The Manx Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is running out of money.
Writing her regular column for the society in this week’s Isle of Man Courier, Margaret Mansfield outlines the situation.
She says: ‘We are dipping so deep into our reserves that we are running out of money very quickly.’
She says that work on Ard Jerkyll had come from ringfenced money designed for specific purposes.
‘Even the most generous trust or corporate supporter is reluctant to provide funds for running costs as they like to sponsor a specific project, which is wonderful and enhances the living conditions for the animals in residence but, with running costs at an all-time high we need day-to-day help.’
