Amblecote shoppers urged to swell cat charity's kitty

First published in News

AMBLECOTE shoppers are being asked to dig deep and swell the Christmas kitty of animal charity Wellcat.

The Black Country-based organisation is holding a collection at Sainsbury's on Sandringham Way on Sunday December 9 and Sunday December 16.

Pauline Beasley, from Wellcat, said: “The number of cats and kittens coming into the centre is at a record high and as very few are finding new homes, we are overrun with abandoned pets.

“This has put a huge strain on finances and we could face closure by the end of next year unless extra funds are raised to meet running costs. Vet’s bills alone are £2,000 a month.
