AN urgent appeal for cat litter donations has been issued by staff at the RSPCA’s Newport Animal Centre.

The centre based at Hartridge Farm Road is in desperate need of cat litter for the 21 cats they are currently caring for.

Venus and MurrayDeputy manager at the centre, Rebecca Jeffery, said: “We go through three large dustbins of litter every three days, which is roughly 120 litres.

“We used to get our litter from a large retailer, who would supply it for free, but sadly they have recently told us that they can no longer do this.

“Cat litter is proving very costly for us, so if anyone is able to donate any to us we would very much appreciate it.

“We are also always in need of any dog toys for the many dogs we have in our care.”

If anyone is able to donate any cat litter, they can drop it off at the centre which is open 11.30am to 4pm every day, except Thursdays.
