Dozens of cats and small animals will be rescued and rehomed by Lincs Ark Animal Welfare thanks to a donation from Rooke’s Pet Products.

Rooke’s raised £587 for the organisation through its charity calendar, selling almost 600 copies.

The calendar features 13 animal finalists from the shop’s Faces of Rooke’s competition.

It wasn’t just animals cared for by Lincs Ark that Rooke’s helped last week, though.

The store also hosted a micro-chipping event organised by South Holland District Council.

As of April 6, it is now compulsary for owners to have their dogs micro-chipped.

Almost 100 dogs were micro-chipped for free by vets from Sutterton Veterinary Hospital at the event.

The chip allows lost dogs to be reunited with their owners and is a deterrent to pet theft.
