Blue Cross, in Grimsby and Victoria, London, is set to star in a new primetime series starting on ITV1 tonight (Monday, September 7).
Narrated by animal lover and star of ‘The Good Life’ Felicity Kendal, ‘Inside Animal A & E’ highlights the work of the charity’s animal hospitals, mobile clinic and ambulance services.
Natalie Everett, deputy nurse manager at Blue Cross, in Grimsby, said; “We were thrilled to be involved in the making of these programmes and are very excited that the series is going to show our work to so many people tuning in every Monday. We are proud to show the behind-the-scenes work we do and hope it encourages more animal lovers to support us in the future.”
Episode one features London animal ambulance drivers Sonia and Angela pick up a 50 kilo Dogue De Bordeaux with a mysterious ‘bedwetting’ problem, which vet Cristina must get to the bottom of. Vet Lawrence is trying to find out why guinea pig Noel is feeling anxious and upset. In Grimsby, volunteer Helen is giving round the clock care to tiny orphan kitten Oliver.
Felicity Kendal said: “I was delighted to be invited to narrate this wonderful series about the work of Blue Cross in Victoria and Grimsby. I’ve long supported the charity and it was a delight to see the incredible work they do to help pets in need and their devoted owners.”
