ANIMALS in need of new homes will get a faster service thanks to a dedicated RSPCA van.
The charity’s West Suffolk branch has had to rely on the uniformed RSPCA inspectors to collect animals for rehoming, which had to be fitted in around the welfare work that is their main role.
But on Monday, the branch took delivery of a Vauxhall Combo van, sponsored by Bury’s Eastgate Veterinary Practice who do the branch’s cat and dog work.
Volunteer Dog rehoming coordinator Mike Howell said: “The inspectors are so busy with other things it took them a long time to get it done so we felt that if we had our own van we could do it more quickly.”
The van will be used to collect animals from all over West Suffolk and the Thetford area.
