AVONVALE Veterinary Centres is again appealing to generous people to help make Christmas special for animals in need.
Its annual Christmas Shoe Box Appeal will this year support Avon Cat Rescue in Welford, Pawprints Dog Rescue in Rugby and Evesham Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue.
There are three ways people can show their support for the appeal. They can purchase items from Avonvale which will be put into a box for them, they can donate items to go into a box, such as unopened bags or tins of food, pet treats, collars or toys, or they can fill a box themselves with suitable items.
All boxes and donations can be dropped off at any of Avonvale’s surgeries and will be delivered to the charities in plenty of time for them to be opened and their contents enjoyed on Christmas Day.
Avonvale’s group practice manager Kate Webb said: “Most of us spoil our pets but the animals we want to help through our appeal have very little, if anything at all, so we really want to do what we can to brighten up their Christmases.
“Last year we were truly overwhelmed by how generous people were and we hope that this year is even better.
“We have surgeries in Warwick, Kenilworth, Stratford, Heathcote, Southam, Wellsbourne and Cubbington and they’re all taking part in this Christmas appeal, so you can just choose which is the most convenient for you to make your donation.”
