a store could raise the funds needed to give life-saving vaccinations to a litter of eight abandoned puppies.
The Blue Cross charity shop on Bromsgrove High Street is currently recruiting for volunteers to help in both shops.
The charity’s rehoming centre in Wildmoor Lane, Catshill, is currently undergoing a multi-million pound rebuild and will be recruiting volunteers again later this year.
Pam Hoult, the Bromsgrove Blue Cross shop’s manager, said: “We’re looking for anyone who can spare even just a few hours a week to help us in the shop.
“We have a great team here and volunteering can be a fun way to meet new people.
“Working in the charity shop also goes a long way to help local pets in need.”
