Engelbert Helps Launch Leicester RSPCA £1 million appeal
Leicester’s Woodside Animal Centre has launched the biggest appeal in the history of the Leicestershire RSPCA.
It aims to raise £1 million through the “Care 4 Paws” appeal to build an onsite veterinary suite that will revolutionise the way animals are cared for at the centre.
The Scudamore Road centre, which takes in thousands of dogs, cats and other small animals each year, made the announcement at its annual gala day yesterday. (21)
The suite will reduce distressing and painful transportation to and from local vets.
The appeal has the backing of Leicestershire singing legend and patron Engelbert Humperdinck.
In a video message from his California home played to guests at the gala day, he said:” Animals have always played a very large part in our family and I certainly hope you will be able to raise the necessary funds to build an onsite veterinary suite at the animal centre.
“All of Leicestershire, please get together and make this dream a reality. Thank you.”
Woodside’s Branch Manager, Gary Wheway said: “The Care 4 Paws Appeal will ensure our centre continues to provide the best animal care possible, but we need £1million to turn our vision into a reality and we hope that the public of Leicestershire will support us to reach this target.”
“We simply cannot sustain the year on year increases in incoming cruelty case animals and the essential veterinary costs.”
He added: “These innocent victims of cruelty and neglect need our help and as Leicestershire's main animal welfare charity we need to tackle this growing problem head on, by reducing the overall treatment costs while giving the highest possible standard of animal care.”
The vet suite will make animal treatment at Woodside more cost effective, so the centres resources can go further and help to treat even more animals.
Woodside takes in, on average, more than 2,000 animals every year including the RSPCA Inspectorate cruelty cases.
They are consistently one of the top RSPCA rehoming centres, with one of the lowest animal return rates, in the UK.
All proceeds from the gala day, where the Lord Mayor of Leicester,Councillor John Thomas made the appeal’s announcement, will go to the appeal.
Mr Wheway added: “Although Woodside Animal Centre is proud to be part of the RSPCA, we are a separate self-funding charity and we are reliant on the donations we gratefully receive from the generous people of Leicestershire
“As an animal charity we receive no government funding.”
