Six res­cued from puppy farm mis­ery

Can you give an an­i­mal a lov­ing home and a new start in life?

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

IN A so-called civ­i­lized coun­try puppy farm­ing still con­tin­ues and this lo­cal branch have res­cued six ex–brood bitches that are in ap­palling con­di­tion.

Un­der­weight and ne­glected, their breed­ing days are over and they were dis­carded like old stock.

Most have skin con­di­tions and re­quire daily bathing. We are thank­ful to all who have con­trib­uted so far to our ‘Bath Fund’, but still need more to make this task more com­fort­able for the dogs.

They will re­quire on­go­ing care for many weeks be­fore they are fit to be re­homed.

Poppy is pic­tured re­ceiv­ing a sooth­ing bath.

Our costs for this ex­er­cise will be enor­mous and we would re­mind all that RSPCA week, run­ning from June 1 to 6, ur­gently needs vol­un­teers to help us raise funds for such res­cues.

Khadim, our six-year-old gin­ger and white ite male, is a lovely na­tured cat with a very big heart.

Un­for­tu­nately, Khadim can be very ner­vous of new peo­ple we don’t know why he is this way, but once he gets to know you, he is very lov­ing and will en­joy hours of cud­dles and fuss.

He would pre­fer a home with older peo­ple, with a lap to cud­dle up on, and prob­a­bly would be happy as an in­door cat, as he can be very ner­vous.

Please get in touch if you would like to ap­ply to adopt Khadim.

Simon is a lovely chatty boy, who loves a cud­dle and lots of fuss and com­pany.

He came to us as an in­jured stray with no micr mi­crochip and a very poor poorly leg, but due to the fanta fan­tas­tic care given by our c clinic and hom­ing staff staff, with time, love and med med­i­ca­tion, he has made afa full re­cov­ery.

He is now look­ing for ala lov­ing home where he wo would be the only cat in som some­one’s life.

S Simon has been thro through so much and has com come so far – all he needs now is a nice home to call his o own. Can you of­fer Simo Simon the lov­ing for­ever hom home that he so much d de­serves?

We are in need of kit­ten food and scratch­ing posts with our in­creas­ing

num­bers of mums with kit­tens that are com­ing into the cen­tre if you can help how­ever small it can make such a big dif­fer­ence.

If you think you can of­fer one of our an­i­mals a lov­ing home then please ring RSPCA Hilling­don

Branch on 01895 833417 or visit our web­site www.rspc­ahilling­don­clinic.org.uk to down­load an ap­pli­ca­tion form.
