Scottish SPCA officers will still attend calls to rescue abandoned or neglected animals during the coronavirus pandemic, the animal welfare charity has announced.
A new fostering service for animals will also be introduced after rehoming was suspended in order to comply with non-essential travel guidance.
This includes the charity’s base at Petterden, close to the A90 between Dundee and Forfar, which was closed to the public last week.
Scottish SPCA chief executive Kirsteen Campbell said: “During this unprecedented health crisis, we are committed to protecting animals and serving Scotland’s communities as best we can.
“In line with Government guidance, we must suspend rehoming activity to keep the public and our team safe. Our team planned for this and we are in a position to foster out suitable animals to loving homes until the pandemic is over.”
