PDSA shops across Yorkshire are appealing for help.
The shops, including one in Huddersfield, have been hit by a severe drop in donations.
The veterinary charity, which provides free care to the pets of people in need, says donations have hit an all-time-low, which could be bad news for poorly pets.
“A combination of the recession and poor weather has hit our donations hard,” said Andrew Holl, PDSA Director of Business Services. “Many of our stores are facing an all-time-low on clothing and bric-a-brac. “Nationally, we have seen a 22% fall in the amount of bags coming through the doors, compared to this time last year.”
PDSA’s network of over 170 shops helps to raise millions for the charity which provides its veterinary services through 48 pet hospitals across the UK and through a network of 350 private practices.
