Snip and chip offer to keep your pet safe, healthy and well behaved
LOCAL pet owners who are receiving benefits, or on a low income are invited to the RSPCA Chip and Snip Event, on Saturday June 27.
Come on down to Millend Sport and Social Club, Penn Road WD3 3QN, between 11.30am and 5pm, for pet bargains.
“We know that owning a pet can be expensive, but RSPCA Middlesex North is here to help. We are hosting a ‘snip and chip’ day to help owners, who otherwise may not be able to afford it, to protect their pet.
We’re offering free flea, and worming treatments as well as vouchers for pet neutering and spaying, and microchipping for just £5. These are all essential parts of responsible pet ownership,” says Aileen Scheers, of the RSPCA Middlesex branch.
Spaying – removing the ovaries of a female pet – offers lifelong health benefits as well as making sure she doesn’t leave home to have kittens, or burdening you with the expense of caring for and rehoming kittens.
Neutering – removing the testicles of your male pet – will vastly improve your pet’s behaviour and keep him close to home.
He will stop spraying urine, and will be less likely to be involved in a costly and painful car accident.
Cat, rabbit and ferret neutering usually costs about £90, but vouchers will be available at our event, for just £5, and the RSPCA will cover the rest of the cost for pet owners who are receiving benefits, or on a low income.
Likewise, dog neutering vouchers will be available for just £5 for small dogs, £10 for medium dogs and £20 for large dogs. Our vouchers will save you at least £250!
“There will be free goody bags for dogs and cats (while stocks last), and professional Animal Welfare Officers and vet nurses will be on hand to offer any advice and to help with any worries you may have about spaying and neutering. A trip to Millend Sport and Social Club could save you hundreds of pounds.
It also helps us at the RSPCA, because many unwanted baby animals often end up in our care,” said Aileen.
When you come to the event, please make sure that all dogs areon leads and all cats, rabbits and ferrets are in pet carriers.
If you have any questions about the event, please call Cheryl on 0208 9669688.
