Sheffield RSPCA fundraising appeal

Monday, April 15, 2002

Meg Munn MP, Labour and Co-operative Party MP for Sheffield Heeley, has visited Sheffield RSPCA in Spring Street as the result of an appeal from Kathryn Whitlam, the Honorary Chairman of this independent charity.

Meg Munn, herself a fierce animal lover, was contacted by the Sheffield RSPCA who are concerned that proposals for an Inner Relief Ring Road will mean an end to the existing Animal Shelter.

Kathryn Whitlam explains "If the Inner Relief Ring Road goes ahead as shown on the present provisional plan we will not be able to remain where we are as a large proportion of our present site will be taken.

"To build an animal shelter to accommodate the number of animals we look after at the present and to have the facilities we require will cost, we understand, over one million pounds (in addition to the cost of acquiring a site if this proves necessary). Although this is a massive sum we have not been put off and we will continue with our efforts and fund raising in the hope that the people and businesses of Sheffield will support us."

Sheffield RSPCA, which is totally self-funding and receives no money from the national RSPCA, is predominantly concerned with helping domestic animals in the Sheffield area. It has accommodation for 80 dogs plus puppies and 71 cats plus kittens and is usually full.

Speaking from the Spring Street premises, Meg, owner of three cats herself, said

"I am very impressed at the vital work being done by Sheffield RSPCA. It was shocking to see how many cats and dogs are abandoned. I urge Sheffield people to put their hands in their pockets and support this work."
