AN ANIMAL rehoming charity will reopen its shops next week.

The RSPCA West Dorset Branch will reopen its three charity shops - in Dorchester, Sherborne and Bridport - on Monday, April 12.

Customers must make an appointment before visiting.

A spokesman for Taylors Animal Centre at Kingston Maurward said: "Sales from our shops help us to maintain our unique animal centre at Kingston Maurward. Our centre will be open again to the general public on April 12, by appointment only.

"Please remember our Taylors' pledge. We will never put a healthy animal to sleep and it is our pledge to find them the forever home that they all deserve. Thank you for your continued support."
