JACKY Rank­ine, our newly ap­pointed fundraiser and vol­un­teer co-or­di­na­tor was de­lighted to rep­re­sent the branch at the Hilling­don Vol­un­teer Fair, held at Uxbridge Li­brary on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 19.

It was an op­por­tu­nity for us to spread the word about the wel­fare work the lo­cal branch is do­ing as well as re­cruit­ing ad­di­tional vol­un­teers for our char­ity, which are much needed.

It was also a plea­sure to meet Hilling­don’s Deputy Mayor John Hens­ley and wife and to es­tab­lish his gen­uine in­ter­est in the work we do .

Read­ers may not be aware that RSPCA Hilling­don sur­vives only on pub­lic do­na­tions and lo­cal fundrais­ing.

We cer­tainly couldn’t do it with­out our team of com­mit­ted vol­un­teers.

Have you any time to spare to help at our Hilling­don Shop, dur­ing the week, Satur­days and Christ­mas Sun­day? If so please do get in con­tact with us either by email or pop­ping into the shop, you will re­ceive a very warm wel­come.

Mushi is a six-month-old black kit­ten who came into our branch in Au­gust. She is a beau­ti­ful lit­tle lady with a per­son­al­ity to match.

Mushi loves lots of at­ten­tion n so would not like ke to share her spot­light with any other an­i­mals.

As well as cud­dles, she loves noth­ing more than to play with her toys and have a good scratch on her scratch­ing post. Can you of­fer lit­tle M Mushi her for­ever home? If so please go to www.r www.rspc­ahilling­don clinic clinic.org.uk for an app ap­pli­ca­tion form.

F For peace of mind, wh why not get your pet mi mi­crochipped? We are of­fer­ing mi­cro chi chip­ping at the clinc unt un­til Satur­day, Nov Novem­ber 7 for £5, by appo ap­point­ment only.

Fire­work Night and Di­wali are just around the cor­ner and can be a very anx­ious time for an­i­mals as fire­works are used for longer pe­ri­ods of time.

We rec­om­mend dog own­ers close win­dows, doors and cur­tains, and use the TV or ra­dio to muf­fle the sound. You may also want to con­sider a plug in calm­ing pheromone or sprin­kle laven­der on their bed.

Never pun­ish your dog for dis­play­ing un­wanted be­hav­iour, this will only dis­tress them more.

We rec­om­mend cat own­ers bring their pets in­doors be­fore it gets dark and have a lit­ter tray, wa­ter and food avail­able.

Med­i­ca­tion is also avail­able – please dis­cuss with your vet.
