Brinsley Animal Rescue Street Collection

This is a rare opportunity for a City-wide street collection on Sunday 11th October, for which lots of help is requested, from 11am until 5pm (or later) near Primart by tourist information centre on Smithy Row (http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=NG1+2BY).

Brinsley Animal Rescue is a not for profit organisation dedicated to caring for animals. Our primary mission is to relieve the suffering of animals and birds. Many of the animals that come to us are simply 'surplus to requirements' from the meat, dairy and egg industry.
Because such animals are deemed unprofitable then it is our aim to take them on and find them loving homes in which they can enjoy the retirement they deserve.
