Don’t forget to care for your pets as you prepare for your holidays
IN THE excitement of preparing for a holiday or weekend away, don’t forget to make arrangements for your pets. It can take time to sort out care arrangements so you should always do this well in advance. If you are not taking your pet with you when you go away, they will still need looking after when you’re not there.
Never leave your pet on their own without a responsible person to care for them; you must make sure they get the care they need.
You should also ensure your cat/dog is micro chipped and has a collar with a tag on it.
If you are taking your dog away with you NEVER leave it alone in the car, if it is warm outside THINK it can get unbearably hot in a car if the outside temp is 22C the inside car temp can be 47C and leaving a window open or a sun shield won’t help.
If you find a stray dog it is legally the responsibility of your local council for dealing with stray dogs and they will hold them for seven days, many healthy stray dogs obviously from caring homes are not reunited because they have no microchip/tags.
Gorgeous Mindy is looking for a new home after coming into our care when her owners moved abroad.
Whilst she can be a little shy at first, once she gets to know you this delightful three-year-old black and white cat really enjoys a fuss. She loves her home comforts and a nice bed to curl up in for a snooze. She would prefer not to live with other cats or dogs. Is there a special place in your heart and home for Mindy?
We also have a large number of beautiful bunny rabbits aged three months and upwards all looking for their forever homes.
Rabbits need a spacious hutch and run to give them plenty of room to stretch and exercise. Could you help?
If you think you can offer one of our animals a loving home, including one of our 40 kittens, please ring RSPCA Hillingdon Branch on 01895 833417 or visit our website www. rspcahillingdonclinic.org. uk to download an application form.
