A RUBERY charity is asking animal lovers to spare a few hours supporting its shop.

The Rubery store of the People's Dispensary for Sick Animals (PDSA), in New Road, is appealing for volunteers who are passionate about pets, and can help lend a hand.

Money raised at the shop is donated to the vital work of the charity, who care for sick and injured pets. Some of the funds will provide PDSA-funded treatment in the local area.

The shop’s assistant store manager, Leesa Wimbush, said: “We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are passionate about pets and who can lend a hand at our Rubery PDSA store.

“Volunteering for PDSA is fun and the skills you learn look great on any CV, plus you get to meet new people and make some friends along the way.

“No previous retail experience is needed, as full training is provided for all new volunteers. So, if you would like to help sick and injured pets, why not join our friendly volunteer team here at Rubery?”

For more information call Leesa at the store on 0121 453 8200.
