Three members of staff at a Kirkcaldy vets spent the night in the doghouse recently, but it was all for a worthy cause.

Natasha Browne (31), a vet receptionist from Leven along with colleagues Jo Calver (27), from Kirkcaldy and Dawn McGowan (41), from Burntisland, both vets at the Equipet Veterinary Hospital in Kirkcaldy’s Nicol Street, held a sponsored sleepover in the animal kennels on the premises to raise cash for the Fife Cat Shelter.

And after a fairly uncomfortable night in the bunk kennels, with only sleeping bags for padding, the women raised £600 for the charity.

Natasha explained: “We deal with the cat shelter regularly and it does a great job rehoming stray cats and those handed in by people who no longer want or can’t cope with them, as well as neutering. worming and vaccinating them. It is struggling for funding and we wanted to do something to help.

“We asked our family, friends and clients to sponsor us to spend a night in the kennels and they were very generous.”

Equipet staff are now planning a sponsored walk between its premises in Kirkcaldy and Burntisland on August 31 to raise more funds for the charity.
