A DOG charity has launched an urgent appeal for resources.

Miss Mollies Rescue is a non-profit, volunteer-led dog rescue which aims to find a permanent home for abandoned dogs.

The charity has recently opened a kennel in Scrayingham, and is appealing for extra resources during the coronavirus pandemic.

People can donate anything from blankets, towels, dog food, toys, drinking bowls or leashes.

“Malton is a very supportive, dog-friendly town with a generous community,” said Angela Egan, a volunteer for Miss Mollies Rescue and campaigner for the Dog Friendly Awards, recently awarded to Malton.

“Whenever I ask people about the appeal of Malton, they either say the exceptional standard of restaurants and bistros or the dog-friendly atmosphere.

“We are extremely appreciative of any donations by members of the public.”

Miss Mollies Rescue was set up by Jeanne Thompson in 2003 to support unwanted and abandoned dogs in both North Yorkshire and abroad, mainly Spain and Romania.

Volunteers support Miss Mollies Rescue in various ways, including collecting and fostering dogs, completing home checks, fundraising, administrative work and much more.

Maison Du Vin, a wine bar, café lounge and boutique shop in Malton, is offering a collection point for any donations from Tuesday to Saturday, between 2pm and 8pm.
