Tea party for pet owners


Pet lovers in Suffolk are invited to join in the fun at the Blue Cross Paws for Tea party in Felixstowe on Saturday 17th May, from 11 to 4pm.

Staff and volunteers at the pet charity’s rehoming centre in Walton High Street are donning their aprons and baking up some treats in preparation for the team’s annual tea party. Visitors will be able to enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of cake for a small donation which will go towards the care of the homeless cats and dogs at the centre.

Andrew Gillon, Blue Cross rehoming centre manager in Felixstowe, said: “Events like our tea party are a really important way for us to raise money so we can continue caring for all the homeless cats and dogs that come into the centre. And what easier way to help needy pets than by enjoying a cup of tea and some delicious cake? It’s the ‘purr-fect’ excuse to take a break for a cuppa!”

Last year, Blue Cross found new homes for over 8,000 pets and treated over 30,000 sick animals, but there are still many more pets in need.
