A leading animal welfare charity has completed the expansion of its facilities in the north-east.
The SSPCA has revamped its equine vet room to help treat horses at its Aberdeenshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre in Drumoak.
The redevelopment was supported by the Tesco Bags of Help scheme, while the work was completed by Sunnyside of Drumoak.
One of the first aims of the charity was to improve the welfare of cart horses.
Centre manager Graeme Innes said: “We are so grateful to the organisations for helping to expand our equine vet room.
“This project has been very well received by staff and vets as it allows us to work more freely and safely when examining and treating the equines in our care. Many of the horses arrive in our care unhandled or very nervous.
“Apache donated equine stocks and special equine scales were donated by funds from Bumi Armada.
“The room alterations were funded by the Tesco Bags of Help scheme and carried out by Sunnyside Construction of Drumoak.
“It was a fantastic effort from all involved and this will help us provide horses with the best possible care on their way to finding their forever homes.”
