Appeal for blankets in Lanarkshire


We are appealing to animal lovers to donate blankets and bedding for dogs in the care of our Lanarkshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre.

Blankets can be purchased from the centre’s Amazon wish list or via any other online retailer offering direct delivery to the centre. Items can also be dropped in to the centre reception daily between 1pm and 4pm.

Manager of the centre, Gillian Boyle, said: “We are currently in need of some sturdy blankets for the animals at the centre, like Roxy the Staffy who loves to keep warm and cosy at night.

Roxy hasn't had the best start in life and when she first arrived with us she was very fearful and showed some unwanted behaviours.

“Since being in our care Roxy has gradually improved and is learning to love life again. She absolutely adores playtime with either with her favourite humans or on her own. Soft toys seem to be a big favourite.

“Your donated blankets will help to keep her feeling happy and comfortable until we find her a new home.

“We can accept second hand blankets as long as they’re in good condition and laundered. We can also accept hand-knitted or crocheted blankets.

“Unfortunately, we are unable to accept duvets or pillows. If an animal rips one of these items, this can be a serious choking risk.

“We are so thankful for any donations you can spare so that we can continue to provide the best possible care for the animals at our centre.”

Blankets can be donated via the centre’s Amazon wish list here:

or sent from another online retailer that can deliver. Blankets can also be dropped in to the centre reception daily between 1pm and 4pm at Scottish SPCA Lanarkshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre on Bothwell Road, Hamilton, ML3 0SB.
