Rescue centre honours Captain Tom on his 100th birthday by naming cat after him
The RSPCA Halifax, Huddersfield, Bradford and District branch are celebrating the 100th birthday of WWII veteran and NHS fundraising hero, Captain Tom Moore, by naming their newest rescue cat... Captain Tom!
The rehoming centre, who have recently started their animal adoptions again after the government restrictions were lifted, felt that Captain Tom Moore’s incredible efforts should be honoured and decided that naming their newest feline resident ‘Captain Tom’ would be a special way to thank the military veteran for helping to raise millions for the NHS.
Digital & Community Fundraiser Fay Gibbons said, “The whole nation has been cheering on Captain Tom Moore with his amazing fundraising. We wanted to wish Tom a very happy 100th birthday and say thank you to such an incredible man, so we thought this would be a lovely way!”
The feline Captain Tom is available for rehoming from the RSPCA animal centre in Halifax; the adoption process has been adapted to abide with social distancing regulations. To find more about Captain Tom, the new rehoming process and general charity news, visit the centre's website.
