WNAA receives no government funding and relies on public support and donations to secure its existence and raise the £1,700 it costs to undertake each of their rescue missions. Profits from their charity shops are an important source of income.

A spokesperson for the charity said: “Our shops are not just a fantastic source of income for our charity, but also a great way of interacting with our local communities.

“As well as helping our charity continue to save lives, shoppers in Kingsthorpe will be able to grab a bargain!”
