The development of our centre in Glasgow was made possible in part by a hugely generous legacy donation left to the centre by both Rikki and Kate.

“We had limited space available on which to build so developed an innovative solution with our two tiered kennel blocks. They are the first of their kind in Scotland and increased our kennel spaces from 99 to 150.

“Dedicating one of these blocks to Rikki and Kate felt like a fitting tribute for all of their support.”

Tony Roper said, “I’m delighted to be invited along to unveil the dedication for Rikki and Kate. They both passionately supported Glasgow Dog and Cat Home, and really believed in the value of the Scottish SPCA.

“The extension here has allowed the charity to rescue and save the lives of even more animals and I know Rikki and Kate would be proud to see that their contribution helped make this all possible.”

The Scottish SPCA do not receive any government or lottery funding, and rely entirely on public donations. Anyone interested in leaving a legacy to the Scottish SPCA or fundraising should contact the fundraising team on 03000 999 999.
