Staff and volunteers at Arbroath PDSA shop are urging local animal lovers to donate their unwanted items or time to help sick and injured pets.
The shop is desperate for good quality donations including CDs, DVDs, books and toys, as well as men’s and ladies clothes, shoes and accessories.
PDSA Shop Manager, Angela , said: “Perhaps your wardrobe is bulging with unworn clothes or your shelves are full of books you never read? Why not have a clear-out and donate your unwanted items to PDSA? As well as decluttering your home, you’ll be helping a very worthy cause at the same time.”
Angela is also appealing for local people to lend a hand and volunteer at the shop.
Angela added: “We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are passionate about pets and who can lend a hand.
“Volunteering for PDSA is fun and the skills you learn look great on any CV, plus you get to meet new people and make some friends along the way. No previous retail experience is needed, as full training is provided for all new volunteers. So, if you would like to help sick and injured pets, why not join our friendly volunteer team.”

PDSA encourages all supporters to sign up for Gift Aid, to help their donations go even further. Gift Aid allows PDSA to claim an additional 25 per cent of the value of each item sold, which helps raise over £1 million a year for the charity.
