The Scottish SPCA was delighted when six year old Alyssa from Portobello, Edinburgh decided to raise vital funds for Scotland’s animals by selling her toys.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity heard how little Alyssa started a fundraiser after finding the latest Scottish SPCA appeal at her door.
Scottish SPCA Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre Superintendent Sharon Comrie said, “We were touched to hear about Alyssa selling her beloved toys to raise funds for Scotland’s animals.

“We don’t receive any government or lottery funding which means we rely on the public to be able to continue our work rescuing and rehoming animals in desperate need of our help.

“Alyssa saw Snoop the dog on our appeal which urged her to start fundraising. “Snoop was extremely emaciated and after being rehabilitated in our care, he made a full recovery and has now found his forever home.”
Alyssa’s mum Anna said, “Alyssa has a much loved soft toy collection and decided to give some of her toys away to help the animals in the care of the Scottish SPCA.

“She has decided to donate the unclaimed toys to charity when she reaches her £100 target.”

Anyone who would like to help Alyssa reach her fundraising target should text £1 to 70070 or visit
