THE Scottish SPCA Glasgow Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre have dedicated their brand-new kennel block to Rikki and Kate Fulton.
There to unveil the plaque was Scots actor Tony Roper, a close friend of the couple who said the gesture was a “fitting, fitting tribute” to the “lovely couple”.
Scottish SPCA Chief Superintendent Mike Flynn said, “We are indebted to Rikki and Kate Fulton for all their support over the years. The development of our centre in Glasgow was made possible in part by a hugely generous legacy donation left to the centre by both Rikki and Kate.
“We had limited space available on which to build so developed an innovative solution with our two tiered kennel blocks. They are the first of their kind in Scotland and increased our kennel spaces from 99 to 150.”
After the big reveal, Tony shared some stories with the Sunday Post about Rikki’s lifelong love of dogs, why his heart belongs to Scotland, whether Rab C Nesbitt will be making a return and the next tour of The Steamie.
At the moment the Scottish SPCA Glasgow Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre houses around 150 animals, including dogs, cats, guinea pigs and even snakes.
