An animal rescue centre looking after more than 150 dogs, sheep and guinea pigs during lockdown has been given a boost.
Munlochy Animal Aid is still working to save animals across the north, but like many other charities, is struggling due to a lack of fundraising.
Now Inverness business Macleod Roofing has donated £500 to help the team continue their work.
Iona Nichol, founder of Munlochy Animal Aid, said the grant from was a “welcome” given the tough time.
She said: “Sandy Macleod from Macleod Roofing very kindly donated to our funds and I must say that it is a very welcome donation, as our fundraising this year has been cancelled as well as our instore collections, bookstalls and annual fete.
“We are very grateful to Macleod Roofing as we must keep money coming in regardless of what is going on around us to protect the pets and wildlife we care for.”
It costs around £14 a week to provide basic care to each animal.
Mr Macleod, managing director of Macleod Roofing added: “Lots of individuals and families are experiencing financial hardship and sometimes it is the pets which have to go. This places additional strain on charities like Munlochy Animal Aid. Iona and her team of volunteers work so hard caring and looking after the animals. Giving them financial support at this time was an easy choice for me.”
