UPDATE: Surrey SPCA overwhelmed with bedding donations

Surrey shelter inundated with sheets, towels and blankets; has run out of space to store them.

The Surrey SPCA is in need of bedding for its animals.

The Surrey SPCA is thanking the public after an outpouring of donations of towels, blankets and sheets to help keep animals warm as the temperature drops.

In September, a ringworm breakout brought into the shelter through stray kittens forced staff to close until late October. Before re-opening, the shelter had to allocate funds to treat the animals, leaving them with little  to spend on bedding, and a plea for donations went out in November.

The Surrey shelter is now stocked full and has no more room to store donated bedding.

Officials are asking that the public to hold off on any more donations of bedding until the new year.
