The hard working crew have also found loving homes for 66 rabbits and guinea pigs.

The figure, which equates to two cats for every day of the year, has smashed all previous re-homing figures.

Cat Coordinator Sue Taft said “It’s due to the fantastic work of our fosterers and volunteers and it’s all done without a dedicated animal home!

“Without a re-homing centre we rely heavily on fosterers to care for the animals in their own homes, which is why we are so extremely pleased.”

Volunteers from the Milton Keynes and North Bucks branch, which is a separate charity from the national RSPCA, are being treated to a celebratory tea on Sunday 3rd April at Great Linford Memorial Hall between 2pm and 4pm. Anybody interested in becoming a volunteer is welcome to attend.

Jean Kelly, branch chairman said “I’m so proud of the team, our animal coordinators, feeders, fosterers, volunteers and our shops who have all worked so incredibly hard. And of course it wouldn’t have been possible without the help of The Citizen.

“Thank you to everyone who has given our animals new loving homes and donated to help them with the best possible care.”
