Snip and chip of­fer to keep your pet safe, healthy and well be­haved

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
