Eden Animal Rescue Centre has launched a desperate appeal for volunteers after a number of staff have had to leave because of the cost of travelling to the rescue centre.
The centre needs six more volunteers to complement the 20 they already have and three paid employees.
The centre looks after around 30 cats and 20 dogs.
