People across West Norfolk rallied around to take in rescue dogs and cats amid fears an animal sanctuary would flood.
Staff at the West Norfolk RSPCA Rehoming Centre put out a plea for help last night (Thursday, December 5) after it was feared that the deluge would reach the kennels at Eau Brink, Tilney All Saints.
Centre manager Penny Skate received a “flood” of calls shortly after the appeal went out on KLFM.
Caring people across the area agreed to take in 16 dogs with five going to the Dog Hotel in Hillington. Ten cats were cared by members of the public and staff at the Pine Cones cattery in Pentney.
Mrs Skate said: “I would like to thank all the kind and generous people who opened their homes to our animals.
“We decided to do this as precaution if we were flooded.
“I am very grateful to everyone and KLFM.”
She also added that one family have expressed an interest in adopting the German Shepherd they took in.
