THE Ark Animal Rescue and Retirement Centre at North Somercotes is appealing for more food for its animals.
Laura Morrell, Assistant Manager at the Ark, said: “We are struggling with animal food. Owing to the recession donations have really dropped and the amount of mouths to feed never decreasing we are struggling to keep up.
“Any food donations would be greatly appreciated and put to good use.”
They need tinned or dry cat food, tins of Chappie dog food which they can give to dogs with sensitive stomachs and fresh carrots and vegetables for the rabbits and guinea pigs.
The Ark is funded by donations and funds raised by animal lovers. The more funds they raise the more animals they can help.
It is open every day between 12noon and 3pm including weekends and bank holidays.
