Scottish SPCA welcomes MSP Bill Bowman to Dundee Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre

The Scottish SPCA was delighted to welcome local MSP Bill Bowman to their animal rescue and rehoming centre in Dundee.

Bill BowmanWe introduced Mr Bowman to a number of animals in our care whilst providing him with a behind the scenes tour.

Chief Executive Kirsteen Campbell said, “We were delighted to welcome Bill Bowman to our centre here in Dundee.

“It’s great to be able to showcase the fabulous work done by the team here at the centre and talk more widely about the Society’s aims from increasing the maximum prison sentence for animal cruelty to tackling the illegal puppy trade.

“Our centre here in Dundee has real community support and it’s great to be able to meet with community representatives like Bill.”
Bill Bowman MSP said, “It was a pleasure to be invited to the local Scottish SPCA rehoming centre here in Dundee. It was a very informative visit and the team are doing a great job working to protect and find animals new homes in the Angus and Tayside area.

“Lexie the Staffordshire bull terrier was a delight to meet, she is a very sweet girl and will be going to her new forever home soon.

“The Scottish SPCA has a lot of great and exciting projects, and it is great to be able to support the organisation. Their key message on the run up to Christmas is don’t buy puppies from puppy dealers, do your research.

“The puppy trade is a multimillion pound industry which puts profit ahead of animal welfare and I support the Scottish SPCA and Operation Delphin who are dedicated to put an end to the illegal trade.”
