Volunteers are needed to give 70 abandoned dogs a Christmas dinner.

The RSPCA Danaher Animal Home in Wethersfield is organising a ‘dog’s dinner’ day on December 17.

Volunteer Lucy Smith said: “We shall be cooking liver, vegetables and rice with gravy as a nice home-cooked meal for the homeless dogs.”

Donations of time or money are welcome.

He is described as a sweet natured dog that loves long walks and cuddles.

Anyone wishing to adopt him should call 0300 111 4321 or email reception@rspcaessex.org.uk
