The shop, which will be located at 76 Liverpool Road, joins existing stores in Longridge and Chorley.

RSPCA Preston and District Branch is an independently registered charity helping local animals. Its mission is to provide safe and happy homes to abandoned, neglected or abused animals, to nurse them back to health, rehabilitate them, and find them their forever home. The branch also provides subsidised vet care for pets whose owners are on benefits.

The charity’s Claire Bradley said: “Our job is never easy, as the volumes of unwanted animals just keeps getting higher.  

“As a separately registered charity with no government funding, we need to raise our own money for any of the work we do to help local animals.

“Our retail network is a crucial source of sustainable income for our branch. To continue our work and to help more animals in need, we’re opening the new charity shop on Penwortham high street.

“It was very important for us to choose a shop on a vibrant high street with a good community feel. We have received lots of local support and well wishes from the local community and animal lovers alike. The shop’s location is ideal for us too, as it’s near to a local vets and across the road from a pet shop!

“We hope people will come along and visit when we’re open. We guarantee a warm welcome, lots of quality bargains and information on animals up for fostering and adoption, as well as information about our Branch and the work we carry out.”
