"In those three years we have homed 4,000 animals. Four-thousands animals in the time that this shop has been open and that is thanks to the support of people here in Crosby.
"We are sad to see this shop close, but we know that we will continue to get the support of the people in this community for the work we do at the rescue centre."
Bill Esterson said he was delighted to continue to support the charity.
