A collection campaign by building society staff in aid of the Ark Animal Rescue and Retirement Home is to be extended due to its overwhelming success.
The Louth branch of Norwich & Peterborough (N&P) Building Society has been acting as a drop-off point for donations to The Ark Animal and Rescue Centre.
The Society has been collecting tinned and dried food, blankets, leads, collars, bedding and toys. Due to the great response by customers and members of the public in Louth, the campaign has been extended until the end of July.
Claire Corn, manager of the Louth branch of N&P, said: “The Ark Animal and Rescue Centre is a fantastic charity which we, as animal lovers, support wholeheartedly.
“We have had an amazing response to our collection so have decided to extend the deadline for people who would like to donate until the end of July. The Ark relies completely on donations from the public and the help they provide makes a real difference to the animals in their care.”
The Ark was established in 1986 and since then it has helped to rescue and re-home hundreds of unwanted and abandoned pets. Animals which are unsuitable for being adopted are given a permanent retirement home at the centre, on Donna Nook Road, North Somercotes.
The branch, on Mercer Row, is open for donations until the end of July from 9am-5pm Mondays to Friday, 9.30am-5pm on Thursdays, and from 9am until noon on Saturdays.
