THE animals at Blue Cross Rehoming Centre in Bromsgrove will be getting their own taste of Christmas this year.

Volunteers and staff will be at the centre on Wildmoor Lane on Christmas Day, to make sure every animal gets some love and attention... and even their very own Christmas dinner.

From turkey for the dogs and cats, to fresh, crisp vegetables for the rabbits, vulnerable pets at Blue Cross in Catshill will still be getting a taste of home.

Bromsgrove Blue Cross centre manager, Neil Edwards said: “Christmas is a wonderful time to think of others, and it’s always uplifting to see the community come together and help those who might not experience the warmth and love the festive season can bring.

"We’re really grateful to those who are also thinking about pets too, who may have lost their owners or been abandoned.

"On Christmas day our centre will be making sure the pets feel the festive spirit, by serving them up a hearty meal.

"We couldn’t do our work without the support of our community, so the team at Blue Cross is calling out to animal lovers for their help to make this an extra special Christmas for pets in need.”

Last year Blue Cross helped nearly 30,000 pets with their veterinary services, helped to rehome almost 9,000 animals, and helped more than 8,000 people grieving pets who had died.
