ANIMAL lovers are being asked to remember sick and injured pets during PDSA Legacy Awareness Week this week.
The animal charity is encouraging more people throughout Yorkshire to leave bequest in their wills.
Two out of every three veterinary treatments provided by the PDSA are paid for by gifts left in wills.
Among those helped was springer spaniel Scooby, who was left fighting for his life after a ball became lodged in his throat.
His owner, Debra Noble, sought help at Huddersfield PDSA and staff removed the ball and checked he had not suffered any long-term effects from his ordeal.
A PDSA spokeswoman said: "Pets play an important role in many people's lives and the PDSA's free PetAid services are lifelines for pet owners who cannot afford vets' fees.
"By making a bequest you can help PDSA continue its work of treating sick and injured pets while helping others experience the joys of owning a pet."
To be eligible for PDSA treatment a pet owner must live within the designated postcode area of a PetAid hospital or practice and be receiving housing benefit or council tax benefit.
