Dogs in Hot Cars

 

Anyone seeing a dog in distress in a hot car should ring the RSPCA 24 Hour Helpline on 03001234999. There is now a priority button on the recorded message. It is Option 1.

Please do not send emails about this or any other concern about animals in distress as emails are only checked by a volunteer and are not for urgent matters. The local Branch has put up signs all over our area advising this course of action.

Adopting a cat from our local RSPCA Branch

 

Every cat that comes into our care has a full health check including being tested for FELV. This is really important if going into a household that has existing cats. All cats are treated for worms and fleas. Our cats are given treatment for fleas and ticks that last for 3 months. With the exception of young kittens all cats are neutered and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Adopters of young kittens are given a voucher to cover the cost of neutering when the kitten is old enough. All this treatment costs our local branch around £97 for a male cat & £120 for a female. We keep cats in our care for a minimum of 3 weeks until they have been given both vaccinations. It costs £37 a week to board a cat so add that to the veterinary care makes the total cost in excess of £200 even if a cat is lucky enough to find a new home straightaway. Sometimes cats can spend many months in our care before they find their forever home. Many cats also need extra veterinary care, (not many come in in tip top condition!)such as dental treatment.

The adoption fee for a cat in our care is £50 so we think this is a reasonable fee and not a money making exercise.

Our cattery is bursting at the seams with cats looking for new homes & we have many on a waiting list to come in once we have space available.

If you are looking to adopt a cat please look at the lovely pictures on our cats looking for new homes page. Ring 01262 409080 or 07712459857 for more information.

 

 

 

We have 4 dogs looking for foster homes or new homes. Please see our dog page

 

 

Feral cats feeding.

 

These are just some of the many ferals on a local industrial estate that are being fed & cared for by two local RSPCA supporters. In the last 18 months they have caught 41 cats & had them tested & neutered. 22 of these cats were female so this has prevented many litters of kittens being born which would have added to the feral population. There are 5 feeding stations & some cat shelters on the estate & as well as thanking our 2 supporters for their time & patience in feeding & catching these cats, we must also thank the local businesses who allow them on to their premises to carry out this vital work. The testing & neutering of these cats is paid for by our local Branch. The cats are also routinely wormed to help keep them healthy.

 

Hedgehog Release

 

Eleven hedgehogs who have overwintered at our Hedgehog Hotel have now been released back into the areas where they were found. See pictures on our Hedgehog page of Pinky, Perky & Porky, three siblings who were all found in daylight in Bainton. It was touch & go for poor Porky who was covered in fly strike.
