Don’t for­get to care for your pets as you pre­pare for your hol­i­days

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

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.
