The Scottish SPCA are issuing a warning about bogus Inspectors trying to remove animals from properties. We've had reports in Renfrewshire and Perthshire areas but are asking everyone to be vigilant
They are using a white van with Scottish SPCA stickers on it. Our vans are predominantly black with our branding as shown in the image below
Genuine Inspectors will be able to produce photographic ID and will be happy to provide you with their vehicle registration.
If you are unsure about someone who comes to your door please ask them to wait outside and call us immediately. Our Inspectors will respect your need to do this.
Our confidential animal helpline can be reached on 03000 999 999. Find out more on the following link:
