Help pave a 'paw path' for RSPCA's elderly animals.

ANIMAL lovers had been urged to purchase a paw print to help the RSPCA.

The charity teamed up with Armitage's Pennine Garden Centre at Shelley to mark National Pet Month and launched an appeal to support elderly animals in care.

People were urged to help fund a 'paw path' through Armitage's.

Lauren Moore, branch fundraiser at the RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield and district branch, said: "We are so proud of our Elderly Animal Rehoming Scheme, which is now in its 12th year and has matched hundreds of elderly animals to new families, so they can live out their twilight years in comfort.

"We're so grateful to Armitage's for helping us raise awareness of this scheme."

Paw prints cost PS3 or PS5 with all the money raised going directly to the RSPCA's care of elderly animals in Kirklees, in particular the veterinary care needed.

Call 01422 365628 for information.

The paw path ran until the end of last month.
