Staff and Customers of Scotmid Co-operative and their Semi Chem Branches in Northern Ireland have together helped raise a phenomenal £27,500 for the Ulster Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals as part of our #PenniesForPaws Partnership.

Brendan Mullan, Chief Executive of the USPCA, said; “The USPCA has been privileged to be involved in the Scotmid partnership working together to raise funds for the USPCA. The past year has been very exciting and we sincerely appreciate the support of the Northern Ireland Semi Chem stores. It is through the success of this partnership, that we will be able to continue our vital services – rescuing injured wildlife, investigating animal cruelty, finding new caring homes for abandoned pets and promoting responsible pet ownership through our schools outreach programme.”

“I speak on behalf of the USPCA Board, Staff, Members and the Animals we assist, when expressing our thanks to Scotmid Cooperative and Semi Chem staff and customers for their compassion and support of the cause of animal welfare.”
