A charity shop which has been rehoming dogs and rasing money for animal shelters for 16 years is set to close.

Great Yarmouth Against Animal Cruelty in Market Row, Great Yarmouth, will shut its doors on April 4.

Owner of the shop, Giles Robins, 54, said the decision to close was a hard one but a declining footfall over the last couple of years made it difficult to justify continuing.

Mr Robins said: “We are very grateful to all our customers and hope they will keep in touch with us.

“Both my wife and I are animal lovers and we hope people continue to spread the message of taking good care of them.”
