The Scottish SPCA was delighted to welcome local MP Ian Murray out on a trip in the Edinburgh area with animal rescue officer Sarah Auldsmith.

MP Ian MurrayWe showcased our work by taking Mr Murray out to a number of animal rescues to show him what goes on behind the scenes on a day to day basis.

Chief Executive Kirsteen Campbell said, “We were delighted when MP Ian Murray expressed his interest in finding out more about what our frontline staff do on a day to day basis.

“It’s great to be able to showcase the hard work done by the team as our frontline staff have by no means an easy job.”
