Pets'n'Vets in Glasgow is expanding a food bank initiative for pets thanks to the generosity of clients and locals.

The success of the scheme at Pets’n’Vets’ Roundhouse Veterinary Hospital in Pollokshaws will see two more food banks, where people can donate dog and cat food, along with other essential pet items, being opened at its practices in Dumbarton Road and Hairmyres. 

The initiative supports the Scottish SPCA, which has 35 food banks across Scotland which they hope to increase to at least 100 before the end of the year.

Ross Allan, clinical director at the Roundhouse hospital, said: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the kindness of locals and clients who have donated very generously. It’s been such a success that the food bank has overflowed with donations several times. 

“I’m confident we can match this success at our Dumbarton Road and Hairmyres practices with any donations of dog and cat food greatly appreciated by those who are struggling to feed their pets.” 

Scottish SPCA chief executive Kirsteen Campbell said: “The support we have received from the Pets’n’Vets Roundhouse practice has helped us enormously. 

“Having a foodbank at their hospital gives easy access to those pet owners who might be struggling. It is so important to work collectively for animal welfare to keep people and their pets together. 

“Having foodbanks and community projects supporting our Pet Aid service, which is now available in 35 places nationwide, means we can provide vital pet supplies to people when they need them most. Our inspectors work directly with pet owners, too, providing support to hundreds of people in their own home.

“Through our animal helpline and inspectors, the Scottish SPCA has a unique insight into the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on people and their pets. Last year, a quarter of a million people called our helpline and calls to relinquish animals trebled. 

“Prevention is in our name and Pet Aid allows us to prevent suffering by providing food and supplies to those who need it, instead of picking up the pieces after things have gone wrong. 

“If anyone is struggling to care for an animal, they should call the Scottish SPCA’s confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999 for advice and support.”
