Charity gig for animals in need


THE SCOTTISH SPCA is hosting a charity gig for animals in their care.

Join the charity’s colleagues for a night of band music at WireMill social club in Musselburgh on Friday 23 February from 7pm and help animals like Dotty and Khoshekh.

Dotty is a Staffordshire bull terrier with lots of personality.  She has been at the Edinburgh rescue and rehoming centre for 313 days.

Dotty is very friendly but can be overzealous at times so would be best suited living in an adult-only home as the only animal in the household.

Khoshekh is an older cat who has been at the centre for 242 days.

As he is an older boy he prefers the quieter life and is not afraid to tell you off if he’s had enough affection. He is looking for an adult-only home with someone who has experience with lots of grooming as he will need help maintain his beautiful coat.

East regional fundraising lead, Claire Burns, said: “As anyone who has rescued an animal will tell you, Dotty and Khoshekh will be so grateful for a second chance at a loving home. 

“It costs £56,000 a day to run the charity so events like this are vital in raising much needed funds to help the animals in our care until they can be rehomed.

“Please come along and support and enjoy a great night.”

The band who have signed up are: 

Redwood Rejects
