The shelter wants to pay tribute to Paul O’Grady’s amazing service to animals.

Newcastle Dog & Cat Shelter have launched an appeal in honour of the late TV personality and notorious dog lover Paul O’Grady.

The shelter has launched its Sore Paws campaign to raise money for its veterinary bill which stands at £120,000 per year.

Paul O’Grady sadly passed away on Tuesday at the age of 67.

Writing on Twitter, they said: ‘As a rescue shelter, we take in animals who are often in dire need of medical care.

‘We will always give animals the treatment they need to give them the best quality of life, however, the cost of veterinary bills can be overwhelming.’

‘Paul was a hero in the animal world and he made a huge difference to animals all over the country so it only seems right to dedicate this post to him,’ they concluded.

Paul was an ambassador of Battersea Cats and Dog Home in London and since his death the charity has raised over £100,000 in tribue to him.

As little as £5 could pay towards treatment for an ear infection, £15 towards specialist food and £30 could pay for monthly skin treatment for animals in discomfort.

You can donate to the appeal here.
