Free RSPCA health checks
ABOUT a third of the dogs that attended the RSPCA’s community action day in Clarkson were booked in for follow-up surgery or consultations.
About 150 people attended the August 24 event at Anthony Waring Park, where 60 dogs and puppies received free health checks.
RSPCA WA community outreach co-ordinator Nat Foster said about 20 to 25 of those pets were booked into South Metro Tafe for surgery or consultations.
They also microchipped 18 dogs and puppies and gave worm and flea treatments for cats, which are generally not allowed at action days.
Dog trainers offered discounts to people wanting dog training lessons, which are now done at the park.
RSPCA held the event in Clarkson after identifying it as an area in need of animal welfare education.
